is summer here???
Wow after a balmy week with temperatures well into late 70s here in sunny Mansfield, i did have to ask myself “is summer here?”. Today is more like May, with clouds and a little promise on sun peeking through from time to time, but before you tell me to write this on a weather forum id have better digress………
Clematis(nelly moser) is in full bloom now and trying to protect it from the full sun has been a challenge to say the least.
All tulips have given me a display to be proud of, and well worth the effort in planting them last autumn, being a lazy gardener, i am going to leave them in…..results same time next year anybody??
My woodland anenomes have really come on well despite them getting more sun than i had hoped for, which hasnt done them any harm, bluebells are establishing well too and hope that next year they will be thriving.
I inherited some free Hostas from Mother, and they are doing well and my Monarda is cautiously peeking around the garden in the 10 different places i have planted the 10 different species…..
Thanks once again to all those who take the time to reply and sens such encouraging emails too, i do try and reply but sometimes i cannot think of anything constructive to say, so apologies.
Hope to blog before i travel to Sunny NEC and this years GW live.
