The planet is our home; we need to be more responsible. Here's what I do.
Now it’s a bit late in the year to start showcasing flowers but I like the sound of this theme. Carol over at May Dreams Gardens has a monthly link of blooming flowers in your garden.
I’ve been drawn to It for two reasons. First because is like to document what’s going on in my garden month but month and secondly I’ve grown increasingly curious about the contrast between my garden and others around the globe.
When it’s spring here it might be a totally different season somewhere else. But suffice to say there are blooms all over the world.
The buddlia in the from garden is making our bees and butterflies very welcome.
Whilst up at the allotment the clematis that I thought had died has flowers again now. The dry spell may have been a distraction but she’s doing well.
The echinacea is also okay but not as spectacular as last year. I may need to figure out what she is lacking.
Now this is a flower curiosity. I cut these sunflowers to save seed. The following day the blacker bloom delivered pollen to the top of the flower. I’ve never noticed that before.
There are more blooms in the garden but the ferocious rain of the last couple of days has impacted on the display. So my last contribution is this artichoke. It’s going to take a while before it’s as impressive as the neighbours Beaty featured beneath but in glad these artichokes from last year are developing. I also probably will eat them rather than let them blossom.
The bloom meme is intended for 15th each month so here goes! A little late.
