This week I seem to have a lot of white flowers in bloom in my garden. I noticed that there seems to be some with similar shapes, so this week I give you the "Belles" of My Garden, a rhapsody in white.
|Lily Of The Valley|
|Giant Snow Drops|
All of my "Belles" are clumping up quite nicely. Lily of the Valley can be quite invasive but I forgive all because the flower smells so wonderful, plus the leaves stay green all summer giving a nice cover. The Solomon's Seal were purchased as three stems & rather expensive but thankfully there is quite a gathering now & they have a fairly long bloom time. I like the green edging on these bells. The Snowdrops bloom quite early in most gardens but not mine, I think these are known as Giant Snowdrops & while they are clumping up nicely, this Spring there wasn't as many blooms as previously years so I'll need to ensure some heavy feeding over the Summer into the Autumn so I get myself a glorious amount of blooms next Spring. They also have a nice touch of green on the flowers.
