English Mothers Day
In the garden many of the early daffodils are now over and even some tulips! Goodness they were so early this year. The species tulips on the rock garden came back for their third year -they are just gorgeous and a pretty good perennial for this part of the world. Some are really quite tall too though the flowers are smaller and more delicate looking.
Now is also the time to begin planting for the summer show. we still jhave lilies. Have you tried the wonderful orange double tiger lily it is just stunning. great pick for those Clemson fans too! Don't forget my own beautiful asiatic lily Patricia's Pride. i will look out a picture for you tomorrow so you can see just how lucky I am to have such an awesome flower named for me!
Planted some Grand Cru lilies in the wine garden this morning. They are also eye catching in gold and red and they are paired with the white lily Muscadet for a stunning summer show.
