Morning everyone, have a super day. There won’t be much gardening done here today as everything is soaking wet after yesterday’s horrendous rain ☔️ so maybe it’s time to give the greenhouse a good clean #pasqueflower #pulsatilla-vulgaris #macro

Morning Jane, my shed is getting a bottoming today the builders used it as well, suffice to say it needs a good airing! The rain was a welcome showering and bath for my garden, found out where the water runs off, a replan of what goes where I think 🤔. Lovely photo btw ☺️

@hebelover they were possibly frosted a few weeks ago. My white one has been fine but the purple one hasn’t flowered at all

1w
comment
hebelover

After I put that I went and had a look at them, the buds are all dead in the centre, I guess the frost like Joan says, but on the upside they have all got new foliage, so I think I'll dig then up and move them to a sunnier, more free draining spot and see how they do @pelly @joanboston
