Blues, Pinks and Whites
Edited: Thanks for all your lovely comments. The beauty of blogging is that I can be selective in what I show! The wisteria is a wishy washy white and I only have three blooms on it (although they still give off a heady scent). It was here when I moved in 14 years ago and has never had much to show in the way of blooms. The lily-of-the-valley was already here too. It grows north facing next to the garage. It has never been fed and I regularly pick the blooms when they come through. I guess the wisteria needs careful pruning in order to flower well and I think it depends on the variety as to how well they do. The lily-of-the-valley thrives on neglect. As for the choisya (Mexican orange) it too has a heady scent but it is so large it is in danger of taking over the garden!
