The Other Woman

 
I had my suspicions about Mr TG and another woman.
The signs were all there....disappearing off outside, unexplained receipts, a wry smile when he returned, a sense of happiness & a skip in his step. 
 
 
The floosie in question?
Mrs J. Bradshaw (Geum) 
 
 
She's a flaming red, semi-double flowering beauty' he gushed.
'Hmmmm'...said I....'she's flamin' everywhere!'
Not content with one Mrs J.Bradshaw we now have several.
Deep is Mr TGs passion for his new love.
At least that's what I thought....No sooner had ol' 'Bradders' wormed her way into my husbands heart another more up-market wench appeared in the shape of Lady Stratheden (Geum)
 
 
Now she is a posh bird, even has the RHS Award of Garden Merit
(I have a red 25 meter swimming badge...Woop! Woop! But alas they don't compare apparently)
Again, not content with one Lady, we now have several around the Tidy Garden flaunting her wares to all n' sundry.

So where does that leave Geum Borisii?
 
 
More of a Plain Jane, more to my liking. I have approved of this relationship. Smaller & far less blousy than the other 2 harlots, Borisii provides a subtle flash of sweet, peppery orange here n' there amongst the usual garden colours.

Now where has he disappeared to...?
 
 
Caught him!
Hugging Mrs J.Bradshaw.

Oh, I just love this post, Jane! It's charming and so entertaining ... you made me LOL (literally). Love the photos of the two harlots and the more classy "Plain Jane" too! Yep, looks like you should definitely keep an eye on Mr. TG!

I love the red of Mrs Bradshaw too (although we're just good friends) - it beckons you from any spot in the garden. But mine is in too much shade now and I don't have anywhere to move her to. It's kind of cute that Mr TG is even dressing to match the lady in question, but I'm sure it's just a harmless summer flirtation. After all, she'll look pretty dull come winter, won't she?

I have the same geums in my garden. :o) I look forward to their cheerful faces every spring. The other day my husband asked when I planted the 'new' clump of yellow flowers. When I asked him to be more specific he pointed to a clump of heliopsis I'd added to the garden three years ago. :o)

Oh gosh I have to get some of those Geums, they're gorgeous.
