New Plants, Lunch and An Acer

16 May

Garden centres opened again last Wednesday and the lovely Mr S went (safely masked)  today to find some of the plants I have been longing for. He found them all in one place! The Thymes in our herb wall have become very woody and leggy so I hoped to replace them. Mr S found the three varieties that I wanted! There are also Violas for the edible trough, Chives to replace those killed off over the winter, Sapphire Lobelia to trail down the pan-stand, a white Lavender for the steps  and a very dark Iris, Mr S’s favourite.

It was warm enough to have lunch outside. This is one of our Summer favourites.

For our Ruby Wedding Anniversary, our four bought us a beautiful Acer in a ruby coloured pot. It is at its best as the leaves are new and gorgeous. I love that Cornish Violets have self-seeded in the pot.

      He did and went again today and found a fabulous pale yellow, evergreen Azalea! I’ll show you later in the week when it is planted. 🙂

    Those Cornish violets seem to have self-seeded everywhere in my garden this year!
