It’s been so good to be able to get out into the garden the past couple of days even for just an hour at a time. I am a fair weather gardener but really miss being able to potter about in winter. I’ve planted some new primulas (pictures below) and discovered by reading the label (something I only really do with unfamiliar plants) that they are scented. It’s a shame they are so low down really! Just as I had finished that task my snowdrops arrived in the post so they too have been planted in small groups. Today I have finally sowed my sweetpeas (a pink and white vintage variety dating back to the 1730s) in my electric propagator, a little late I guess but better late than never.
Here are a few pictures of what’s currently flowering in my garden.
Sorry about the thumb in this picture but it’s the only way I could get the flower to look at me due to its ‘downward facing habit’. It’s a hellebore by the way
Hi Wendy, this is Philip Grundey, formerly of Bramhall Baptist Church. Those flowers look great! Just wanted to say hi. I know we used to see each other on New year’s eve but now my parents have sold their place in Bramhall I’m very much London based. Hope you are well. God bless.
