ack again for garden view the second, hosted by the Patient Gardener. The daffodils are over now, I dead headed the last few on Wednesday, so it's all about the bluebells with support from the forget-me-nots, and some tulips trying to steal the show. Working from the top of the garden down:
bove - veggie patch is coming to life. First set of peas started flowering in the last couple of days. Carrots, parsnips, radish and broad beans have all finally germinated properly. In fruit corner (below) I think we're gonna sort out this twiggy mess at the back here and think about raspberries. Is it too late to plant raspberries? We'll find out I guess...
bove: The winter honeysuckle has leafed out and is casting a huge shadow. Gonna have to sort that out a bit me thinks, but the bluebells and forget-me-nots are making a very pretty seen closer to the house. This corner in the bottom right is supposed to be turning into a pretend wild flower meadow, but it's doing nothing right now... hope it cheers up soon. Below: I forgot to take a picture here last time, probably because there was nothing to see. The peony is up now though, and the tulips are trying to brighten it up (they are very pretty). Very obviously there's a lot of space though, so we're going put some runner beans etc climbing up the fence this month - Alys Fowler style.
his corner is filling out now, which is very exciting - so much to come from here!! In the opposite corner (below) I had to show this just for comedy. The bluebells immediately under the compost heap are HUGE - almost two feet long and not stopped gaining height yet. Under those, the overall view from the backdoor looking out. To my eyes the view is very blue at the moment, but for some reason all those tiny specks loose their impact in a photo.
