So far this spring we have had a good mix of warm sunny weather and enough rain to keep the plants happy. The garden is bursting with life and new flowers are opening each day. The climbing rose Mme Alfred Carriere is growing like crazy over the pergola by the summerhouse. She has only been in for a year but seems to be a vigorous girl!
The Nepeta ‘Walkers Low’ is looking abundant and overflowing in the front garden, some white fox-gloves have self-seeded nicely in amongst them, we haven’t had white ones in the garden before but they are very welcome.
I find that around this time of year that my mind is just filled with thoughts of plants and gardens, it is like having a horticultural screen-saver in my brain at all times – obsessed? – well maybe a little bit,
