Some photos from the Floral Guernsey open garden yesterday afternoon at Les Fontenelles. The rose garden, the vegetable garden and part of the wild flower meadow. A magical place. #Guernsey #LoveGuernsey #Gsy #GuernseyLife #PlantHeritage #PlantHeritageGuernsey #Plants #Flowers

Nigella or Love-in-a-Mist has self-seeded in a relatively shady spot. I love the flowers and the seed pods, so although it is an annual, it is always in our garden. #Guernsey #LoveGuernsey #Gsy #GuernseyLife #PlantHeritage #PlantHeritageGuernsey #Plants #Flowers #loveinamist #nigelladamascena

These Alliums are in the Les Cotils Peace Garden. If you look carefully you can see that the underside of the wooden staging has been boarded in and looks fine. #Guernsey #LoveGuernsey #Gsy #GuernseyLife #PlantHeritage #PlantHeritageGuernsey #Plants #Flowers #allium
