There is a collision of spring and summer in the garden at the
moment to the joy of anyone who likes a “splash of colour”, and the despair of
the person who is trying to make a colour scheme that works without too much
last minute tweaking. Lovely aunt is enjoying it…but she is moving soon so will have to come and view when she comes over for coffee.

The last of the Narcissi are still clinging to the stems that bore
them like so much paper. The tulips are also over the parrot here the very
last. Most years the artists houses in Brighton’s Festival have a brilliant
display of tulips lined up for May Open Houses…they will have finished before
the first house inspector crosses the threshold, sorry art enthusiast.

In flower now are:

Thyme

Chives

Aquilegia

Roses (mostly hedging and climbers)

Hellebores

Erigeron ,the wall daisy. Many lost in the winter.

Forget-me –not

Viola cornuta

Rhodedendron

Peony

Geranium x6

Foxglove apricot

Bluebell

Bugle

Lilacx2

Euphorbiax2

Hemerocallis

Clematis x3

Iris x2

Pulmonaria

Candelabra primula ( had a hard winter)

Italian Arum

Solanum crispum

Scarlet Honeysuckle

Parrot Tulip

Petunia

Veronica trailing and gentianoides

Jacobs Ladder

Scarlet Geum+++

Delphinium

Thrift or Seapink

Perennial Cornflower

Blueberry

Love lies Bleeding

Tiarellax2

Solomon’s Seal

Vibernum x2

Omphaloides

Saxifragex23

Nigella

I could list the weeds too as they are getting on with it….but it’s
too depressing.
