It’s Bank Holiday Sunday…

and all too typically it’s chilly and wet.

I’ve been enjoying my various narcissi since mid-March but they are now almost finished with these small, white multi-headed ones being among the last to flower.

The rose Pretty Lady is now in full leaf, has lots of buds forming and looks like flowering earlier than it used to.

The love-in-a-mist (nigella damescena) has such vivid green feathery foliage.

The hawthorn has got some, partly hidden, tiny white flower buds.

I’m hoping to sow some flower seeds during the coming week but it looks like it’s going to be rather blustery with some heavy rain at times.  I’m still trying to decide what to sow and where as part of the flower patch is now covered with self-sown flower seedlings.

Self-seeded flowers!

Happy gardening, and have a good week!

  1. Lovely update as always if it flowers you want to sow could you not just add more to the patch to add more color or was it vegetable

    We have a rainy day here too so I am trying to catch up with everyone’s blog posts that I have been too busy to read. It’s nice to have a ‘day off’ occasionally where rain stops play. I have a similar narcissus to yours that is still flowering but the rest of the daffs are now over for another year.

    Oh my — how green everything looks! Are you planning to dig up those self-sown flower seeds or wait for them to grow and be surprised?

    The rain woke me up this morning, it’s been pouring down all day so far, looks as though it’s in for the day. My daffodils are all finished now, I’ve planted the container grown ones in to the garden so hopefully, they’ll be back again next year. I like those small multi headed ones you’ve grown, do you know which variety they are?

      Jo it was a pretty wet day. The daffodils have done well this year. I don’t know what they are but will see if I do I do have a note somewhere. xx

    Maybe nature will decide what to plant and where, instead of you. It would give you a chance to sit back to watch and wait, as well as muse over your other plotting developments. xx

    The white narcissi are still gorgeous. I’ve been noticing rose buds here as well, and some hawthorn open already. Also lots of clematis today. Enjoy the bank holiday Flighty, let’s hope for some warmer weather soon. CJ xx

    It was quite grotty here but the sun is out today so there will be a little garden action. I hope you get the chance to do a little sowing this week x

    A most happy sight: self-seeding gearing up for pretty blooms!

    How wonderful to know that your Pretty Lady rose has many buds. It produces beautiful flowers and good to know it is on its way. Hope the weather is better now.

    • Flighty says:

      Glo it sure is, and does. It’s been very windy, with heavy rain at times, yesterday and today but looks like being better tomorrow onwards. xx
