May has been an excellent gardening month – mostly warm, sunny days with some decent bits of rain at night. Perfection. Nighttime temperatures had been low, but this changed over the last week. The plants responded with rampant growth and flowers. The dominant colour is now blue – oh and red, orange, purple, green, yellow..hmm.
Bulb activity is continuing through into the summer with gladiolus, iris and alliums.
Grasses are really starting to come into their own now.
The wall-trained cotoneaster is looking wonderful in flower – we will need somebody to come and prune it soon.
We are enjoying the view that was revealed by removing the massive bay tree, killed by the winter cold. Thank you Kate; you speak excellent chainsaw.
Somebody said there was a garden show on somewhere, I think I will give that a miss and hang out here instead.
