There is a lot of pink in the garden at the moment. A surprising amount of pink actually, I would not have said I was a pink gardener, but apparently I am. In the foreground one of my all time favourite David Austin roses, the Portmeirion rose. Bet you are all surprised at that! It is such a good performer. It is one of the first to start flowering every year and is now bulking up to be a really good plant.
I am growing a few varieties of grass from seed, some echinops, echinacea and sanguisorbas all ready to go in next spring. I am also collecting as many self-sown Stipa Tenuissima that I can and potting them on ready to populate the area. It is a big project and one that I will blog about separately as it progresses. Its the first major project I have undertaken in the garden since completing the pond and I am very excited about it.
Big thanks as ever to Helen and her blog the Patient Gardener for hosting the End of Month Review.
