There are still a few bulbs clinging on, particularly Tulip ‘Queen of the Night’ (above) and below with ‘Merry go round’
just a few Tulip ‘Jimmy’ and Narcissus ‘Yazz’
Narcissus ‘Goose Green’
and in the Swing Beds, the Tulips ‘Menton’ and ‘Mistress’.
New bulbs emerging include these Gladiolus byzantinus, just coming into bloom in the Lavender Beds but rather more shy elsewhere,
as well as these Nectoscordum siculum that I’ve said for two years I was going to pull out.
I’ve already got a good showing of Pelargoniums, both outside and in the greenhouse
and a couple of Clematis. I love this Montana, which has found its way through the (sadly now empty) chicken hut
but I’m really not convinced about Clematis ‘Josephine’. What was I thinking?
Meanwhile, thinking of climbers, my Wisteria is already going over.
and has showered its purple petals on the succulents
Also in containers the Matthiola incana has gone mad in the troughs and smells absolutely divine.
Surviving through the winter and already looking better than last year, Cerinthe major purpurescens (such a favourite)
and Daucus carota ‘Black Knight’, grown from seed last year.
And to finish, the first of the roses, Rosa ‘Snow Goose’ on the pergola.
