name that plant

tags: , , , , ,

What are these Flowers?On a Falmouth  street an elderly gentleman caught me gazing into his front garden, admiring the plants.

He came out and apologised that his wife, who maintained the garden, wasn’t available to give me a tour of the tiny garden and name specific plants.

Spotty dog and I then accompanied him on his walk down a steep hill  to the dentist.   On the walk he told us how his house was once a Quaker school and brief histories of several other houses on the street.

Cornish folk are extremely personable.

    It is ‘Cambridge Scarlet’! Possibly a distance relative of Scarlet Blue, and will soon be establishing itself in clumps in the Wendy House garden
