Summer Garden: Liriodendron, Linum and Linaria

blühende Liriodendron

In 2011 the first trees were planted in the pleasure garden art trail . In the center a Liriodendron tulipifera, blooming for the first time this year.

Linum usitatissimum 2012

In 2012 we sowed flax in places where later flower beds were to be. From the experience of growing Linum usitatissimum my artist's book Dew blue developed on dew retted heckled flax paper.

Helma Sanders-Brahms’ description of her visit of our flowering flax field here in Rhoden in the artist's book Blues.

Linaria purpurea blau zwischen Rose Bukavu und Frauenmantel

In the area of the former kitchen garden, low yellow snapdragon (Linaria vulgaris) has now settled at the foot of bladder campion (Silene vulgaris) and marguerites. The name Linaria is derived from the similarity of the leaves of the yellow-flowered true toadflax with those of flax (Linum). Narrow panicles of Linaria purpurea rise above dry-stone walls and lady's mantle.
