It may be a grey day but…

The wind was cold, the sky was grey, but one woman in the east was standing in her garden smiling…

Muscari racemosum

Lovely to see this old favourite back again. Muscari racemosum looking unusual among the blues and purples and smelling gorgeous.

Pseudomuscari chalusicum

New to me this year, I hope Pseudomuscari chalusicum goes from strength to strength.

Muscari armeniacum Touch of Snow

And finally the result of a trip to the garden centre last week, now showing off about the reason for its name, Muscari armeniacum Touch of Snow.

Pseudomuscari coeleste

So it took most of last year and two house moves, but my little collection of bulbs is finally settled in to a permanent new home and is now getting on with the business of being beautiful.

Pseudomuscari coeleste once again is the first to open a bud in the February sunshine.

Lots of green leaves and a few spots of colour as the usual early suspects begin to stretch.

It’s good to see some colour in some leaves too.

Muscari parviflorum is giving a tiny bold display of red flushed leaves which I have not noticed in previous years.

It’s also really exciting to see seedlings from last year putting on more growth in the greenhouse.

I’ve been very impressed with the germination and development of a number of seeds that I purchased from Plant World Seeds including these Pseudomuscari chalusicum.

Looking forward to the next few months… and looking out for any local snails!

Pseudomuscari azureum

Another early flowering variety, Pseudomuscari azureum make me think of ballerinas in tutus.

Pseudomuscari azureum – Feb 2019

So the website is beginning to take shape. I’ll be adding to it this year as and when there is something interesting to report.

The page for Pseudomuscari azureum is already online. Please stop by and let me know what you think (constructive criticism is always welcome). And If you like it, please share with your garden friendly friends.

Thank you 🙂
