It's not my incompetent fault that the next photo is of an un-named rose cultivar - I bought it very cheaply as a weedy looking specimen. It now sprawls over the three huge (previously very cheap and tiny and bought at the same time as the rose) lavenders of unknown cultivar.The weather gods have a sense of humour when it comes to the blooms of the peony. These huge tissue paper balls of petals are so delicate, but seemingly every year are weighed down to the ground by the weight of the weather gods' spite. Below is a peony inherited with the garden, presumably Peony officinalis Rubra Plena
And finally, to avoid the suggestion that I care only about flowering plants, below is a representative of the bryophytes - some moss, with fruiting body (sporophyte? - it's a while since I studied botany). The lawn is mossy, but not qute that mossy - the photo is from a weekend walk in North Wales. Close up, as gorgeous as any flower!
* I'm rubbish at writing down what plants I buy, and tend to try to leave labels inconspicuously on the plant. However, SomeBeans is of the label removing garden variety (and quite right too - I should be more organised & keep a journal, so it's entirely my own fault) and so I have a range of unidentified plants in the garden. This probably tells me that I shouldn't consider a career as a curator of a botanical collection.
