A Week of Flowers

Day One: 22 November 2020

Cathy at Words and Herbs has a beautiful garden in Bavaria. She has green fingers, is a talented cook and a gentle soul. So I am delighted to join her is posting photographs of flowers from my garden that have made me smile this year. I hope that the eclectic mix of flowers from my island garden may lighten your day in these uncertain times.
This is my contribution from a very stormy Scottish island. Please have a look at the other contributions (links on Cathy’s blog) and join us in our attempt to spread a little joy.

Eucomis pole-evansii

Eucomis may seems to be a little exotic for my northern island garden, but they have survived and multiplied in my well drained sandy soil and virtually frost free environment. The leaves may get shredded by the strong winds, but the spikes of waxy flowers are robust and long lasting. Their stately elegant form is eye catching, but it is the tuft of leaves at the top of the spike which make me smile.

  1. They are beautiful flowers and it is surprising that such an exotic-looking plant could survive your climate! Thank you so much for joining in, and your kind words too. xx

  2. Yes, it seems quite bizarre that they do well for you. My E pole evansii continues to do well – such a lovely gift, thank you

    • I’m pleased your bulbs have survived. They really are tougher then they look.

      • I would have thought they wouldn’t like the wet though, particularly over winter
