Thank you MzG. Like so many lovely plants, it looks it's best for a fairly short time, but even now the foliage is very attractive. Much of my garden is more about foliage and the form of plants than about the flowers, simply because the flowers are transient.
As for knowing what I'm doing, I've been making this garden since 1989 and it's not finished yet! But seriously, I read about gardening, I talk to more experienced people, I go to gardens and I make loads of mistakes and I get frustrated when things don't turn out the way I'd like them to. The great thing is, there is always another gardening season to look forward to and next year I might get it right! Also, I don't usually photograph the messy bits or the mistakes, unless it's to get a hand with them.
