My garden in March
I love to get out into the garden whenever the sun is shining, but I must admit I am rather a fair weather friend to my plants. It’s rare to see me gardening before the clocks change – I’m just not hardy enough!
Photographing my garden flowers
Even when the weather isn’t very good, I do like to record my favourite flowers. Here are some photos of my plants.
Already photographed in my garden in February are (clockwise from top left): akebia, cyclamen, hellebore, and clematis cirrhosa.
Today in the garden
My husband offered to take over looking after the vegetable patch, so I was out there rescuing some of the self-seeded goodies that had arrived in there – namely woolly verbascum, echium, borage, chamomile, lemon balm, hardy geranium and cerinthe.
In the picture you can see our purple and white sprouting broccoli which we started eating last week.
Planting viola flowers for craft
I absolutely love violas, their happy little faces always make me smile! I use them as often as I can in my craft projects, whether the flowers are pressed, crystallised or dried in various ways. I planted a few violas today, but there will be lots more to follow I’m sure!
Novelty item found in garden!
When tidying up the garden, I cut down my cardoon, only to find this old flower head with seedlings growing inside it!
Here’s to some more Sunny Sundays 🙂
