Every year I am fooled into thinking I have a spacious garden. I mean, why on earth would a modest pot like this need all that space?*
The plants have plenty of elbow room.
Tiny scillas and modest hellebores are easily visible.
I get super excited about the first blossoms on the cherry
and the fattening buds on the camellias.
The bees and I become delirious on the scent of the skimmia which fills the air for yards around (you can’t see them because of my photography, but I gave up trying to count them). I have this temporary sense of control, I even add a plant or two… and every year nature teaches me a lesson before we reach midsummer.
