In the garden

Such a lot is happening in the garden at the moment.  We had a few very hot days, which meant watering time, which gives me a chance to look a bit more closely at what’s going on with various plants.

I was delighted to see all these baby fronds on one of the tree fernsthe New Guinea impatiens is floweringand I did marvel at the spiky red spines on the leaves – insect deterrent?the rogue rose is flowering againand there are so many blooms on the hydrangea from newly “hatched”to beginning to colourto pick-able blooms, which I did in abundance and included the remaining few sweet peas to enjoy insideAs I wandered down the front path the other day I could hear buzzing and was stunned to see the blue berry ash in blossom these delicate bells are so tiny and pretty and a great attraction to bees.  They were a bit hard to catch on camera as they flitted swiftly from flower to flower, but I persisted for you Ain’t Mother Nature grand?!

  2. Glad you’re well again, Ms M.
    Very envious of your garden. It’s all pebbles and cactus in the Inner City.
    My Mother used to say that bees were particularly attracted to purple flowers. Not sure if that’s right, or not, but it’s a different perspective, I guess.

    I love the new fronds on your tree fern – I would love one for our garden, but they are really expensive to buy over here!
