August at Veddw

Someone, thinking of visiting, recently asked me what is in flower at Veddw in August.

So, my apologies to all those of you who would like words here, and to all those who are spring focused and can’t bear to imagine August right now: here are a selection of August photos. I cheated though – they’re not all of flowers…

Roll on summer! Gorgeous images, I particularly love that marching line of crocosmia echoing the hedges. Is your umbellifer angelica? Sara x

Thanks – the crocosmia look good from below too, against the pink of the seat at the top of the hill. I love scarlet and wish there were more of it in perennials.Not sure what the umbellifer is – think if it were angelica I’d remember.

Hard to bear the flowers of August when it’s still snowing in Boston! Nevertheless, a trip to Veddw in August is on THE LIST.

AnneWareham March 27, 2015 at 10:51 pm

Yes, I guess you’ve had more than eough of that white stuff!

Hi Anne
Lovely photos, really lovely photos. As for that umbellifer – it’s the one I always feel a bit worried about because of the purple stems; I think it may be the poisonous one, though god knows, I’m not about to take a bite out of it. But it’s because I’ve never really pinned down in my own mind which one it is that we’re supposed to be really careful of though I understand that it has blotchy purple stems rather than uniform ones. Is it heraclium spondylium or something else I’m thinking of? Please someone help.

Ps I really don’t think it’s angelica which is much greener in my memory. But therein lies the problem. Don’t go soaking it in sugar and laying it on your sponge cakes.

AnneWareham March 28, 2015 at 11:19 am

Sponge cakes? I should be so lucky – no, no danger there. Un-named plants proliferate in this garden, much to the professional photographer’s disgust…
