Flowering now, a jolly splendid combination of Paeonia ‘Mutabilis Plena’ & Allium giganteum.

Wow! Incredible to see the garden at this stage. I watched all those peonies emerge this spring and now they are all ablaze!

Love the tumbling effect. Beautiful.

Hello Bertie,

Best, Michael

Wonderful! Is this one of the side paths around the pillar garden?

Our Allium 'Purple Sensation' are just opening up now. Looking forward to peonies.

Thank you for your visit to WMG and you nice comment!

Bertie,
I am so sorry I missed you. I asked for you at the entrance and they said that none of the gardeners were in today. I was tall American guy with gary hair!

Maybe you will visit Helen in VT and i will meet you in her garden. I had a wonderful day. I also went to Kiftsgate and I had dinner at Mary and Gordon Hayward's garden.

PS Everything looked beautiful!

Michael, disappointed to have missed you! I was in the garden after 2pm, shame I didn’t bump into you. Glad you enjoyed yourself though, and I will definitely see you when I’m over visiting Helen!

Bertie
