Quick cuppa tour: Early May
Hello m' early Mays,
Back outside the Granny's Bonnets (Aquilegia 'Nora Barlow') are just beginning to pop out,
just like all the grannies around Falmouth town, now they've had their two jabs -
The Californian Poppies and Calendulas are back (Eschscolzia california) -
It is my humble opinion that one can never have enough sea thrift -
The Pansies pretended to die, but have dramatically returned.
Shame they are a little late for the Oscars.
The Tree Echium (Echium pininana) has more flowers on it with each day -
The fat bumble bees are loving it.
I tend to take most garden photos in the mornings,
but this one shows the last rays of light catching the top of the Pieris 'Red Robin' ....
...before the sun dips down behind the hill, leaving just the old church illuminated -
When the kids and I were off on one of our mystery picnic tours last weekend,
we spotted this delightful plant stall and honesty box, (lost near Helston, we think) -
We picked out camomile, unnamed cactus, hens & chicks and echiveria ...
all for 50 p each
What a Bobby Dazzler!
Today I had my Oxford - AstraZeneca vaccine at Stithians showground. I thought it only right and proper to pop to nearby Burncoose nursery, where I picked up this Aeonium Zwarktop.
I hope to get six plants out of this one, so I've already pulled one stem off and stuck it in a propagation pot. That would brings the price of each plant down to an amazing ...you've guessed it...50p!
By not allowing me to have a pony or swimming pool, ol' glass eyed Mumrah trained me well.
Following my jab, Monsieur thinks I am going to act like normal and 'give it the large' this weekend.
I have advised him that I think I will be feeling a little unwell on Sunday morning, and will therefore be needing a lie in and cup of tea bringing to me in bed.
Hopefully before that, I will manage a much needed catch up on blog reading.
Hope you are well.
What are you up to this weekend?
Thank you for visiting!
