Green Thumb Sunday May 27th
I'm absolutely thrilled with my flowering yucca. It looks so beautiful i can't help admiring it every time I go outside or look out of the windows. Especially when the light catches it in a certain way!
My chives are also flowering. I know I should remove the seed heads but they are so pretty. The garlic chives are coming up well but are not really photogenic right now.
I have a challenge for everyone....help me name my new gnome! I bought him on my trip to Leeds to visit Talj. I liked him because he's reading book and I'm a librarian. I'd love a really suitable name for him so I thought I'd ask for ideas.
Talj gave me a container of salad leaves she has grown but has no room for plus a sage plant in a beautiful blue pot. I'm looking forward to eating home grown salad! Do you pick the leaves by hand or cut them with scissors? And will they grow up again? (I've never grown salad before!)
Hope everyone has a happy gardening day. Forecast here is for wind and rain so I doubt I'll be able to get outside much :(
