May 2015

PHEW…Now, as nature takes over and weaves her spring magic entirely without my intervention I am beginning to feel less stressed about lack of progress in the garden.

The ‘wild meadow’ mound is studded with buttercups, bluebells and ox-eye daisies and its tall grasses a soft, fresh green, shimmering hypnotically with the breeze. Next year I will add primroses, cowslips and poppies.

There are daily unexpected delights like the discovery of tiny creamy-yellow buds of Rosa banksiae ‘Lutea’ a climbing rose planted last May and not expected to flower in its first season. I first saw this rose many years ago, smothering the walls of a beautiful old house in Somerset and have wanted my own ever since.

Now, with a bare, south-facing fence I have the perfect place for one. Adding new plants is one of the joys of making any garden – one which I am certainly relishing.
