Saturday was a much needed sunny day, finally after weeks of grey and damp; the garden positively zinged with freshness.
I think green comes into its own in Spring. More than any time of the year it acts as not only a foil to the spring flowers but the emerging shoots and leaves have their own vibrancy.
I am particularly pleased with this combination of epimedium and drumstick primulas. Orange and purple are complimentary colours, making each other sing. This was a colour combination we saw used so well at the Ascot Spring Garden Show.
Ranunculus ‘Brazen Hussy’ is a quiet major contributor to the garden, providing a soft glow under the shrubs. I do like the mix of the yellow flowers and bronze foliage.
Finally, I will leave you with a quick project from this weekend. I had some old bee solar garden lights which were no longer working so I removed the bees from the cabling and wired them to the trellis. I’m rather pleased with the effect.
