Late Spring Catchup

I thought I would do a quick ‘Catch-up’ with my garden.

Since early spring loads of plants have sprung into life. A few have been slow movers but are getting there. We have had a couple of plants pull back from the edge… And a couple have been lost. Such is life.

I’m going to post a few pics about how they are doing now. If you look back in my Flickr albums you will see how they were only a month or so ago. I never get tired of seeing that amazing change happen!

My Aquilegia in great shape. Should get some flowers out of it soon.

My flower bed. I added in some rescued purple Polyanthus and the Tulips and Alliums are pushing their flower spikes.

Centaurea Altopurpurea doing well, the mysterious plant pushing up with quite a few heads and... Oh look... Some Cleavers... Yeah... They went after I took the pic!

Daffies in full show, Eryngium doing well and the Juniper still doing very little. Oh well.

That’s it really. I’m very happy with how things are moving. When summer kicks in I hope to get some bedding plants and get them going to fill out the open area.
