A BUNCH OF FLOWERS FROM DORSET (2)

Here’s a second bunch of flowers from a Dorset garden in June. Those few who kindly sniffed the first bunch may have wondered why none was labelled. That’s because, for most of them (apart from the obvious ones) I have no idea of the names. Or did once, but have forgotten them. And for familiar ones, I feel putting “Pink Rose” isn’t much help if you really want to know if it’s a Rosaflora Grandiloquens “Dame Edna Everage” or not. If I name 2 or 3 but not the rest, it still looks a bit… wrong. So it’s just ‘flars’, as Eliza Doolittle might say.Summer garden flowers (Dorset) 16Summer garden flowers (Dorset) 17Summer garden flowers (Dorset) 18Summer garden flowers (Dorset) 19Summer garden flowers (Dorset) 20Summer garden flowers (Dorset) 21Summer garden flowers (Dorset) 22Summer garden flowers (Dorset) 23Summer garden flowers (Dorset) 24Summer garden flowers (Dorset) 25Summer garden flowers (Dorset) 27Summer garden flowers (Dorset) 28Summer garden flowers (Dorset) 29
