Rhododendron Razorbill

By late April this rhododendron was fully out.

Papaver atlanticum

This is a poppy I grew from AGS seed, and lost the label.  I think it is possibly atlanticum.  It seems to be a short-lived perennial, at least if I take the seed pods off to prevent excessive reproduction.

Paeonia mlokosewitschii

One of my favourite photographic subjects is peonies, particularly Molly, here with early morning dew on the petals.

Paeonia triternata

This was the second peony I ever acquired, over twenty years ago, and it is thriving,

Early May

Here are a few more images I managed to take between the London and Malvern shows.

Veronica gentianoides

I showed pictures of the compact form of this veronica earlier in the year.  This is the common, tall form, but still a very fine garden plant.

Paeonia x. smouthii

This is a new plant for me this year - I think the name is correct.  It is a wonderful colour.
