Suddenly the garden has awoken, and even some of the roses are joining the party.
One of my absolute favourites – Rosa ‘Pat Austin’ – had a number of blousy blooms, which I just couldn’t resist.
To these I added two Geums (no I can’t explain why I need two orange Geums, don’t judge me!)
The first is ‘Totally Tangerine’ which I added to the Bronze Bed last year. It really is the colour of a Jaffa orange and therefore a bit harsh for Pat, also situated in the same bed.
The second one is ‘Mai Tai,’ a softer, peachier orange and therefore a much better companion for Pat but, illogically, is situated in a pot on the other side of the garden! At least I’ve been able to bring them together in a vase.
To all this orange, I added a bit of lime in the form of Euphorbia Polychroma.
It really was lovely cutting and plonking a few zingy blooms in the sunshine. Thanks for hosting this lovely meme Cathy!
