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.
