• Spring Fast Forward

    4th May 2011In The GardenStephanie Donaldson


    Suddenly everything is in flower – all at once – and as much as I am enjoying the wonderful weather, I’m also wishing that it would slow down a bit – and rain. It is very dry here and the sandy soil means that anything that isn’t well mulched needs to be watched for wilting – even the tulips in pots are flagging. The pear blossom is glorious, the camassias are opening and I can see fat buds on the large-flowered clematis and some of the roses.
