Rose Gertrude Jekyll

Monday is the day to pick some flowers from your garden to share with other like minded folk. Hosted by Cathy at https://ramblinginthegarden.wordpress.com her meme will see some wonderful vases full now the garden is full of flowers.

The first of my roses have appeared: Gertrude jekyll is a David Austin Rose which has the benefit of a strong rose scent and it is a rose which should flower from now until about October.


To this I have added the pink astrantia, Astrantia ‘Roma’ and pink persicaria Bisort.  There is the first of the pincushions of Knautia Macedonia and a sprig of the rather vaguely blue Nepeta ‘Six Hills Giant’.  The froth of puple is Thalictrum Erin again, this time with its flowers open.

The garden is growing a pace, rapidly getting away from me.  Better get back out there.  Thanks for looking.
