Floral Matters

An enjoyable visit to RHS Harlow Carr in the sunshine this week, although the herbaceous borders are very late.

At last my peony has flowered; they evidently don't like to be moved

 My flower arrangement from this month's session.

..... and what better to round off the week than a visit with my gardening group to a beekeeper's garden.


  1. Lovely pictures!

    Those alliums are spectacular - wish I could grow them like that.

  2. My parents lived up the road from Harlow Carr for years and I'm ashamed to say I've never been!

    (I just followed a link from Rosalind Adams's blog. Hello - nice to meet you.)

    1. You should treat yourself - and to tea and cake in Betty's Café afterwards!

  3. Such beautiful flowers! Love the beekeeper's garden.

    Thank you for replying to my comment on Frances Garrood's post. I love Yorkshire, it is second home to me ever since I fell in love with a true Yorkshire lad.

    How can I follow your blog? I can't seem to find the "follow this blog" button anywhere.

  4. Hi Librarian
    The Follow button is after all the labels on the sidebar.

  5. Hello.
    I love all kinds of flowers...must be the romantic in me! Lovely photos. Thanks for sharing.

    Congratulations on completing the A-Z Challenge! I'm just cruisin' by to say hello from the 2013 Post A-Z Road Trip.

  6. The peony is gorgeous - you must have been thrilled when it came out.
