The weather has been more settled his week, I was away for a long weekend but I’ve been told that the temperatures rose quite dramatically at the weekend to the mid 20’s with no cold wind ti make it feel colder. I was away 4 days; I was shocked to see how much had changed when I returned. Many tulips are now flowering and salad crops in trays in the greenhouse doubled in size!
Muscari on the slope are continuing to grow and so the amount of blue is stronger than last week. More Eschscholzia californica are opening, the ones flowering seem to be the plants that survived from last year while the newer plants will flower a little later which is nice as it will extend the season.
I know there has been continued bad weather in North America and summer-like weather in much of the UK, what’s it been like where you garden? Is there one part of your garden that is particularly good at this time of year?
