Now this was a real surprise this week.
I had planted my anemones (rather foolishly) months ago. Since then, as all UK dwellers are well aware, we have had rain a-plenty… and flooding… and more rain…
I had given up all hope that my plantings would make it through the inevitable rot, that would surely come after spending months in a rather waterlogged raised bed.
However – ha! Nature has toughed it out and I am seeing sprout after sprout appearing. All fresh and green and lovely. I now have my fingers firmly crossed that they will continue to grow healthily and produce their beautiful, almost poppy-like flowers, which always look incredible in hand-tied posies.
Have a great weekend!
