May, May, May, my favourite month, so much so, I choose to get married in it, and could never miss it in the garden.
The primula were gorgeous this year,
the cowslips, primula veris, yellow,
and the denticulatas.
Second year for the ‘Golden Spirit’ smokebush, the colour is a bit more intense this year now that it is in more sun (due to a diseased tree coming down).
Can you tell I love chartreuse?
‘Reingold’ thuja, euphorbia and variegated lily of the valley.
The ‘Purple Sensation’ alliums are doing well this year,
these are all self sown behind the house. I shall have to dig them up and move them to the Lime Walk.
Two very gorgeous hostas that I bought last summer, so this is my first year seeing them come up in the spring, and they are gorgeous,
and “London Fog”.
Spanish bluebells with euphorbia.
More colour combos I love,
brown and blue, my favourite viola,
and chocolate and silver.
And the spirea hedge, planted along the street was just starting to flower. Can’t wait for those shrubs to meet!
