Good afternoon its late this year
Lots of things looking good in my garden, just cannot post pics here. Two other forums accept pics with no issues.
Good evening @redstar I have sent you a PM my friend
I will usually do a video walk around at some point then upload that to You tube and to this then.
Uvularia grandiflora is looking weedy this year, probably due to to cold conditions that arrived after it emerged.............. Uvularia grandiflora by longk48, on Flickr I don't often buy plants but I did buy this Salvia at the weekend.............. Unknown Salvia by longk48, on Flickr It was labelled as S.azurea but it is not that. More likely it is S.coerulea. Lewisia season..............

The tree peony is already going over . It's three or four weeks earlier than usual The lilacs are just opening - also a couple of weeks early. This is one of our double lilacs Variegated London Pride is just starting to flower Although we cut back the Euphorbia mellifera quite heavily it's still managing to dominate the bed Allium giganteum is just opening - about 4ft high Viburnum plicatum will soon be fully open
Honesty may be a weed in a lot of gardens but we like it. This is our only white one - so far. This never looks any good in photos but looks good in situ. Its flowers are insignificant until you take a closer look. They're not much more than half an inch
This has been in flower on the patio for about three weeks. It is growing out of the join between the wall of the kitchen and the patio so it's quite sheltered and has survived all the frosts. Mrs Shiney said she wants some more space in the veg plot so this area has been cleared of self seeded plants of all kinds. Some have been rehomed. The Magnolia frames Rosemary very well (that was her name when she applied for residence). Beneath the Magnolia the Tiarella is just starting to flower - with Allium siculum not quite ready to flower Cytissus battandieri (pineapple tree) is forming its flowers Double white lilac Montana is starting to open. The Conference pear in front of it looks as though it will have a bumper crop.
A few of my early flowering clematis
Crikey @shiney ! My Rehmannia is barely back in growth let alone in bloom!!!
@longk They're in the greenhouse - if that makes any difference
You cheating booger
They live in the greenhouse. It has been their home for years.
Heartless sod that I am mine live outdoors!
@Ian Taylor...I love that double-flowered Montana clematis! What's it called please?
@noisette47 pictures 5&6 or Broughton Star raised by the late Vince Denny pictures 9&10 or Octopus [Atragene group]
We thought they weren't hardy . They creep all over the greenhouse and we must have a dozen or more.
They are hardy if kept away from winter wet. Mine are protected overhead by large evergreen trees.
Everything is smelling of lilac
Good afternoon my lily of the valley after the rain
