Snow 2020

I woke up to a little snow here today. I wasn’t expecting it even though it was forecast. Anyone who has followed me for any length of time will know I only like looking at snow, not driving in it and fortunately I don’t have anywhere to go today. I do love seeing the garden in the snow so here’s a few pictures

Tulips

These are the tulips I have planted this year in pots/troughs with wallflowers that I grew from seed and pansies not grown from seed.

I like to try different tulips each year and like them in pots because in the ground apart from the fact they are likely to rot with clay soil and a lot of rain it means I don’t end up digging up them up when I’ve forgotten where they are.

Here is a finished trough

Wildflower seed experiment update

For anyone following me for a while you will know that I sowed some wildflower seeds in a trough at the beginning of the season (blog can be found here: https://wendyswonderlandgarden.wordpress.com/2020/04/26/wildflower-seed-experiment/ ) and I wanted to give you an update. I haven’t seen any bees on them but they are growing well and are pretty. Here are the pictures
