This week nothing much has happened in the garden. The blossom is fully out on the trees and starting to fall now, the rainy, windy week smattered with the odd ray of sunshine thankfully didn't wipe them out completely before the bees have their chance with them.
More Aquilegia have shown their beautiful faces, more purple and a delicate pink with ruffled centres.
I've planted out some ready potted flowers to fill in some gaps, a few Lobelia and Marigolds. I flung some Calendula seeds I saved from last year onto a couple of sparse beds and they have sprouted, very slowly but they are there. I look forward every year to their sunshine yellow and blazing orange daisy-like blooms which go on and on all "summer".
All my trees in containers that I planted from seed a 2-3 years ago have all come to life again. I really need to find somewhere to plant them this year, the plan was to create a memory garden, we tried once a few years ago and the local rabbits stripped the foliage bare in days!
Outside of the garden, the fields are golden yellow, bursting with crops, interspersed with green fields, the stuff of oil paintings, they make the landscape so very pretty. I found these Bluebells hidden amongst the nettles when I jumped out of the car to snap the scenery for another post.
And look who's come up and so fast..... the Forget-Me-Not seeds I had sown indoors last week to plant at TC's nursery in memory of Matilda Mae, so teeny, so delicate, hopefully they will be as gorgeous as the ones in a corner of our garden that come up year after year.
