Gardening with ME: a floral review of 2016

January: Iris histrioides 'Lady Beatrix Stanley'

As is customary at this time of the year, it's time to undertake a review of how things went in the garden in 2016. However, as my health is poorly, I'm cheating and not writing a review per se. Instead, I looked though my photos through the year and am posting my favourite flowers, and in one case, foliage, from each month.

February: Heucherella 'Tapestry'

March: Hepatica transsilvanica 'Blue Eyes'

April: Narcissus Cragford

May: Tulipa Ballerina

June: Allium hollandicum 'Purple Sensation'

July: Thalictrum 'Anne' 

August: Allium cyaneum

September: Gaura lindheimeri 'Whirling Butterflies'

October: Geranium nodosum 'Clos du Coudray'

November: Quince Cydonia oblonga 'Serbian Gold'

December: Crocus Speciosus Cassiope

Despite the ME affecting my ability to work in the garden through much of the year, the flowers just got on with their jobs, and their performance was exemplary. Brava!

Good gardening to you all in 2017.

  2. Wonderful selection, it's amazing how our gardens just carry on flowering without our help sometimes. I hope 2017 is a better year for you.
