I love it when Doves visit the garden. They bring a sense of peace with them........
A crab spider hides beneath the bloom of Rosa Rugosa, waiting for its next victim.
Gold at the end of the rainbow..........a ball of tiny spiders, springing into life.
A caterpillar on pendulous sedge. No id as yet, unless you can help??
I removed every Coreopsis during February, the rabbits loved them a little too much and they never did particularly well. This is the replacement :) Trollius chinensis 'Golden Queen' She should do well here. A lover of cooler conditions and moist soil she should fit in happily.
I have planted drifts of them through the damp borders and in the bog garden. I am hoping with time they will make a statement. The best thing about this plant is : rabbits do not like them, and for me, that has become quite an issue. At the moment they appear to be leaving them alone :)
I have been very careful with the changes I have made here and am looking forward to showing you the results. I love Trollius, and will at some point plant our native 'europaeus' You might wonder why I did not do that initially. The reason is that the bloom of our native is very pale, and I wanted something that was just a little bit bolder :)
