CLEMATIS AND LITTLE GEMS
After last week's weather, which was mixed to say the least, it was good to be busy in the garden this week. And busy I certainly was
except for the afternoon I sloped off to the garden centre and went shopping instead.
While the garden is looking a little tidier, it's still not looking very floriferous, so I'm opening with this photo of the front garden, because the horses were posing for me so nicely. (Actually I think they are hoping someone will come by with something nice to eat.)
The other reason for including this photo it that it is the home to this week's number 1.
1. Bergenia Schneekristall
2 Early Spring border
3. Little Gems
4. 'Fun' with Clematis
5. Strawberries under Glass (or why planting 10 strawberry plants took me all day)
6 Daffodil JumbleWhen you take over an old garden, if you are lucky, you will inherit some lovely mature plants. You will also, almost certainly inherit the Daffodil Jumble. At some point in the past a previous owner will have bought one of those giant nets of mixed Daffs and liberally sprinkled them around to take you by surprise.
Others, when you declare your intention of digging them up, will be described as 'cheerful' by your spouse.
