Another warm and wonderful spring day on Planet Edge. It was spent planting the accumulated purchases that have been stockpiled by Lavinia, in the way us acquisitive types tend to do. Her taste is of course impeccable, including the delightfully dark Penstemon “Blackberrry”, Achillea “Cerise Queen” (from experience more Boudica than Fairy), a yet to be identified campanula which could quite possibly be C. takesimana and a purple agrostemma. Seeds were sown of a white form of the Flanders poppy, Cosmos bipinnatus and Anemone multifida. As I plied my trade in all four corners of the garden the scent of hyacinth, intensified by the gentle caress of the sun, was so heavy you had to push your way through it. Diverting, sometimes over-whelming and definitely intoxicating. Well it put a daft smile on my face anyway!
