These two plants grow with almost no care in the dry shelter of a spruce tree in the front Welcome Garden. They don't exactly go with my new colour scheme (understatement! they couldn't clash any more than they already do!), but they are tough, suit the conditions, and don't bloom for too long. And they are so cheery in spring! So, at least for now, they stay.
Editing the garden is a constant struggle. It is hard to edit out plants that "don't go" especially if they are doing well! Plus, there are time and budget issues. I'm sure many of you will understand! I have vowed that at least whenever I add new plants, they must go with the new scheme. That's the best I can do.
