Lupin Leaf, Ramsons and Bluebells

02 Apr

We went shopping today – for plants! I found a purple Vinca for the Suffragette garden and we bought a small and very charming tree.  I’ll show you when they are planted.  Raindrops had collected in the Lupin leaves at the garden centre.

Lovers’ Lane is awash with wild garlic both the Three Cornered Leek, Alium Triquetrum and Ramsons, Allium Ursinum.

Ramsons

The Bluebells are coming into flower too, like many other flowers, rather early in the season.

    Hi there
    A neighbour of mine is growing lupins and I noticed all the rain collected in the leaves today!

      Hooray! They are beautiful aren’t they? I sold another glass piece today, with a precious piece of your sea glass in it. I have put it on today’s blog as I couldn’t find a way to add a photo to a comment. 🙂

    Funnily we don’t seem to get ransoms down here. Plenty of the three cornered leeks though, including in my garden! Do you ever use them in cooking?

      I’ve always thought the Three Cornered Leek to fussy to pick but having found the Ransoms with their much wider leaves just down the lane, I shall. 🙂

    Your ramsons are further on than ours. And I hadn’t realised that the three-cornered leek was the same family. Obvious now I think about it! Lovely blog, a practice I also adopted some time ago but something I’ve kept apart from my own blog. Maybe I should reconsider 🙂
