Duke’s Garden at Kew – Iris, Alliums, Geum and some florid peonies – and on to the Davies Alpine House. Continuing my constitutional around Kew Gardens


This last was labelled Paeonia suffruticosa, no more, and is magnificent. Loved as much as me by the iridescent beetle that was in an ecstasy of pollen in the centre of each blossom.
