The Gamble Garden
I meant to post something about my visit to the Gamble Garden a two weeks ago, but I never got around to it. I didn't feel a connection to this place. I couldn't relate. Do mostly kids work here? Maybe so.
There are a few interesting specimens, like this giant fennel.
It was mainly the old roses that captured my attention. Which is sad to say, because the roses were dormant.
This one's called 'Stanwell Perpetual' and it says 1838 on the accession tag. Do you think that means the cultivar was introduced in 1838, or that this bush was planted in 1838?
I didn't get the name of this one, but it looks old too.
Do you recognize this beast? It's 'Cecile Brunner' (1981).
And this is 'Graham Thomas' (1983).
I'm intrigued by the green Eschscholtzia with...some kind of kale? How will it look when the poppies bloom orange?
