I loved these stately hollyhocks, standing like sentinels in gravel. I presume they’ve self seeded there. They reminded me of some verbascums planted in a courtyard in the Temple by Andrea Brunsendorf, head gardener at the Inner Temple. I saw them back in June after the Inner Temple Dog Show, but in all the excitement I forgot to share them with you.

  1. They look great like. I think of them as stuffed in a long border like at Newby Hall, but they work well on their own.
