After a busy few weeks, I took a little time out today to scour the garden for any remaining blooms after the recent cold snap. I was pleasantly surprised by what I found.
There were a few anemones popping up in the ‘fairy garden’ which seem to be a second burst from the ‘St Brigid’ corms I planted out in late spring. There’s a single, big bright dahlia, from the indefatigable dahlia ‘Kennemerland.’ A slightly wonky, schizostylis coccinea adds an extra splash of pink, and the bright red dogwood stems are still holding a couple of bronze leaves.
The collection is completed with a few smaller blooms around in the garden: heuchera verbena and viburnum.
