Here we are balanced on the half-way mark of this treasure hunt. I am really enjoying seeing all the treasures that have been found and immensely grateful to everyone who is taking part. So, where to start today......Vicky Thornton on Twitter., beautifully set against a deep blue sky. A perfect treasure.Walnut Kitchen Garden shared this double (or is it triple?) whammy of treasure: blue sky and kniphofia - to be treasured individually and as a combination. How wonderful is this?
Jane also shared this treasured Euphorbia polychroma - what a stunner!Nigel Owen shared these blackberry leaves. Well I am always going to love a blackberry leaf, this is a treasure I have a lot of.
RosesUk, who in herself is a treasure-trove of the most beautiful rose photos and information, has chosen this Geranium macrorrhizum as her treasure today which she says 'after a scruffy winter perks up beautifully', this sounds like a life-aim I should embrace.
Over on instagram Barbara Segall shared this treasure that is sight and scent, this wonderful lilac tree. I badly pruned mine last year so have no flowers - such a fail on my part so I treasure this 'borrowed' lilac even more.Marysa Norris shared this little mouse plant, Arisarum proboscidium which she says appears every year in a corner of her woodland garden and I almost missed seeing them this year. A very good treasure to find.
Judith_plumduff has chosen this sweet woodruff as her treasure today. Judith says: it is her favourite ground cover plant for dry shade. "Bright green spirals of foliage topped by a froth of tine white flowers at this time of year. Creeps about happily but easy to remove where you don’t want it. I started my carpet with two 3inch pots many years ago" Truly a worthy plant to treasure.
