A Forest Garden - Record of Progress

Flowers and Sunshine

Cornflowers and Nasturtiums self seeded this year, in much larger numbers than was to be expected.

About a tonne of horse manure was added to the front yard last Autumn, so how any seeds got through that pile is a welcome mystery.

Those cornflowers have just started, give it another few weeks and there will be scores of baby blue flowers calling out to the insect world – Here we are!!

Such contrast between the flower’s blue folds and the silvery green foliage.

Faded cherry rose flowers will hold this color through the Summer.

Oranges and Reds, all self seeding around the lemon tree.

Messy for some – just right for me.
