    Great garden memories. Enjoyed this review.

  6. Some lovely moments there and nice combinations. I love the photo of ‘Emperor of China’ – used to grow that in a previous life and it is such a wonderful and old variety. It is a straggly old thing but it flowers so late and is so lovely when the leaves change to crimson too – a good pairing with the sedum 🙂
