Darling, come for a stroll around the garden with me.

We will see a bee, on the verbena:

At this time of day the lawn is shaded, but most of the flowers aren’t.

Here’s the plumbago, in the shade – it’s extraordinarily vivid:

Aren’t heucheras the most stunning foliage plants? They’re so easy, you just plonk them in anywhere and they go bonkers:

I didn’t even know what to do with myself when I saw this. I had to show you:

Oh, exquisite dahlia!
