May downpours bring forth Summer flowers!

A bone dry and rather cold April has been followed by what has been, to say the least, a damp May. We’re now at least in a period of sunshine and showers here on the Shropshire/Worcestershire border and the garden is loving it. Just in the last few days we have seen the first iris’ open together with the beautifully delicate polemonium ‘Giant Lilac’. In a week’s time the borders are going to be filled with colour with lupins and alliums now on the brink of flowering. This really is a very lovely time of year and the plants are loving the rain-sun-rain weather pattern. Gardeners on the other hand might prefer to see just a little bit more sun!
