Flower days and matters that grew in may. A shelfie to share all the finest blooms that were in the backyard this late spring. From fragile poppies with tissue paper petals to challenging pom poms of chive bouquets. 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 escalating room we established past yr is full of eco-friendly leaves and new shoots, so substantially more in bud waiting to open up and unfold, the roses are blooming on the arches and in the beds wildly now. Time permitting I will be back soon and my following publish will be a tour of the cottage back garden and greenhouse to see it now, what is developing, and look at it to past year.
But for right now, these are the things that grew in Could, all my favourites collected collectively in the window of the lean-to. The winds have so significantly been quite kind and the mix of solar and showers has meant the lushness is off the scale in contrast to previous year’s chilly but dry spring. To be likely into summer with nothing parched is these kinds of a blessing. Now I have just obtained to retain the slugs absent from the dahlias and zinnias for the upcoming act. Desire me luck! x
