The occupants are :
- Rose 'Blush Noisette' - this rose can be grown as a shrub or as a small climber. It dates back to about 1814 and is subtly but deliciously scented. It has a had a first flush of flowers but it's now throwing out a second wave.
- Thyme - I'm not sure which one but in the garden for a good few years now. At this time of year it's decorated with small purple flowers which attract the pollinators. It's easy to propagate by division.
- The clematis is without a label but if my memory serves me well the odds are that it's clematis 'Blekitny Aniol', also known as 'Blue Angel'.
- Linaria purpurea 'Canon Went' - a perennial which is most easy to grow and which unlike it's purple sibling does not seed itself about prolifically.
- Achillea ptarmica 'The Pearl' - with it's dainty buttons of double white flowers is a plant that I had many moons ago but lost. It's a hardy perennial which flowers throughout the summer. I've looked for it on and off over the years but have never come across it until last Friday, when I came across a plant which was of course snapped up at once. It was a most happy conclusion to a delightful afternoon spent in the company of none other but Cathy of 'Rambling In The Garden' fame, today's hostess and her husband 'The Golfer' as well as himself. As always it was a pleasure to meet another blogger and as as you can imagine we found plenty to talk about. I think that you would like this plant Cathy, so when it's big enough a division will make its way in your direction.
It's decidedly cool as well as now raining here so time to put the kettle on when I've posted this and then to wander to see what's in everyone else's vases this week.
