Flower times and issues that grew in may possibly. A shelfie to share all the greatest blooms that ended up in the yard this late spring. From fragile poppies with tissue paper petals to difficult pom poms of chive flowers. Bladder campion on wiry stems and sweetly scented sweet peas, there is calendula in abundance and an explosion of sweet rocket, arcs of campanula and trails of custard colored nasturtiums, vanilla scented Nemesia, autumn-sown snapdragons in apple blossom pink and a handful of rattling brizia to leading it all off.
The rising area we designed very last calendar year is whole of inexperienced leaves and new shoots, so significantly far more in bud ready to open up and unfold, the roses are blooming on the arches and in the beds wildly now. Time letting I will be back before long and my up coming post will be a tour of the cottage garden and greenhouse to see it now, what is rising, and compare it to very last yr.
But for today, these are the matters that grew in May perhaps, all my favourites gathered alongside one another in the window of the lean-to. The winds have so far been quite kind and the combine of sun and showers has intended the lushness is off the scale compared to last year’s cold but dry spring. To be going into summer time with very little parched is such a blessing. Now I have just acquired to retain the slugs absent from the dahlias and zinnias for the up coming act. Desire me luck! x
