Pulmonaria 'Blue Ensign'


Pulmonaria 'Blue Ensign' (Pulmonaria)

The most intense blue Pulmonaria that I have.

Lovely, I do believe the blue changes, depending on the soil.....saw this at the GC on Sunday and the blue was almost navy!!

I moved mine last autum and its only just poking its leaves through the ground......

This one doesn't normally have any pinky buds - I'll wait awhile and see what colour the rest of the flowers are. I think it may be the camera again - it is a really deep blue.

Alice - mine was like that last week - it suddenly put on a spurt!

As you might guess, most of mine are barely poking through yet - the exception being 'Sissinghurst White' which may flower quite soon.

24 Mar, 2010

 

mine are not flowering yet either, but looking forward to them now Ive seen yours!

Huh! Wagger - just showing off because my 'S. White' vanished!

I thhhiiinnnkkk there may be another one over at the other side of the garden, there's one white flower open. I do hope it's 'S. White'! I could well have planted one last year...senior moments again. :-(((

Perhaps badgers like pulmonaries too, Spritz.

Nope - you sure know when they've been calling!

I counted the tulips I planted originally this afternoon - and they left 5 out of 5 dozen! The greed of them! Grrrrrrrrrr.........

At least you've got the better of them in this war - or is it just the battle you've won?

It really depends if they decide to tunnel under the fence further along. That might take a while, I suppose. OH can extend the electric fence further along if that happens.

If they're intelligent badgers, they could move about 30 yards to the right and shove their way through or under the hedge...I do know that badgers keep to a route, so they may not do that. .....I hope!

If they were really intelligent badgers they would know you won't give up and they'd move on to a neighbour - or a farmer.

Where they live, our lovely farmer neighbour could do without them! They cause damage on the farm as well - they really are strong animals.

I hope he's not a dairy farmer in the middle of that eternal TB debate, I really feel for farmers in that situation. Isn't it about time science came up with the equivalent of the BCG vaccination for cattle?

He does occasionally have cows, but normally steers and sheep. He showed me the paperwork - every animal has to have a passport, and DEFRA follow it up frequently, so it has to be kept up to date. He works so hard for not-a-lot. His tractor goes past with its lights on at all times of the day and into the late evening.

When it's in your blood you just get on and do it, I suppose. They get a pretty raw deal these days.

24 Mar, 2010

 

He used to work nights as well - at a Yoghurt 'factory' a few miles away - but his wife found a job before he killed himself. Unbelievable! Yes, it is in his blood.
