April is fast approaching and it is my favourite month. And already things are livening up in the garden. Today I was noticing yellow – gorse, dandelions, lesser celendine, even a buff-tailed queen bee and of course the daffodils which are looking at their best now.
But the purple sprouting broccoli looks pretty cool too and tastes even better.
And some of you may be able to hep me name this pink flower. My sister gave me a present of one and after it had flowered last year, I noticed some seeds. I gathered them and grew them on. I had quite a lot germinate and have planted some among the mini daffodils – the colour contrast looks great (sorry no photo of that). But here is a photo of one growing in a pot in the polytunnel. The flowers stands on a single stalk which comes from a rosette of leaves.
