Six on Saturday – Hannah and the Tulips

Storm Hannah came in overnight and though I first though the tulips had survived, they were a little the worse for wear so we decided to cut our losses and cut them for indoors. Thanks to the suggestion from Nancy of Spirit Lights The Way

2.  The Edible Garden

In fact, we have lots of edible bits in our garden including the veggie boxes and the herbs but this trough has herbs and edible flowers as well as salads right by the kitchen door. I have planted up all the little plug plants that we bought at a local nursery.  The tiles at the back are Victorian from a fireplace in the house I lived in when I was five years old. Mum collected them when the fire place was changed and I love them. They show various land based tasks like seed sowing and scything.

Beautiful rows

3. Clematis

We have three spots in the garden with Clematis Montana Elizabeth . This one is growing up an old tree stump near the back shed and the scent is gorgeous. We can smell it from the arbour which is just across the way.

4. Twin Tulips

Most of our Tulips are over but this pair recently turned up in the tubs that held the purple and white ones. It’s an oddity.

5.  The Geum  in the curved wall is bringing wonderful pops of colour where all the Spring bulbs are now finished.

Geum – Flames of Passion

6.   A treat

We treated ourselves to two fabulous plants the other day, two Scilla that are already quite startling in their beauty. I love the colour. They are in a bed where Agapanthus will appear later in the season.

Scilla – Caribbean Jewels

Pop over to The Propagator for others in the SoS challenge. They are from all over the world with fascinating insights into other gardens.
