Nine Colours Of My May Garden
There is so much growing.Its hard to know what to photograph.There are still more photos for me to share.The May garden is full of jewelled flowers.
I will watch Gardeners World soon on you view. They are coming from the Malvern Spring Flower Show.
I re potted my two types of Cabbages, Noelle and Wingedstadt.I planted the Presto Blue and White Petunias in two hanging baskets.I potted up the newest Petunias Blackberry Sour F1 with purple and lime green flowers.I hope the baskets will be contrasting but pretty to look at.
The only plants I am waiting for is the Night Phlox.They will join the Sweet Peas, Lilac Tree, Honeysuckle, and Nemesia Vanilla scent to fragrance the garden near to the Rose bench.
My Fryers Rose Scent Sation has finally grown some buds on the cut stems.It has me worried that all the Roses have leaves and it was just bare stems.I'm pleased to see the pink buds swelling along the stems and the base.It needs good growth of leaves to put energy into more root production.
In the Greenhouse there are lots of trays of Vegetable plants growing on.I have about four weeks to get them to the allotment before i go to New Zealand.I am gardening against the clock, and will leave Cat instructions for me three weeks away.
The May sunshine and showers have invigorated the garden.There is a real energy, and you can see developments every day just walking around and looking.
