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 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.
