In amongst all of these beautiful colours a simple branch of perennial stock is adding a deep rich scent to the already intense scent of freesias, narcissi, and wallflowers.
I love the scent of all of these flowers but the stock is the most recent arrival so it’s getting my attention.
The tulips are still flowering, and newly out this week are Spring Green, Princess Irene, Camargue, and Black Diamond. They all have lovely long stems except for Princess Irene. It’s quite possible that I didn’t get the ratio of compost to sand to rotten chicken manure right, or that the princess being in a cold windy place had a worse time of it.
Princess Irene is growing next to Black Diamond in the night time garden which has dark and bright colours.
All the coloured freesias are coming out now and the last of the narcissi are coming in to flower.
