This Euphorbia "Clarice Howard" looks even better in close-up.
|Crab-claws, or spanners? What do you think?|
The Daffodils are right at their peak.
Some of them are bold, brash, and "in-your-face".
Others are more muted.
Some of them are delicate and "feminine". This one looks almost like a ballerina in a tutu!
The Convallaria Majalis (Lily of the Valley) is thrusting up through the soil near my shed. Just like the Euphorbia this spreads rapidly and may need to be discouraged!
I even have one hardy Geranium (aka Cranesbill) plant. I've forgotten what variety it is! It's a tall one which has purplish-pink blooms. Some years ago I was as mad keen on Hardy Geraniums as I am now on Dogwoods, but I lost interest in them and removed them. This one got left behind by accident.
This is what the flowers look like (photo from Summer 2010).
|Can anyone identify the variety for me?|
The Golden Hop is energetic and impatient to get to the top of the fence...
Hey, this post is long enough already, so I'll post about the edible plants tomorrow...
