Tuesday at Two (May 28th)

What a week it has been! Cool and showery. A rained out Sunday and Monday, with unseasonally low temperatures. But bright warm sunshine at last today!


The Aquilegias have definitely been the plant of the month…


They withstand the wind and rain


And keep the few bees that venture out happy


But the most amazing plant in May was this tulip, “Texas Gold”, which has flowered all month, despite lots of stormy showers, and has gradually turned more and more orange around its slightly frilly edges.


What has been YOUR favourite flower this May?
