Gardening Season?

“The gardening season officially begins on January 1st, and ends on December 31.”
–  Marie Huston

This Astrantia major was in my first ever garden, and was one of my favourites. I love the delicate colours and the fabulous form of these flowers, with their decorative bracts. They love damp ground in semi-shade, flower through June and July, and the insects love them…

Looking at this photo I can almost smell summer!
