I am pretty sure that the above plant is Anemonella thalictroides which is one of my favorite plants ever (and that halfheartedly suffers along in my own garden). It is basically the combination of two other favorite plants. It has a flower resembling an Anemone, but foliage resembling a thalictrum. The reason I am not entirely sure that I have properly identified this plant, is because I have never seen such a large and robust patch!
An interesting and very unusual view of the Stilt Garden from the gazebo facing the long walk looking back over the wall.
This is a picture of the hedge we planted last week. The idea is to block the view of the field from this vantage point half way up the path so that it is suddenly revealed to you when you reach the top of the path.
This amazing plant, still hanging onto its fruit from last year, is a berberis. After doing some research I think it is Berberis jamesiana. It is amazing and the birds love it!
This is the before and after view of the Poppy Garden, where I have been working all week pruning hydrangeas, weeding, raking, digging out old roses and stinging nettle. Today we finally finished after days of work. It doesn't look as dramatic as it feels!!
