Flower days and matters that grew in may possibly. A shelfie to share all the ideal blooms that have been in the backyard this late spring. From fragile poppies with tissue paper petals to tricky pom poms of chive flowers. 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 colored nasturtiums, vanilla scented Nemesia, autumn-sown snapdragons in apple blossom pink and a handful of rattling brizia to leading it all off.

The escalating house we designed very last 12 months is whole of inexperienced leaves and new shoots, so much additional in bud ready to open and unfold, the roses are blooming on the arches and in the beds wildly now. Time permitting I will be again quickly and my future post will be a tour of the cottage garden and greenhouse to see it now, what is developing, and evaluate it to last 12 months.

But for right now, these are the items that grew in May, all my favourites gathered together in the window of the lean-to. The winds have so significantly been quite type and the mix of sun and showers has intended the lushness is off the scale when compared to previous year’s cold but dry spring. To be going into summer season with absolutely nothing parched is these a blessing. Now I have just received to retain the slugs absent from the dahlias and zinnias for the future act. Want me luck! x
