Life at № 42
The wisteria looks glorious this year. I’ve planted euphorbia characias wulfenii at the base- and also liatris spicata. I think the ton-sur-ton effect will be amusing. Elsewhere in the garden I’ve planted a couple of Mousmée hydrangeas. I’m trying to keep the pourpre/mauve theme started by the previous owners going. The purple prince lily bulbs have all come up, which is exciting. Can’t wait to see what a “lily tree” looks like in real life.
My favourite plant corner outside is also promising great things. It’s the wall across from the entrance door:
That’s where all the peonies live; and the purple glads, and agapanthus (large and peter pan varieties), and roses, and trumpet vine, and lilies- the planting is incredibly complex. A real spring/summer show. My challenge is to make the south side just as interesting. It won’t be easy.
