The Floral Parade - 2019
« on: January 02, 2019, 15:42 »
I've done a couple of similar threads, but time for a proper sticky topic I think.

It doesn't have to be an actual flower, just an ornamental plant you have grown and are proud of, is looking lovely or brightens your day somehow.

I'll start with a couple - the first spring flowers in my garden are some pretty cyclamen and the garrya is having it's moment of glory.  It is a good screening evergreen and is easily clipped into shape, but the tassels are something a bit special, especially at this time of year when not much else is doing much  :)

These are always the first snowdrops to bloom in my garden  :)  They are next to my little wildlife pond and are just starting to bud and flower.

the cyclamen are looking great, and I have one snowdrop appeared,  (do pigeons peck these?).  The Iberis haven't stopped flowering all year.  The lobelia and bedding begonias are all doing well. French Marigolds, and the Skimmia, lovely berries, but I am worried about the leaves, they are looking a bit bleached.

I would like a Garrya, but haven't got the room.  This is such a nice thread.  regards,  Mrs Bouquet

Lots today to spot while there was a break in the rain.

Hellebores galore.  I have then from white to inky dark purple and as many in-between as I can find  :D

Plus native primrose and wild crocus that have seeded into my garden from somewhere.  They are everywhere now and I'm quite happy about that  :D

Lots to choose from today, but my top 3 were Scilla growing under my olive tree, Epimedium lutea, which is a pretty, shade loving plant and some of my new bulbs.  These are Narcissus Prom Dance  :)
