A lovely leisurely wander round your garden again Owdboggy, especially lingering by the pretty restful pool. I do like the tall Berberis - do you clip it to get that shape?

The area in Pic 7 has really come on since you started it - I couldn't imagine what you were planning to do with it at first. The pinks are very late flowering aren't they- have they flowered like that all year, and if so what variety are they please? Mine finished ages ago.

Enjoyed the wander Ob, thanks. Penultimate PIC looks like a Pasque flower . . . surely not?! (Writing on my tablet in New Zealand - it's insisting on some words in capitals, sorry).

I think the 'Berberis' is actually a Cotinus of a purple hue.
The Dianthus is a self seeded one probably from Dainty Dame. It is re-flowering as are many others too.
That is indeed a Pulsatilla, but I doubt if the flower will open fully now.

Oh, I can see it now, so it is. Still love it though.

Enjoyed the wonderful tour. Thanks for posting those. What is the erodium?

The Erodium is one of a few self seeded hybrid ones. I did have a number of named ones, but they are short lived here and all I have now are seeded offspring of them.
