Accents Emerging

I love this time of year, watching each plant and tree waking up. These two are showing signs. A Mukdemia Rossi and Muscari.

Some Accents

A few accent snaps from recent weeks.

Nice Impostors

I planted up a dwarf Horsetail in this pot about 4 years ago and promptly neglected it among the others on my bench. Over the four years I had a few neighbouring plants move in of there own accord and have now made this their home. It’s also made my feeble efforts at kusamono look average.

New additions include, Rowan, Cotoneaster, Viola, and whatever the hell the big tall thing is. No clue, obviously brought in by the birds.

Accent: Natives

Rustyback Fern with Sedum gifted to me from County Cork and now in a Magic Ceramic Tray/tile.

Sea Thrift planted onto rock from the West of Ireland.

Accent: Edelweiss

A dwarf form of Edelweiss. Potter unknown.

Accent: Vitaliana

 

Loving this little native of Sierra Nevada. Maybe I’ll get to see some in the wild this month.

Accent: Sisyrinchium Devon Skies

It’s had to beat a Sisyrinchium at it’s peak. This ‘Devon Skies’ is a new variety to me this year and seems to flower a little earlier than my other varieties.

 

Scilla siberica

This one keeps on giving, continuous flowering for over a month now and the seed pods now add to the look. Pot by Magic Ceramics
