Happy Boxing Day to one and all! I do hope you managed to enjoy Xmas day with family or friends. Our gardening club WhatsApp group posted pics of what was in flower in their gardens yesterday and these were some of mine.
Primroses are beginning to appear under the beech hedges and the shady shrubs. They look so fragile but are actually as tough as old boots.
I love this little Erysimum and have got loads of cuttings to spread it throughout the garden next year.
These wild alliums are a real nuisance. I stupidly allowed one or two to go seed many years ago and simply cannot eradicate them now. They are easy to lever out with the bulbil attached but there are hundreds every year!
Finally, I am pleased with my winter pots by the front door this year. They add a little bit of colour and cheer on dark days and remind me of better days to come.
And still they keep on coming. Ain’t Nature wonderful. 👍
Indeed it is! Whatever the weather, come rain or shine, the garden never sleeps. Plants, like people, have evolved to exploit the prevailing conditions.
Happy Boxing Day!
