A closer look .
We have a tendency to leave various plants in pots along the edge of the pond.
A friend gave us some Agapanthus which we put into a terracotta pot and then on a trip to the garden centre found some more which have been planted into terracotta pots and placed with our gift ones around the sundial in the flower garden.
We love these plants , they can be very hard to get to flower but always worth the effort.

Looking back into the damp garden with the Ligularia in the background and purple Astibile in the foreground next to the oak leafed Hydrangea.
The path in the raised garden to the sitting area is full and rich with white Campion, purple Phlox and Buddleia.
The arch to the side , that leads to the path to the back gate.
The flowers overspill the borders to hide the path back to the Lych Gate from the shaded seating area at the very back of the garden.
