An unusual "chocolate" colour. One to identify . . .
I think this is Adelaide Addison.
The palest pink and a deeper shade.
This is a really stunning black stellata form.
This is the form I started with here. I have these- doubles and trebles - in light pink, white, dark pink, lilacy-pink etc.
This is a lilac-blue hybrid I bought somewhere last year - and it flowered on and on until late July.
Purple stellata petal - isn't this a gorgeous colour?
Predominantly paler pink in the Aquilegias this year, but I love this darker shade.
Pink Norah Barlow.
I think this is possibly Red Hobbit, or is it Cardinal?
A white Norah Barlow.
One of my fancies. I think this could be Aquilegia formosa but don't know its 'pet' name.
Above and below. A very old rose - name unknown - which came from a neighbour, who in turn was given it as a cutting (very prolific and easy to take). It came from Golden Grove, the other side of the Towy Valley, and once an important local landowner's house. I am still trying to identify it. It just flowers the once, but is COVERED in blooms, and has the most divine scent too.
