delphinium fasciation

Posted: 09/06/2015 at 07:01

Ah-ha Got it now.  Certainly makes for an impressive flower spike ....beautiful.  But in answer to your question...none like that here yet, although we are still a few weeks away from flowering here, I can only see single buds forming.

Morning Lesley, Morning Dove  Will the GC get a little look in after the food heroes have been awarded Dove

Thanks for the lovely comments about my iris - she certainly has pulled out all the stops this year.  And also for the exam wishes - yesterdays went well, i think.  Big one this pm for Chicklet, if anyone has any spare fingers to cross at about 2pm

Its that time of year when the morning amble round the garden reveals a new bud open every day ......loving it

Looking great Pdoc and Joybell.  Love the red rose Pdoc

Joy, the delphinium is a gorgeous shade of pink - is that one from seed?  if so, what a lovely surprise

Ok - i am at the GC in my lunch hour (getting my car washed, so that Panda has a clean chariot for Sunday, to match her snazzy new "do") - and have not been tempted by anything. Better check my temperature - must be sickening for something

Have a lovely week Dove - looks like it will be a sunny one

Welcome Kitty  My littlest Chicklet has the dreaded Maths exam this morning too ....wonder whether it is too late to mention pizzas (Better not risk it).  Chicklet has her first A level this morning too....its gonna be a busy week.  But this is the final push....and soon they will be able to enjoy the summer

In the meantime, the garden is blooming ....very pleased with my Olympus iris....which I will share with you as an exuberant start to the week

Morning all - glorious here too, and finally that wind has died down.  Off to meet up with sisters at my Dads - think the aim was to help him get rid of some of the junk that is slowly creeping over his living space, but don't fancy our chances much.

Will take him some tomato plants, so maybe I will have a go at a similar exercise in his GH.

Abbey House gardens were wonderful yesterday's a quick taster
