The first peony of the year.
The last Iris – it was a short season for them this year.
The gardener’s friend – a black headed (?) worm in one of my raised beds. They can’t half move when they want to.
One of last years houseleeks – about to go out in a blaze of glory
I forget about this little gem, it’s usually hidden by lavender but I spotted it as I was getting into the car – but is it a saxifrage or a sedum? Or something else entirely? It has rosettes similar to – but smaller than – those of London Pride, which is a saxifrage.
Whatever it is, I’ll be moving some of it into my new Sedum Bed – just as soon as the rain stops long enough for me to build it! I was hopeful when I got up, but it’s raining again – just not as heavily as previously.
Later, I think I’ll spend some time in the greenhouse sowing lettuce seeds. The Little Gem seeds I sowed outdoors last Sunday have probably washed away.
If it’s raining where you are, make yourself a tea or coffee and take a look at The Propagator’s Blog to see how our fellow gardeners have been coping with weather conditions in their part of the world.
