Engine Room much despises gardeners. Personally I really enjoy some aspects of the pastime, the main one being planting something and watching it burgeon in season.
As Glynsky Towers is a little ‘different’, old (like me), and varied in aspect and design I have tried to populate the garden with a generous sprinkling of ‘specialist’ type plants and have 3 favourites which I impatiently wait to see flower.
Of these, the most unusual is Carpenteria from California – and this year its really going for it!
Yes, it is horribly untidy but, wow, saucer size flowers and all, but against the orange/red climbing rose – Eeeehagh.
Yours, diablog, in bloom
