I have decided to have flowery meads around all large trees in the garden. Today I added plants to the area around the old apple tree.....spring flowers.
puschkinia scilloides........I have also added native ferns. Many of these plants were used during the medieval period.
Tomorrow I shall remove the turf and plant around the maple tree. Poppi and Riley's meadow........camomile, creeping thyme, and alpine strawberries. At the height of summer can you imagine my two little grand-children sitting amongst the camomile and thyme picking tiny alpine strawberries.......If you have a moment would you like to come and see what I found by chance today. Please shut the gate behind you.
This sweet hellebore is blooming by the entrance to the warren. I really can't believe it.....do you think the rabbits have taken up gardening as a hobby!!!
BTW Nella has caught several rabbits during the last few weeks. I also have a fox visiting. Numbers are dropping slowly........
