Flower Power

The flowers at the allotment continue to amaze. When we arrive the first vision is that of a field of poppies, growing in a neighbour’s lower allotment plot.

We were treated to flowers appearing on the Christmas cactus that we saved from the the side of the road. The plant I left outside all winter is now in flower. The cossetted plant that I kept indoors at the flat is doing well but isn’t in flower. Hhhmmnnnn….

The red rose arbour is – once again – absolutely dripping in flowers.

The damask rose is also doing well but we need to continue to treat it for black spot.

And most exciting of all, the sea holly has finally – after three long years – finally come into flower! How spectacular!

It’s all looking rather magical.
