It came via the Guardian's daily email news offering; more pix of highlights of the show are here.
This year I have my own garden, at the front, and on the way out or in often spend a few minutes just looking at the plants, thinking of nothing. Tiny and constrained as this oasis is, it gives me immense pleasure to see the plants settling in, growing, and flowering. The aim is to have "something nice" year round, and attract insects (beside a busy road!).
In the first of what I hope will become an annual series of photos, here is Garden136, May 2015 -
|Thyme in flower; mexican daisy looking very tiny; coralbells settling in; silene looking gorgeous; |
geum trying to root; parsley, rosemary, lavender doing well
|Geranium loving its new lease of life; phlox almost finished flowering; violas about to bloom;|
more lavender; a purple-leaved hebe; parsley setting seed;
ornamental grass ; camomile ... and zinnia seeds coming up
|Osmanthus filling in the hedge; deadnettle and cyclamen under the box hedge;|
more ornamental grass
The "flame" euphorbia, planted in the corner near the ivy, arrived as the tiniest thing, maybe an inch high - it had grown to six inches, but the stem has snapped - foxes??
