It’s been a long time since I have spontaneously gone into the garden and then ended up on a roll. Blame it on my ornamental grass, Festuca glauca ‘Elijah Blue’, if you will!
The grass lived in the forest garden until this morning. I bought it three years ago at an RHS garden show, as much as anything because I was determined to buy something at the end of it, having chosen the final day for that very reason.
Anyway, at that time, I did not realise I was inadvertently developing a forest garden, so I popped in the ground with other ornamentals, which are now also being transferred to the front garden.
It almost broke my heart to dig up one of the primroses which had happily appeared by the finishing off compost bin. It’s joined some of the cowslips my dad gave me a couple of years, which have multiplied quite a lot. (I thought at the time of their move that they were actually primroses, and I have since found out that the two are related.) But as I prefer primroses, the cowslips might be moving on again!
Not today, though…. Instead, I turned my attention to the glory-of-the-snow around the crab apple tree. Out they came and guess where they moved to?
