It’s been a late start to the flowers but at last the tulips have arrived. I didn’t protect the borders from rabbits this year and oddly they haven’t touched them. I’m not sure why as we still have a rabbit problem in the garden despite all my efforts to keep them out but I certainly wont grumble.
One of the surprise has been the Chocolate Vine/Akebia quinata which has never really survived above ground before but this year is giving a lovely early display along the back of the fence.
I am also quite taken with the delicate and pretty flowers on the Weeping Pear/Pyrus salicifolia ‘Pendula’, which I have never noticed before.
Other than that it’s the usual suspects taking center stage and proving some much needed colour. There are still quite a few tulips in the cutting patch to flower but I’ll save that for another day as two posts in one day is miracle enough and I need to go and do my final water!
