This photo was taken on April 20th, 2007. before I knew of the existance of this website. The previous summer,2006, a woman in the parish gave me about 150 bluebell bulbs from her garden. They do multiply a lot don't they!

So I distributed them in about 12 spots along this section. I didn't photograph them when they were in high bloom, cos I didn't know about GG.org and I only have this one because I was going to contact the city council about the graffiti. The flowers are already 'going over' at this time, but you get the idea. The landscape is a bit barren so they add a nice touch of colour in the spring.

Maybe in 2008 I'll attach photos of some of the rest. I have started some seed bombs in this area too. Hollyhock and nigella/love in a mist.

More later...

This could just as easily be posted in the Canal+ thread.
However, it's not!

Dear heavens, T! You've gone over the 200 limit! (I'm glad to see it  Grin)

And lovely bluebells! Although the name had me confused at first, it translates into a completely different flower in Swedish...

and watering in the bluebells...



it's been SO dry it's unreal. Just like Summer weather in late spring




okay, it takes a while for the bluebells to come into bloom....

but when they do, it's worth noting...

In 2013 transplanted a young teasel into the spot in Reply 8, photo #4.


I was watching it progress all the while. The cotoneaster horizontalis grew and recovered, wrapping itself around the plant. A great camoflage I thought.


June 13th, 2013.

And then a month later.
July 13th, 2013


I thought I was on the pig's back. Until someone reached right in and dug it out! Ha! how spiteful! Oh well. Back to the drawing board.
It's not been the only vandalism I've had in this area.
