Are you familiar with dock pudding, and can you make it from this kind of bistort?

under the peonies is a hardy Geranium, there are many in the border but it looks like G. cinereum.

regards

Richard.

Re: the cornflower, it might be Centaurea cyanus but I’m guessing it’s Centaurea montana, the perennial cornflower. And Paul, the camera is a Canon PowerShot A80 – still doing well considering it’s about three years old.

I think the spiky blue flower is a cornflower, but I may be mistaken. Check this: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Image:CentaureaCyanus-bloem-kl.jpg

I’ll be back!

Would love to know what it is when you find out.

Hope to see you for Leeds Castle.
