It’s once again the time of year when aquilegias earn their reputation as cottage garden favourites – and sometime show-garden stars.
After several busy weeks, we found an opportunity to catch up a little in the garden this weekend.
As well as the wonderful meadows of Camassia that I posted about yesterday, our recent visit to RHS Wisley was full of spring magic.
