Alstroemeria, Indian Summer certainly seems to have been the 'It' plant in 2017.

That's a a slightly unusual selection- how great to include the lovely grasses, especially the Stipa - yes it looks beautiful with the light on it. Stafford is spectacular isn't it?

glad you have this wonderful selection for us to enjoy. I don't really 'do' grasses but these are wonderful. Day lilies are such a joy.

Lovely plants and some are rather unusual. I like the tree with white bark :)

Lovely daylily, A. Indian summer is a fave of mine and Stipa gigantia, the stems get bent by the wind in my garden which is very annoying as it spoils the whole effect,yours is perfect! Your Betula silver shadow is gorgeous.

Thank you Dawn, do you pull your stipa flowers out, I do to tidy it up I tend to pull the lower ones :-))

12 Jan, 2018


No Daylily I don't, I will remove some lower ones next year though now, but look how many yours has, what a perfect example!

Cheers Dawn :-))
