POLEMONIUM SONIA’S BLUEBELL

DSCF2829

The slightly fragrant, pale blue flowers of this hybrid variety of the hardy Polemonium, or Jacob’s Ladder, make their first appearance in the garden in Spring, but manage to keep on flowering into Summer too.

WOODLAND PATH

DSCF5675

I love woodland and the way the trees mark the seasons. It’s Spring, the beech trees have bright, lime-green. soft-to-the-touch leaves that gently filter the light rather than blocking it out. And the woodland flowers make their one-time bid to bloom and set seed before the canopy thickens up for the summer.
