Friday Flowers

Last weekend I spent a few wonderful and happy days in the New Forest  where I visited some interesting and thought provoking gardens.  Lots of notes and photographs were taken so watch this space for reviews to follow soon.   Meanwhile, as a taster, here are a selection of flowers for FRIDAY FLOWERS  to whet your appetite.

There was such a wonderful array of Day Lilies, these a couple of my favourites.

The vibrant colour combinations were breathtaking.

Clever companion planting.

FURZEY GARDENS: http://www.furzey-gardens.org/

Everything I imagined it would be.

Have a great weekend everyone, and fingers crossed for some decent gardening weather.   Oh, if you were wondering what the tall grass with the pink flower is, we did too and had to ask one of the gardeners.   He said they were Fairy Fishing Rods, and when we got home and Googled it we found the proper name was Dierama or Angel’s Fishing Rods.   I think I have found another plant on my “Must have list”!

  1. Hi Ronnie,

    Lovely blooms!

    Good look with the Dierama; they can be fussy – I’ve planted a good few over the years with little success. But they are gorgeous when they’re settled and happy!!! No blooms on my mature one this year, probably due to the rain.

  2. I failed in my garden in another house but here the neighbour has a gorgeous one so I’m tempted to give them another go! Beautiful plants – dierama that is. Love these gardens you ‘ve visited :-)
