A stroll around the garden

I took a stroll around my very neglected garden and found some lovely things to share. This red one above was peeping over the fence from next door.


The next two are veiws of the Philadelphus... orange blossom... and the smell is gorgeous.



I don't know what this following shrub is called , but it is really good value, from the early leaves which start off as bronze then change to this colour as it flowers.


This rose has an unusual colour



Meet Madame Hardy... she has a gorgeous scent but only flowers once... I love the quartered shape and the green eye.


I don't know where this delicate little beauty came from she just appeared!

Lovely-----so lush!
Our garden is parched and scorched .No rain to speak of for nearly 2 months in our bit of the Lake District!

Your shrub is Spirea----looks like Goldflame variety?
Ros

Thanks Rosalind.... glad you enjoyed it. We seem to keep missing the worst of the rain also, though we are getting more than you. Thanks for reminding me of the shrub's name.... it just wouldn't come back to me.

Neglected? I don't think so. I can smell those beautiful roses from here D..

The purple plant you can't name is a Spirea I think.
