My Suffragette Garden in the Rain

The garden is drinking up the very welcome rain today and everything is glistening. My Suffragette garden has white and purple blooms and an Ivy leaf that has fallen has purple and green with a white pebble or two nearby. together.

The Hebe is full of fluffy purple flowers.

Underplanting the Hebe are some tiny white Cyclamen and I noticed the flowers for the first time today.

For new readers, my Suffragette garden is planted in honour of my Great Granny who was imprisoned in Holloway for her actions in trying to get the vote for women. She was force-fed while in prison and in another branch of the family we have the Holloway Brooch presented to all those who were so treated.
