Early morning pleasure

I awoke to another sunny day and on stepping outside to the garden look what I saw.

A glorious sight of fabulous poppies all with their faces towards the sun. Last year we scattered on all the flower seeds we owned on this little patch and it’s a riot of colour again. I’m so pleased that Kate and Kim identified these seed heads of Allium Nectaroscordum. for me. I saw them at Parceval Hall last year but now they’re in my garden and I’m so pleased about that.

Oh happy day!

Parceval Hall Gardens

We took a family trip out to Parceval Hall Gardens in the Yorkshire Dales. It’s not the biggest gardens but they’re very pleasant with some lovely plants and brilliant scenery from the terraces.They’re well hidden away down a dead end lane so you won’t be looking round with a cast of thousands. It has plant sales and a tea room with really nice jam and cream scones. What surprised me was to learn the hall was built in 1929 as it looks much older.

I don’t know what plant the seed heads are from in the first picture but I fell in love with them and if anyone knows what they are please tell me so I can buy some. My daughter and I also had a go at land art which was tricky as the breeze kept moving the petals.

Can you tell what it is yet? No, me neither but it was fun doing it.

My husband took some great insect photos as well.
