High summer at Colesbourne Park

Another hot, dry, windy day here, so I thought I'd post a couple of pictures of the Colesbourne Park garden before the drought really begins to damage the summer display.


The herbaceous border: the pink flowers are Malva moschata, the yellow daisies Anthemis tinctoria. In the background 'Rambling Rector' covers the pergola.


The bog garden - something of a misnomer as most of this is a very dry bank, planted with big, bold drought tolerant perennials. True moisture-lovers, such as the Primula florindae hybrids and Zantedeschia) are at the water's edge.

  1. How wonderful. It is so lovely to see the garden in is full summer splendour. It looks dramatically different to how it was when I visited in February.

    I really hope the hot weather doesn't get the better of it.

    RO :o)
