Four vigorous plants, growing together in a little, rock-edged garden without too much care (at a guess): a fern, Alchemilla mollis, Lysimachia punctata and Crocosmia.
Darwen’s moist climate has washed the door almost back to wood, while the window has been blocked in more than once.
It’s a happy eye that sees the beauty in semi-wild flowers around a weather-beaten door. I’d be sorry to go by and see it had been restored, although I’m sure that turquoise was someone’s pride and joy when it was newly painted.
Yellow loosestrife (Lysimachia punctata) will spread or escape, given half a chance, so can be found growing wild as often as cultivated in a garden, but how beautiful it is in season. The plants are sturdy, and upright with no need for staking, each stem packed with starry yellow flowers. The petals are held with flair, each graced by a little twist at the point.
Loosestrife is always in flower for me. Out of season, when I go past a patch, my mind adds in the yellow.
