Not my planned posting for today but after Saturday’s posting on the lure of a Garden Show I just had to share what lured me out into my garden this morning…
Monday morning blues… oh yes, I definitely have them alright 🙂
Oh… here’s a much shorter and shyer Meconopsis that I grew from seed. It took three years to flower but I do feel quite thrilled it has. This is its second year of flowering so it looks like it won’t get very tall.
The orange of this Geum really catches my now too – both in the morning and evening sunshine. Both plants won’t last much longer so every day is special with them. Taking my photos I see I have captured a double flower which is interesting to see.
I am checking my Wisteria for its first opening flowers daily at the moment so that also takes me out in the morning. Today’s going to be the day I do believe! I’ll have to keep it well watered now.
So what’s this below that caught my eye? A lonesome Clematis flower on a support near my Arbour… no idea of the variety. That was a surprise today.
Alliums are bursting out all over my sunny front garden but it appears I missed the start of the party in my back garden too! Ah… they’ll need a posting all on their own. I’ll update this later if my Wisteria does come into flower today.
It’s a two for one today… do come back later as I’ve some bird and wildlife stories for you tonight. Enjoy your day.
All photos above were taken in my garden on June 1st 2009.
