The garden still looks lush but the flowers and colour are being rather slow in showing their faces - partly due to that cold. cold spring and partly that a lot of the flowering perennials I only planted a few weeks ago. I felt I needed to redress the balance a little so I have been out purchasing some bedding plants for a the front garden and a couple of hanging baskets. I was also irresistably drawn to an Astrantia Major that I had seen on Gardener's World and a couple of Verbena Buenos Aires (I think like Bonariensis) which I just had to buy. Next week I might show you where I put them all! In the meantime here are some pictures of the few flowers that we do have and my haul from the plant nursery - oh and our first harvest (bar the Rhubarb)
|There are pink daisys.Alca Milla Mollis, a beautiful Granny's bonnet, some emerging lily flowers and a Clematis on the brink.|
|Our (almost) first harvest this year.|
|What we bought - the petunias look more purple in real life and Little Miss Sunshine chose the pink geranium that doesn't really go with the others!|
Linking up with Mammasaurus - do pop over and check the other gardens out - it's soo worth it...
