Dark Matter

Today things seemed to have taken a turn in the garden.

New leaves are unfurling everywhere and the ground is erupting with the promise of summer abundance.

Always the first peony to flower here and so welcome.

            Fritillaria Imperialis.

Always have to watch for lily Beetle.

        Epimedium Warleyense

 A lovely spring ground cover, with leaves tinged purple/red.

            Euphorbia Amygdaloides ‘Purpurea’

Not to everyone’s liking as it can spread, but the spring colour is stunning.

         Saxifraga Fortunei’Rubrifolia’

  Glossy, always healthy, green leaves with a deep maroon underside. An impressive plant all through to autumn.

         Acer….now unknown as I cut the original down and this is the graft that grows. I like it much better.

          A seedling Auricula not a good specimen, but I will keep it all the same.

I always get such a buzz from seeing all the new growth in the spring, it’s almost worth going through the winter for it….
