Just some of the plants I couldn't remember the names of as I walked around the garden.

Eucryphia Lucida to the right of the first steps a photo of it in flower is on 

Eucryphia Nymansensis Nymansay


Apologies for the light aircraft  but no apology for the bird song.

Cecile Brunner rose not as I described it as Mademoiselle  Cecile Brunner 

The dwarf Box - Buxus sempervirens Suffruticosa  were all grown from cuttings from two plants over a period of three years. The other side of the garden were grown from the ordinary hedgeing box before I realised the difference also over about three years. Of 500 cuttings taken the first year of each variety of box plants I lost about three of each variety during the winter.

Mayor of Casterbridge  pink rose on a tripod next to the Sweet Juliet rose and between Sweet Juliet and Noble Anthony. 

Blush rambler grows in the pear tree.

Wadas Primrose is the clematis that grows up one Gleditsia tree.

Aviateur Bleriot is the  yellow rambler rose growing over the arch.

My garden is always in a state of flux, it is a working garden and never up to show piece standards, but gardening is for fun and probably reflects my personality. The video is amateur to say the least my daughter calls it Vlogging perhaps I should improve with practice.
