I am a creature of habit. I adore apple blossom and will always take as many photos of the apple trees in bloom as possible.
I wanted to remember this combination of the deep pink blossom and the purple/pink Lunaria flowers. You can just see them blurry at the back of the above photo. I grew them from seed last year hoping to have armfuls for cutting but only about four plants grew away well so I decided to leave the stems on the flowers and hope the self seed a little.
Gav did a great job with all the Tulips in pots. We have had a succession of flowers for weeks now.
The Clematis montana gearing up for a great display once again.
The view back to the house complete with pooch and washing line!
A tapestry of greens and a little purple. Salad and flowers sat on the table by the greenhouse.
Had to take a photo of the stem of this plant. It’s a teasel and I grew them from seed last year. You can see that the leaves on each side are joined together so at the base of the plant a reservoir is formed.
Here it is from above. You can see the reflection of the water down there in the bowl formed by the leaves. I am curious as to why this plant does it. Might have to look that up.
More apple trees. Liked the sun on the bark of the little trunk and the box hedge.
And finally, not a plant but a baking himself silly dog.
That is one of his fav spots and he lays there till he can’t breathe for panting and staggers to his water bowl to rehydrate. Crazy!
