This morning I cut a bouquet of tulip, quince, apple blossom, heuchera and twisted willow, that I called Scarlet. A recent guest here, (Hi Mandy) wrote a poem about the cat on the scarlet counterpane, so the colour was on my mind. A friend of mine bought it, and it’s on the way to Twickenham.
I’ve not got much twisted willow left, so once this bouquet was sold I had to remove the offer from the fromeblooms website, but there’ll be more for tomorrow.
After the daily bouquet, the seedlings huddle.
More peas please. The peas sown a few weeks ago are now in larger pots, with copper tape to protect from slugs. Fingers crossed we get to eat more peas than the pests do. In a casual nod to succession sowing, I’ve popped a few more pea seeds into these pots.
While picking up shopping, I bought this Lidl pot of summer blooms. I’ve split them, and hope to avoid the looming pun.
There was a heavy shower of hail and rain, but then the sun came out again, and I took a shot of one of my favourite things.
