Blooms at Sissinghurst

Morina longifolia, spiky almost succulent looking leaves contrast with these marshmallow tinged flowers
The incredibly photogenic Osteopspernum ‘Whirligig’

Anemone x hybrida ‘Whirlwind’, seen flowering in the White Garden

Aster x frikartii ‘Monch’ being enjoyed by a Gatekeeper butterfly

Rosa ‘Golden Wings’

I’m somewhat swamped by college assignments at the minute so apologies for the intermittent posting.

Oh, to be there now! It's been 95 degrees every day in Atlanta with no rain; how appealing a cool English morning sounds, particularly with blooms like these!

The Morina is new to me. By looking at the doorway with the metal gate in the back of that picture, I am guessing that it is in the rose garden?? A good complement for later bloom, if that is the case. I am curious now...

Thanks for the splendid pics!

The Morina is new to be as well. It is lovely. I was going to pop up to Hidcote to have a look, but just realised it is at Sissinghurst.
Your photos are wonderful.

I haven't been to Sissinhurst in years - lucky you!
Beautiful photos of the plants there.
I didn't know you had a blog...saw it advertised in the Hidcote newsletter. :)

Julie yes that is the Rose Garden!

Rosemary we do have Morina planted in the Rose Walk but it has finished flowering now, come and see it next year!

Lovely. That purple one is gorgeous. No worries about 'intermittent posting'....I think we are all a little busy now. The reality that our 2011 gardening days are going to be coming to an end is keeping me outside more than at the computer!

Good luck with your studies.
