Astrantia – mini sculptures

I just love these little flowers!  They make a stunning show, the colours and shades are so beautiful and the combination of leaves and flowers is beautiful.  To have a second show at this time of year is a real bonus too.



Bargain buys…

Went to the local garden centre for compost and horticultural grit.  Whilst there noticed that they had reduced some perennial plants as they were ‘past their best’.  I hope to grow more of my Astrantia from seed but I found two new ones at half price plus a beautiful cranesbill or geranium so am really pleased.  The Geranium is flowering and I think that they Astrantias will do again.

I just love this photo!
