The garden is moving so quickly at the moment that I simply cannot keep up with the photos!
I don’t know what to post
What to feature
It’s such a tough choice when I’m racking up the playing with light series, but then something else pops up and I need to photograph that too.
Not that I’m lamenting the fact it’s such a hardship to have too many photos 🙂
So I’ve come to the decision to include photos from the past two weeks, sit back and enjoy the garden porn.
First we’ll begin with the ‘poached egg’ Narcissi I seem to have acquired this spring without remembering or realising I’d bought them in autumn. I’m calling them poached egg, because this is how Ronnie describes them and I have to agree. Then, just as I’d commented on her blog about buying some myself, I noticed them opening in my garden too!
They are in fact ‘Bridal Crown’ Narcissi, they’re only small and have a strong perfume for such a tiny size. I planted them in various places around the garden but they look at their best in a pot I made up with all leftover bulbs… this one originally had Crocus Tommasinianus and Cream Beauty, and now have Bridal Crown and Minnow Narcissus and Muscari. The pot needless to say, is rammed full with bulbs; but oh so worth it.
Don’t let the following photos fool you; trust me there aren’t many blooms on the cherry this year, although it’s better than nothing! I’ve decided that in my next garden, assuming it’s large enough; the first thing I’ll buy will be one of the Plum blossoms. Perhaps even, I’ll end up with a garden that already has one!
So, for now I’ll make do with these blossoms on the Autumn Cherry, perhaps I’ll also plant one of these? The possibilities are endless 😉
Fuji Cherry Kojo No Mai is almost finished blooming, however I’ve noticed the second one hasn’t yet started blooming and have half wondered whether something is wrong as it doesn’t normally bloom so long after the first.
I’d neglected the Snake’s Head Fritillaries so far on the blog. They’re almost over now, perhaps this is a sign I’m falling out of love with them??? Perhaps if I had amazing drifts of them like Pauline then I’d still be in love?
And finally I’ll leave you with these:
You know what’s coming over the next few weeks…
