Reminiscences of 2011: the cottage garden

Jogoo and the crocus lawn

Viola, unnamed cultivar from Broughton, Peeblesshire

Ferula sp. from Turkey: an introduction made by Jim Archibald, perhaps the most interesting 'new' plant to flower in the garden this year.

Geranium 'Nimbus'

Geranium 'Nimbus', Euphorbia 'Excalibur' and Buphthalmum 'Dora'

Allium sphaerocephalumHyssopus officinalis, Sedum 'Red Cauli'

Begonia 'Ember Glow' with Solenostemon latifolius, Oxalis, etc, in pots by the door.
Up the garden path, October

Philip, the free-living Lady Amherst's Pheasant


  1. Beautiful pics. Love Philip the free-living Lady Amherst's Pheasant!

  2. H Viola cephalonica? (as in the picture "Viola, unnamed cultivar from Broughton, Peeblesshire")

    Is it?! I;m trying to get to see this flower (call it more of a quest!) as it is only found on the top of Mt Ainos, Kefalonia in Greece.

    Is it possible to get this Viola anywhere else? I thought not but am I wrong??
