23rd May

My Chelsea Garden.
Well that is what Lyn calls my garden, it doesn't exist in the winter.
Made up of mostly tender plants, which have to be given protection from the wet and cold.
It takes me about two to three weeks to gradually get the plants out from the various places they are stored, and also to dismantle the temporary storage structures that adorn the garden for the winter.

The plants have been out for about ten days now, not all in their final positions, just taking in some of the sunshine, to get them growing again.
--------------------
The plants will gradually grow to fill out the garden, the paths are a bit full 
at the moment !! with plants waiting to be positioned.



Echiums are good this year, but have been quite a job the fleece on the very cold nights.
Bees are very appreciative to get some early flowers.









Crinodendron hookerianum has loads of flowers again this year.


The Mule is getting restless. Part of a mosaic we made.


Roscoea 'Harvington Royale'  One of the earlier ones to flower.


My shed !!



And in Lyn's garden, the "Green time" between Spring flowers and Summer is just ending.


Rosa 'Golden Celebration' 


Rosa 'Dublin bay' 


Iris 'Tuxedo'
