Half an acre Verdun. Yes I do it all myself but if there is anything too much for me one of my four sons will see to it, like a fallen elder tree I had in the last windstorm we had. Like Margery Fish I aim to have something flowering in the garden every day of the year! But at this time of the year there is something new in flower to see every morning until in May the whole place is ablaze with colour. The pear blossom is out already and the apple blossom about to break.
Flumpy the lovely cream flowers are one of my ground cover plants, a yellow dead nettle, common name Yellow Archangel. Not only does it have lovely flowers but its leaves too are very pretty - spreads like mad so only for large gardens but its flowers come out with the bluebells.
