Garden II

The garden is deliciously beginning to thicken up, though it's still very early days and next year it will (I hope) look amazing. But here are some pictures I took this morning....

(A view towards the Cell, looking through the 'hot' border: crocosmia 'lucifer', persicaria amplexicaulis 'firetail', hemerocallis 'stafford', with dahlia 'bishop of Llandaf' in the background and a lime green cotinus.)

(In the background, note the golden haze of deschampsia cepitosa...the purple foliage in the front is atriplex hortensis, a kind of edible spinach-like self-seeder which reaches six foot in height by October.)

(So much depends upon a red bucket, glazed by hose-water...)
