My word, what a wonderful transformation you've made of that garden! What are those beautiful white bells in pic 27? And you have gorgeous Auriculas too- never knew there were so many lovely ones.I just have the old fashioned original dark red ones.
Its good to see that your garden has the (to me) necessary addition of a little tabby cat to supervise it all.

Well its not possible to mention everything that should be mentioned is it - but mustn't omit the Magnolia - wow!

A lovely collection you have there :) I too have one of the plants you have but I don’t remember planting it so I haven’t a clue to it’s name it is number 52 yellow and pink flower, do you know at all?

Stera - I think that's weigela middendorffiana

Cariad - and my guess for that one is lewisia

wonderful Owd and I am so glad you didn't give up on your auriculas. I remember how upset/despondent you were last year when you found vine weevil chomping away. Beautiful collection and so many other lovely shady ladies in there too. A lovely garden.

Weigela middendorffianum is yellow, the photo washed out some of the colour.
The pink and yellow in 52 is a species tulip. Not sure which one, but fairly commonly sold.
I planted all the auriculas out on the garden to live or die as they chose.
The other primulas in there are P. sieboldii.
Three cats by the way.

Your had work is paying off Owd, Beautiful transformation with so many wonderful plantings. Love your primulas and your Araucaria Araucana.

Really chuffed with the Auricula in the tenth from the end image. I grew that from seed.

Lovely blog, Owd. Your garden is a shady beauty. I'm envious of the primroses and auriculas, some gorgeous colours there.

Thank you for the ID

Sadly the 2 big Rhododendrons in pic 11 by the bungalow had gone. they had so many scale insects that they had to be cut down to the ground.
