Gertie’s Garden Diary. The First Week of May, 2019.

Gertie’s Garden Diary.
The First Week of May, 2019.





From fading Bluebells to a burgeoning blue-flower-filled Blue Hill, GG is turning slowly to mauves and pinks. These three colours predominate this week, with the occasional splash of yellow.





Even the pretty blue Myosotis is changing to delicate pink, matching the tiny Herb Robert in its delicacy, and contrasting with the vibrant pink-in-yer-face of Ann Folkard!




From fluffy, fat pompoms of Bellis …..


… to the wildness of spiky Geraniums and multi-florets of Valerian, the pink is out already, I wait for white and hope for red.


You can smell the beautiful vanilla-like perfume of the massed Clematis as you near the Arbour …..


… and let’s not forget the beauty of the growing, flower-spiked Heucheras.



Summer reds are on their way! ‘Au revoir blues and Tulips?’

Anne ….. May 7th 2019.

    A wonderful medley of colour Anne. My beautiful clematis Marjorie is completely and mysteriously dead apart from one little shoot :-( time is certainly marching on. I love your bee photo. :-)

    Time sure is Cilla…nearly halfway through the year already! I am thrilled with the scent around the Clematis ,which is completely, but beautifully out of control :mad: :silly: Not sure how I shall deal with it after flowering, but for now will just enjoy it :-) :rose:

    Such lovely colours and do love even the rain drops on the flowers, and that tulip is beautiful too with its flouncy fringe :good:
