I don't know if the plantings in St James's Park are always as spectacular as they were this August (may be something to do with state functions...) but I was astonished at the late-summer colour a week or so back. It is not enhanced!!
I particularly like the Mina lobata (syn.Ipomoea versicolour) growing up the post - particularly the inspired combination with a dark-coloured version of Black eyed Susan. I must give it a try next year if I can find a space....
Small Garden Story
Over some 15 + years, I have been photographing the evolution of my small (85 x 15 foot) garden and it seems a waste not to put these records into some sort of context. Beginning here in April 2010 this Blog is intended to both act as a diary and to share past and present successes (and some failures), pleasures and disappointments with fellow garden-lovers. In due course, I intend to fill in some of the background and early days but that will have to wait until the winter months!
