Clematis

This is one of the named selections / hybrids of C. vernayi, but I forgot to photograph the label.

Chameirion angustifolium album

The white form of Rosebay Willow-Herb makes a fantastic garden plant, provided you keep it under control.

Geranium psilostemon

I thought this planting of the geranium mixed in with the umbellifer was fantastic,  But I don't know what the umbellifer is, and I am hoping Tim Ingram may be able to enlighten me.

Mallard

An interesting situation for a duck.

Another unlabelled shrub - but rather charming

That's about enough for now - it is 29C in the shade and the heat is giving me a headache.  Next stop the rose garden - anyone interested in 80 pictures of roses ?

Thanks Jon, the perfect antidote after a day of cutting grass and weeding in the heat........not so sure about the bedding displays though

Thanks Martin

I'm not sure about the bedding displays either - different yes, interesting yes, attractive hmmm.

No one has complained about the thought of me posting rose pictures, so I'll make a start before they do.

The roses were spectacular this year - my wife complained that it was like getting stuck in the middle of a paint chart.  My favourites are always single or semi-double, where you can see the stigma and stamens in the centre of the flower, particularly the ramblers with big trusses of little flowers.

I failed to photograph the label of this one, but it is more the style I like best.

Rambling roses

The rambling roses were trained over arches in the centre of the garden.
