There was plenty of rain last week, including all day Friday, so I’ve not done much plotting and the forecast is much the same for most of the coming week.
With the daffodils and narcissi now finished, and the perennial cornflowers and poached egg plants just starting to flower, it’s foliage that is of interest at the moment.
Some of the plants, such as the oriental poppy, that normally would have died back over the winter didn’t thanks to the mild weather so have got off to a good start.
I’ve let this self-seeded common fennel grow as it’s in a much better place than the original one, which I’ve now dug up.
I’ve a poor sense of smell but this is one exception with it’s strong aniseed scent.
The lavenders did well last year and attracted plenty of butterflies, and will hopefully do the same again.
What has pleased me is the hawthorn blossoming for the first time. There aren’t a lot of flowers and most are partly hidden by the leaves.
Have a good week!
