When I'm not on my bike, you'll find me in my organic-ish garden in #Cumbria. Favourite plants? Wisteria, hellebores, paeonies, philadelphus...

Strange isn’t it. I have a purple bell vine (rhodochiton atrosanguineus) that is looking very washed out... more dirty pink bell vine 🤔😉 @sieveheadsarah

They're fabulous plants, I've had mine about 4yrs and it's still in a large pot that I sink into the flower bed each summer, I'm not brave enough to leave it out for the winter 🌞😂🌞
