Flowers are great – adding colour to the garden and encouraging bees. They also fill me with joy, because at last something is going on while I wait for the food production to kick in.
A month or so ago, I noticed a flower I didn’t recognise. Now, there is another.
Is it hyacinth? If so, I don’t remember planting any in the flagship hugel bed and I swear there were none there before. But I could be wrong….
Flowers I did plant are tulip and anemone. The latter have in fact been around for a few days but the tulip was a present for my return home last night.
Finally, the daffodils round the apple tree have flowered. I thought I had made a mistake in the depth I should plant them to, so had wondered if they would be a success. The colour is different from what I had expected but I don’t care – it is so nice to see them!
And being bulbs, these flowers will leave space for other plants, once they have finished. No bushes with nothing but leaves to water throughout the summer. Just bulbs in the ground waiting for next year 🙂
