I'm going to take another break now - next the second alpine house, and the plants in the beds around it.

Back to post some more - I want to water the garden, or at least the poor plants standing out in pots, but it is still 31C outside, so I'll leave that till a little later.  Temperatures here peaked at 33C today, but of course in the greenhouse it was over 40C.

Papaver apokrinomenon

Outside the alpine house there was a small planting of this unusual poppy, with buds all up a single stem, like a Meconopsis.

Sempervivums

This trough with house-leeks planted in chimney pots has become established now, and is a familiar sight on gardening blogs.

Helianthemum Welsh Flame

This spectacular orange rockrose was in perfect condition; I wonder if Aberconwy would have a plant ?

Erigeron glaucus ?

The helianthemum was set off by a beautiful purple member of the Asteraceae.  I think this is Erigeron glaucus - can anyone confirm or contradict that ?

Eriogonum kennedyi var alpigenum

In the sandbed, covered in winter, this tiny Eriogonum has become well-established, and was flowering, although not to its full potential.
