Here is some cool stuff in my garden right now. Cool stuff – I know, I’m getting too technical.
The main photo is a purple
Azalea (don’t know the type) Rhododendron PJM that I salvaged from the overgrown mess that was my front garden three year’s ago. I planted it with plenty of space around it and pruned it. I’m so glad I did. Its colour is amazing at this time of year.
Below is the view from my greenhouse right now. When I’m busy sowing seeds with my heater on and my cup of tea in hand I can glance over and see the Tulips popping up and beyond that the Black currant bush just coming into leaf.
This is a silly photo I took through the mirror in my greenhouse looking back at the plants that I saved from last year’s summer window boxes. You can just see the Purple Heart next to the white tags. And yes there is a mirror in my greenhouse.
Brunnera Jack Frost just about getting going. It will flower for months! Pulmonaria Blue Ensign. You don’t see them for sale at many nurseries. It’s normally the pink one with speckled leaves. That blue…
This is one of two Camellias that I have that are forming an arch over an iron gateway. They are the first to flower in the Winter with this Christmassy red. The hummingbirds love them.
The Forsythia in the front garden is huge and when it blooms it really goes for it. I have planted one on the opposite side of the garden to balance it out someday. But at this moment in time it’s about one foot high. Be thankful for those mature shrubs people. They take forever to grow big!
