It’s that time of the week again; time to celebrate the end of the working week (for most) and put our feet up and relax… I’m playing catch-up once more from last weekend, but since most days when I get home all I want to do is sleep, I haven’t had the motivation to post mid-week.
There’s plenty to catch up on at the moment and more to come over the weekend, no doubt.
Lavender ‘Hidcote’ is flourishing this year; I’ve had to replace one but am pleased with the amount of blooms on this one, and the Black Lilyturf’s tiny little blooms are out. It’s a shame they’re so small.
Gertrude Jekyll has begun to open some more blooms; I’m still yet to put up some wire for her to climb up… When the weather is nice I’m more interested in enjoying every minute I can than working… But I really do need to get this job done – perhaps on my week off.
Here’s also an update on the unknown Umbel… its blooms are just beginning to open now.
It’s daisy time here; with Rudbekias and Heleniums in bloom! A self-confessed hater of yellow and orange, but these do look excellent and so bright and much welcome in the garden. This Rudbekia is a seedling that survived winter; I believe it’s supposed to be an annual, but hey we had a very mild winter and it was blooming in December!
