A quick vase and a quick post.
I've had a busy but good week. Still no rain so lots of watering to be done. I did a plant sale at the weekend so managed to offload plenty of things for other people to look after. It is still a marathon task here though with many things at the tiny seedling stage. The ground is now solid so planting is getting harder and it's imperative to remember what has been planted out and re-visit. I'm not expecting sympathy from those in dry climates who have it much worse, just surprise, this is England, after all!
I have one clump of these Spanish bluebells. The rest in the garden are all English, as are the ones in the wood up the lane from here.
I've been thinking about digging up the bulbs so they don't cross with the English ones. Today it was off with their heads so I could enjoy them in a vase. I possibly should have seared the stems first but if they droop I'll do it then. They have a slightly odd smell so I hope it doesn't become unpleasant.
I think I'll dig them up. What would you do?
