I like periwinkle (vinca major) and it grows well, even rampantly, outside at home. I’ve tried transplanting some to the plot a couple of times but without much success. However there’s a small bit tucked away by the log pile and teasels that has flowered at long last much to my delight.
The red valerian (centranthus ruber) in the stone feature looks like doing well again as it has lots of flower stems on it.
The dogwood (cornus) is looking like it’s going to be covered in white flowers before too long.
The horticultural society held a plant sale this morning which did better than expected and just about sold out. I didn’t buy anything as they didn’t have any cucumber plants, which were the only thing that I wanted. However I didn’t come home empty-handed as I was kindly given a couple.
Have a good week!
