After one of the sunniest (if not warmest) Aprils on record, May has turned out to be cold and damp.
Hey ho every thing is growing away and starting to flower.
I am rather proud of this osteospermum, my nephews first ever cutting last year, is now a rather handsome plant
The changes in the garden from the beginning of the month and its end are rather marked
The window boxes have changed and the wall flowers have evidentially finished.
new window displays, dahlias planted and the roses are taking off.
Out back, things are starting to look lovely.
big changes here to. This is the main bed before our trip to Spain.
And when we got home.
Foxglove, Allium and the Aquilegia from Colina rd all looking fab.
Last year we grew Nicotiana Mutabalis from seed. At one point we didn't think we would get them through the winter but they are coming into flower and look marvellous.
Each of the many little flowers in the spray open white and turn a deeper and deeper pink.
California poppy, sweet peas and Holly hock all doing well.
As our ever increasing collection of pots.
With more 'babies' to come.
Our hand crafted planter is full,
The Apples have set,
and we now at last have a garden worth sitting in.
June is about to burst out all over,
So hopefully it should warm up a bit and the sun will shine.
Till next time then my lovelies.
