For this whimsical May bouquet, all shades of purple flowers were cut from my canal side garden.
It includes chive and more of that lovely aquilegia that I sent down to RHS Chelsea Flower Show for the Flowers From The Farm (FFTF) display. I’m bursting with pride by the way that the FFTF team achieved a gold medal. To play a very small part – I was one of the 94 growers who sent flowers – was so very lovely.
In other news I have discovered bumblebee’s have taken up residence at the side entrance to our garage. They are so beautiful but my goodness the noise their collective buzzing made when I moved the wood they are near was pretty terrifying. I’m going to need help to move them was the conclusion I’ve rapidly came to. Any advice and all suggestions most welcome. Honestly, the wildlife is taking over, and while a cutting garden bursting with wild flowers and wild life is what I am striving for, I concede that the blackbird nesting in one of my main growing areas is becoming slightly problematic.
