Allium’s, Raindrops and an Orderly Vegetable Garden in May

Order! Order in the vegetable garden in May, that’s what’s requested, that is what’s required this is when the garden should look at it’s near best.

Raindrops on Pak Choi capturing the beauty and depth of rich crimson devine.

Line up, line up no time for the Maypole dance, ‘Golden Gourmet’ shallots keep watch as Snowball onion and French garlic prance.

May open gardens are at their best just as we go pre-Chelsea weekend! They burst into colour and contrast a happy blend of fresh foliage on tree and greenest lawns to an end.

May makes us happy to be, it’s the warming sun as we weed, it’s the cooling breeze that keeps it at ease.

Welcoming  gardens tranquility with a humbling grace, a friendly nod to the frost gone with out trace.

Alliums and Iris a delight to behold, Globemaster, Purple Slendour, Valor with names so romantic a May tale has been told.
