This Monday I am joining Cathy at Rambling in the Garden again with a vase. Correction, several vases…
Meet The Can-can Girls!
(It is raining steadily again, after several days of very cold and wet weather, so these were snipped to savour them before they get totally drenched.)
This is Poppy at the centre of the stage – a real show-stopper and the leading lady, although she does tend to clash a bit. (That doesn’t seem to bother her!)
Then Paeonia (known as Pea to her friends) is looking rather sparkly in her frilly pink dress complete with diamond-like raindrops.
The shy one is Iris, long-legged and willowy and a bit classier than the other girls.
And finally Tulipa Estella Rijnveld (the other girls just call her Stella but she doesn’t like her name being shortened) is a bit past her prime, but still going strong. Just look at those petticoats!
Do you have any stars putting on a show in your garden this week? Do share!
Before I leave you today, I have a mystery plant… this was given to me yesterday by some neighbours. They also have no idea what it is…
Any assistance would be appreciated, as I should like to find out what kind of care it needs.
