My Garden

My small suburban garden…

Drink Up Me Hearties, Yo Ho…

This Bank Holiday weekend has so far seen a fair amount of the wet stuff, with more forecast for the coming days. Despite this, I’ve still had to water a few of my planters as the wind has a tendency to dry things out almost instantly.

The lobelias appear to enjoy a good drink (don’t we all!!) and a few of them are starting to flower. Both the white and the red jasmine are playing host to hundreds of bees, which is always good to see, and the plants that self-seeded from the wild-flower mix I bought last spring are coming along nicely.

The bright orange Californian Poppies are the current starts of the show and there’s also some white alyssum in the tubs for a bit of contrast. Two of the 4 geraniums that survived the winter are doing well (the remaining two are looking very unwell at this point) and the begonias are getting stronger by the day.

Although the rain is good for the garden, and saves me having to use expensive tap water, it’d be nice to think that June will bring forth a bit more sunshine. I guess that time will tell…
