Honeysuckle and wildflowers

Having a look at Kal’s blog has rather inspired me to take a look at some pictures of my plants from the summer.  It feels strange, in a way, because in December it is difficult to imagine that the garden will ever look that way again.

I planted this honeysuckle next to a clematis – the idea is that the two will mesh in together to cover this rather ugly fence.  Honeysuckle is a good, reliable plant – bees love it and mine still has berries even now.  I must feed it – I haven’t done so for ages.

I found it really difficult to take nice pictures of my wildflower patch.  By it’s nature, it’s a messy spot and in pictures I never think it looks as beautiful as it does in person.  In this picture, you can see the white foxgloves and red poppies (which I LOVE).  I hope that next year it looks even better.
