Garden May 2009
We had a nice weekend for working in the garden and even managed a few pictures. Raining this afternoon so I will make time to post a blog.
Firstly, a general shot across the garden then a clump of London Pride on a raised bed. It all seems to be pretty colourful this year. Then some of the individual plants that draw attention at this time.
Rhododendron delicatisimais a gorgious colour and also has a great scent. It has been in flower for a week or two now.
Like them or hate them the Cobra Lilies are one of our favourite groups of bulbs. This is Arisaema propinquium.
This is the time for the Himalayan Blue Poppy, in this case Meconopsis grandis. They like this mild weather with a steady rain. It is the type of weather they are used to in the Himalaya so they have evolved with downward facing flowers making them more difficult to photograph.
In between working in the garden we found time to start unpotting the crocus bulbs. I don’t know just how many pots we did but here are just a few of them.
Then, of course, the pots need washing straight away so that the bulbs can be replanted! We have started slightly earlier than usual this year because we will be away from home for a good while in June and we don’t want to get too far behind
