Gardening Fever


The photo is from Junes trip to Harlow Carr.A ruby red coloured Astrantia Major, like the one I planted yesterday.
I bought two lots of seed potatoes (King Edward, and Nadine) , two onion sets (Stuttgarter and Red Karmen), and some seeds for carrots, brussel sprouts, and Parsnips.
Also bought today three Coneflowers, three Cornflowers, a Blueberry bush, some Blue bulbs (Iris, Gladiolus, and Anemone De Caen). Fran gave me the Freesia Bulbs too.
I found a Frog ornament for £1 and some French Marigold seeds...
The excitement of a new challenge up at the Forgotten Plot made me buy the gardening stuff first, then food shopping afterwards. Cat is better and might go home tomorrow too from the hospital. A good end to my Birthday.

Ah, Astrantia....I just discovered them last summer and I'm in love with each and every one I see. I don't think I'd ever tire of them!

Your Astrantias are lovely. I always have wanted to plant some but never did. Seeing yours reminds me to put some on my list.
