Hooray for flowers!
These gorgeous velvety Anemones are growing in my poly tunnel. The joke is that my Mum, who lives 10 miles away, has them blooming in her garden with absolutely no cosseting.
I'm very happy to see them and they have very long stems too, bonus.
Last week I mentioned scoring stems of Hellebores. I did a quick non scientific experiment and I think it did make a difference. The stems did not collapse as they often do.
Here is a link to one of the places I read about this technique.
Green and Gorgeous.
Oh my, I wish I could take photographs like that!
Do visit Cathy at Rambling in the Garden to see what the others have found to put In a Vase on Monday.
