This morning I made a quick visit to Mum to take her a few things (including a large bag of compost) and of course I took a few photos of her garden. Lots of things are doing well and there’s a good deal of colour about. This heuchera caught my eye, not surprisingly!
The retaining wall behind the greenhouse and raised beds is already looking good, with snow-in-summer spilling over and flowering already:
And the forget-me-nots looking lovely too:
The flowering cherry we bought last year has put on a couple of feet and has a good covering of blossom:
A clematis Montana “Elizabeth” has made itself at home and is covered in flowers:
And while a lot of Mum’s tulips have faded (as have mine) she has some slightly later ones which are so dark they’re almost black – I didn’t get any of these, and am slightly jealous!
In other news, I bought myself a little early birthday treat:
Pretty, isn’t it? They do a range with various different flowers, and I chose bluebells as they’re usually flowering around the time of my birthday.
