Another Garden Update
At the risk of turning this into a gardening blog, here's a bit more of what's going on in our garden at the moment...
First, our Nigella (or love-in-a-mist) is blooming, as you can see above. This year, in addition to the usual blue ones, we also got white ones, which is very strange. We've never seen those before. (They're not as pretty as the blue ones, in my humble opinion, but don't tell them that.)
Here are the roses. As you can see, I weeded the flower bed last weekend and removed all the faded forget-me-nots. We discovered a few plants, buried amid the rampant forget-me-nots, that we'd forgotten!
Here are the last of the amaryllis. We must bid adieu to them for another year.
And here's our newly relocated and now mouse-proof peanut feeder -- although, as you can see, it's not quite squirrel-proof. This critter climbed up to it, removed the lid and scooped out peanuts with its little paw! I duct-taped the lid to the feeder and put a stop to that. The birds love this new location -- blue tits and coal tits are on it all the time.
The pink and white flowers at the base of the feeder are valerian. They are certainly prolific!
