Shade Border III (end of July)
A collection of shade-loving plants, with Hydrangeas, Thalictrum and Hosta flowering. In the foreground the oxidized iron basin (one of two), the rust giving the water its peculiar colour. The basins are there for purely aesthetic reasons, so no frogs or water lilies, but in winter birds and foxes use them as watering places.
