Finsbury Park

I went to Naomi’s house after the Chelsea Flower Show press day. It was good to see a real, lived-in garden that is free of fancy hard landscaping and manicured lawns (and to drink a beer outside on an amazingly warm evening). The magenta of the rose, gladiolus and Geranium psilostemon looked great against the acid yellow of the euphorbia.

  1. I LOVE THAT GARDEN! There’s even the washing line, with pegs on. We have one strung from our walnut tree to the house, and when taking pix of the garden I try and remember to remove the pegs and not have the line showing, but why not? It’s part of life, isn’t it? And these are my favourite colour combinations … pinks, purples, magentas, against acid lime green (alchemilla mollis would do just as well, but euphorbia is great, too, simply for its colour.)

  2. It’s looking very different to when I saw it at the end of November. As Margaret says, it looks wonderful – even the washing line :)

  3. It looks lush. I hope she is well :)
