Got off to a cracking start yesterday morning and tidied the plastic greenhouse plus surrounds by half nine or so. Managed to have a read in the sun prior to cutting the lawns and arrival of the rain preceded by a Prussian blue sky.
Your garden looks pleasant and peaceful. How long is your growing season?ReplyDelete
Here in SW Ontario we got into the high 20s today after a chilly start to May and everything is taking off. My apple tree is in full blossom, the hostas are unfurling, everything is finally well launched. One endures a long Canadian winter for such moments.
We are a little behind this year. Facebook memories usefully posts garden pictures of previous years to compare and contrast. Wind and rain lashing the Duchy this morning.. Apple trees blossoming currently. I could do with proper winters rather than rain autumn to spring.Delete

Some great characters associated with Alpines, plant hunting and early mountaineering such as Reginald Farrar. Read his very short books biography https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Reginald_FarrerReplyDelete
I recall reading a splendid book , possibly called “There be dragons” about early mountaineers attempting to climb the Matterhorn. Well worth a read. I have no head for heights so amazed what folk do now let alone then in tackity boots and tweeds.Delete

Good man! The reading looks very interesting! You are blessed in Scotland in having that famed Alpine nursery, Edrom of Eyemouth. May your saxifrages, erdodium, and gentians bloom!ReplyDelete
Thanks Al! There is also Kevock Nurseries near Lasswade. The book is enjoyable and accessible, worth a read. A wee storm lashing the Duchy here so no deckchairs today.ReplyDelete
