However on Friday, after the big birthday bash for the 125th Birthday Party of our Local Kenilworth Horticultural Society, someone had left bags of wild plums. Most of the weekend was taken up making preserves!
Here is my contribution, cut after the visit was over, and some of these blooms Cathy noticed on her trip down the garden. I cut one of each from the left hand side of the garden..but two of the graceful Lysimachia Clethroides, also known as Gooseneck Loosestrife
I did not think that I had that much in flower, but this proves that a snip here and a snip there and suddenly there are 13 different plant materials to choose from
