Here are is long awaited Narcissus Thalia -
and Tulip Ronaldo - both are in pots, and sadly have done less and less well each year. This will be their last I fear.
the Fritillaria meleagris or Snakeshead Fritillary is a real treat.
and new this year, Anemone De Caen
So bright and strong; pure joy on a dull day.
Well there you have the stars of the month. Now lets see how the rest of the cast are getting on
Our window boxes are planted
Wallflowers are in bloom - if a little disappointing
and excitingly the sole surviving Hollyhock seems to be throwing up a flower shoot.
self sown Virginia Stock are still flowering their little hearts out.
Out the back the pear is looking fab and full of blossom.
and everything else is getting on with the business of growing
The Fuchsias that were in pots last year have been planted in the border, and their cuttings are in the pots for this.
the very first of the Aquilegias is looking fab. We will probably have to wait till next month for the rest.
To close here is another newbie bought in at the great expense of £1.25, Diascia. As you may know we are mainly pinks and blues with a little yellow thrown in, so orange is quite an adventure.
And a great cause for celebration here at 'Delargo Towers' is our Cymbidium, in flower for the very first time in after 18 years
roll on May
