Late spring at Ty Isaf is a time of profligacy in the herbaceous borders. The terrible winter saw many casualties in the garden, including the demise of a twenty foot embothrium, one of a pair that blazed here to great effect each spring. We lost a ghost gum and an acer and every clump of pampas grass. But as though to make up for all that has been killed, the flowering of the garden has been spectacular, with everything putting on the most ravishing show for us. Here are just a few images to give a flavour of how things are.
And last but not least, a farewell to our lost embothrium, seen here in its final, spectacular flowering last Spring.
