I will be looking forward to seeing the Siberian Iris - I love them! Your Veronica is such a beautiful shade of blue. And then there's the hens and chicks in the first photo. Really lovely!


Great blog....your pictures and garden are a delight. I love reading about your highs and lows.


great photo and useful blog.


What a wonderful haul! That veronica looks great against the grey stone... and I am drooling over the sempervivella. It looks great in that terracotta pot on the new plant stand.


I swear that I have gardened for so long I have had at one time or another most plants known by mankind:). You have made some good choices! With that said...I'm going to the nurseries today to see what's new:).
