The Bluebells started blooming a few days’ ago, although it took me until yesterday to notice them. The pond rocks are piled high in front of them so it was a delightful treat to see them by happenstance. I am tempted to try using the leaves in a salad – you might remember when I first discovered Bluebells were edible.
It seems as if it was just yesterday when I was talking about Meadowrues
and how taken I was with them. Now the earliest of the Meadowrues has started blooming (see pic at left). I love this pink colour. There is a much larger one to the left of this one in the garden and it has mauve blooms. They are very airy flowers which perfectly complements their Columbine-like foliage. If only they bloomed all summer long!
