This little Celendine now showing it's first flower these will make a beautiful mound of sparkling golden flowers in a couple of weeks time. They make huge swathes at the roadside and seed freely .This one is very slow to multiply,I'm sure it isn't setting any seeds
I saw these beautiful little blue flowers (Anenome Blanda) planted in huge drifts in the Botanical Gardens at Glasnevin just outside Dublin many years ago The memory of it tempted me to plant them here in my meadow. It will take many years before look here as they do there but you have to start somewhere.
The winter here in Wales has been very mild with very little frost ,but we have had strong wind gales and endless rain . the soil in the meadow is like a soggy wet sponge. The up side is that the trees are starting into bud and the daffodils are not far off flowering.
The seeds in the new Irish wild flower border have started to germinate already .I'm really excited about this little project. Not only will it add even more diversity in the way of many extra wild flowers that I don't have here already , it will be a constant memory of wonderful holidays with our wonderful friend Frances in co Kildare
