My garden in Chelsea week (and blossom from Mum's garden)
It's Chelsea Flower Show week again, and while I am deciding which are my favourite gardens, here are the stars of my own garden. I have not been very successful with aquilegia before, but this year, I have three plants which are looking lovely. The top one is one from my sister, who has several old fashioned, but lovely varieties in her garden.
I bought this one last year and it is looking fabulous.
This was supposed to be a blue one, but, as you can see, it's pink!
Tulip 'Blue Parrot' from the 'cosy autumn swap' - thank you to cookie!
Tulip 'Black Parrot' looking amazingly frilled and beruffled.
My gold medal goes to Tulip Ballerina (I think you may have guessed that!). Even as the age, they are still beautiful, elegant and graceful.
Now to Mum's delicate apple blossom - about a month late, but stunning.
It is just such a pretty flower and the dark pink buds highlight the white petals.
