I sowed a packet of the small grass, stipa tenuissima at the time and it provided me with plants that are still going strong. It's well behaved and gives movement to the garden, waving gently in the slightest breeze. Yesterday the evening sun shone through the fronds making them look especially lovely.
The garden is in full summer mode.
Lots of colour!
The foxgloves are going over and the hollyhocks taking their place. They are all grown from a packet of white seed, not that you would know as they come in a variety of pastel shades!
It's St Swithin's Day, gloriously sunny- no sign of rain. It wasn't like this fifty-two years ago on our wedding day! I'm going to put on a summer dress and then we'll saunter out for a celebratory lunch.
Happy Anniversary, Rosemary! And Himself, of course. 52 years is a long time together. Hope you had a lovely lunch!ReplyDelete
Thank you, Pip. Lunch was delicious!Delete
Everything you do is beautiful!ReplyDelete
Happy Anniversary, Rosemary. We celebrated our 52nd last month. Actually, we didn’t really celebrate as I had forgotten until My RetiredMan gave me a very sweet card. I sort of felt guilty but then I thought that after 50 years, I should be given grace.
A beautiful day and we feel ourselves to be very lucky, we are happy and relatively healthy with a caring family of whom we are so proud.Delete
Mega brownie points to your man for remembering a card!
How utterly beautiful.ReplyDelete
Happy Anniversary, as well. We're heading toward #47. Can't quite believe it.
I know, 47 and 52, those numbers don't seem real!Delete
Hope you had a happy wedding anniversary. Your garden looks gorgeous, I love the grasses in the mild summer light. Can't believe that this is possible with just seeds … must give it a try by myself.ReplyDelete
The stipa seem easy to propagate from seed. They also seed from the parent plant but are shallow rooted and so no problem to pull up.Delete
Happy Anniversary! It is my parents' wedding anniversary today (their 54th), but we all met for a Sunday lunch so that we could all be there, even O.K. who lives 150 km away.ReplyDelete
Your garden is so beautiful! I have a thing for grasses, so I like that part especially.
How nice for all the family to be together to celebrate your parents' anniversary - the same day as ours!Delete
