Then we still have flowering prunus and malus about. The last of the forget-me-nots and most excitedly roses are starting there first flush of the season. Take a look
|This ground cover is cute, a little weedy. And I can never remember its name|
|The rain damned this guy but I love the colour contrast|
|This Forget-me-not is pretty as a picture|
|But they sure don't want to be forgotten in a hurry|
|I don't know the name of this rose either but it is my absolute favourite in all my gardens|
Before you go I have a small problem and thought some of you very clever people out there might be able to help. I have a tiny patch of space between the house and path just in front of the new terraces. It is a patch that sits just at the bottom of the stairs. There used to be a built up bed which I always thought seemed a bit rubbish so I knocked it apart. The trouble is I have discovered 2 drains seem to just end there. Normally it isn't much of a problem that is until it rains....
As you can see it doesn't drain away quickly. Mr R is not keen to have dig up the pathway and his new vegetable beds in order to get new drains in.
My plans (before discovering 2 drain ends) was to plant my rhubarb but they do not like wet feet. Of course it only floods like this during rain. I can't think of anything that might put up with occasional flooding. Anyone have a thought? Otherwise it might look like a lot of digging up the garden, sigh.
