Open Gardens 3: Specimen plants

Looking round the gardens this year, I found I was attracted as much to individual specimen plants as to the overall views and shapes of the gardens. The little geranium above was really pretty... It's called 'Angel', I was told.

You can't beat the luminous blue of a delphinium....

Such pretty colours, shapes and textures in these leaves too.


  1. Nice photos, as usual jennyfreckles. Love the leaves in the third.

  2. I like that Angel very much! sweet colors!

  3. I like all of these Jenny, they remind me of summer.

  4. Love the blue of the delphinium.

  5. The gardens are wonderfully colorful at this time of year, aren't they? I have a plant like the one you feature in your third photo, but I don't remember what it is.
