One of my fond memories of living in Aldeburgh in England was the beautiful hedge of yellow potentilla (in the cinquefeuille family) that defined the front garden. Yesterday in my field I discovered that we have a flower of the same name, but, a wild creeper, that is not a shrub. This can be considered a weed as it will spread, or a medicinal herb. You will see that bloom in due course in this project, no doubt. This particular flower though is from the shrubby variety and just brings back many good memories of my time there. The house is still there, but the hedge is gone. A Flower a Day #306  (NB while I make every effort to identify the flowers posted, I make no guarantee that the name is correct. It’s about the photograph, not the name.:-)

  1. I remember admiring these shrubs on my walks in my old neighborhood and miss seeing them in my current one. I’m sure they exist here too, and now, being alerted by Ellie, I will keep a watchful eye for their clusters of gold and take note. Thank you, Ellie, for the potent(illa) reminder.

    1. Oh I really hope you discover some of these old friends on your walks in your current neighbourhood! I’m glad I reminded you of them. Let me know if you do. 😀

  2. It is lovely Ellie. I can imagine how beautiful it would look in a complete hedge. Usually I just see potentillas in a single bush. So nice and bright and cheery for this dull rainy day. But can’t complain we do need the rain. Hope you have a lovely day hugs to you and Steve
