I’ve decided to try  to learn a few Latin names for the flowers, plants and trees in my garden.

3. Today’s flower is known as Sedum, Autumn Joy. It truly is a delight in the autumn with it’s cheery red flower clusters.

Sedum – Hylotelephium spectabile










2. Today’s flower is Borage  – a plant the bees absolutely love.

Borage – Borago officinalis


  1. I’m starting off with the Cornflower, the flower that reminds my Mum of her childhood garden.
