Give a perfectionist a pile of rough old walling stone and a straight string line, and watch him squirm.
If you’ve followed the discussion after that last post (I love those replies), you’d have seen Cathy’s on Sternbergia – an Autumn-flowering crocus-like thing.
It had me trawling through pics that I knew I’d taken, but don’t ever remember seeing, of the only time I’d seen Sternbergia naturalised/wild.
I’m in search of the perfect companion for my colchicums. They’ve been in flower since the last week of Feb and are looking distinctly lonely.
I’m really missing the days of untrammelled plant acquisitiveness. They were the glory days – that period of time when I lived in one big happy world of new and interesting plants – all of which had to be purchased and trialled.
This hardly counts as a post, but for those local to localish readers, I’m filling in this coming tuesday evening as guest speaker at the Mt Macedon Horticultural Society.
