Flower times and items that grew in could. A shelfie to share all the very best blooms that were being in the garden this late spring. From fragile poppies with tissue paper petals to challenging 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 coloured nasturtiums, vanilla scented Nemesia, autumn-sown snapdragons in apple blossom pink and a handful of rattling brizia to best it all off.
The expanding space we made last yr is whole of environmentally friendly leaves and new shoots, so substantially much more in bud waiting to open up and unfold, the roses are blooming on the arches and in the beds wildly now. Time enabling I will be again soon and my up coming publish will be a tour of the cottage back garden and greenhouse to see it now, what is growing, and examine it to previous yr.
But for now, these are the items that grew in May, all my favourites collected with each other in the window of the lean-to. The winds have so significantly been pretty variety and the blend of solar and showers has intended the lushness is off the scale as opposed to very last year’s cold but dry spring. To be likely into summertime with almost nothing parched is these kinds of a blessing. Now I have just obtained to preserve the slugs away from the dahlias and zinnias for the subsequent act. Wish me luck! x
