I love arum lilies but sadly lack the wet conditions this stunner prefers

Maybe next year...I'll dig a bed in front of my outside tap because I'm forever overfilling my watering cans

What's eating my primrose petals??!!

Massive amount of mulching today, only got five and a half bags left, I started with 38

Planted area of part shade border with my Euphorbia purpurea x 3, Polemonium Bressingham Purple and Mexican Orange Blossom White Dazzler

Had to move a fern in the way

That's that border finished, have one small corner in the middle garden plus the area of border in my purple and white garden and apart from pots, raised beds and finishing touches...I'll be done

Gorgeous sunny day, too breezy for T-shirt but its only spring
