We are on flood alert tonight. Mr P is building an arc in the garage :) Even the ducks are fed up. The sun shone for a while today and gave me an opportunity to take some photographs.
Dicentra 'alba' shines out from a shady corner in the woodland walk.
Drumstick primula will tolerate dappled shade, and the rabbits seem to leave them alone. I love the colour. Jacob's ladder (Polemonium yezoense 'Purple Red Strain') is one of my favourite cottage garden plants. It seems to have gone out of fashion, as I rarely see it in other gardens. The leaves are a lovely reddish purple and the violet flowers are large and very beautiful. It seeds freely, it has been in the garden for many years.....
Have a lovely evening.....time to go and check on that arc.
