If we are at Day 7 there are only two more days to go of this Chelsea Fringe Event, I shall miss it when it is over as I have really enjoyed the treasures everyone has shared. The weather has been so horrid here today I am impressed by anyone being out there finding treasures so a huge thank you!Barbara Segall, over on instagram, shared this beautiful Silene fimbriata which she says is 'rising like a green tide in the border'; I can just picture it.
Archie the Wonderdog shared this delightful treasure of a bee and aquilegia ensemble. The aqueligias are just starting to flower in my garden and they are a big favourite of the bees. A good treasure to share.
Sarah Barker's treasure for the day is this rained on small feathery leaved lush Paeonia tenuifolia, this time last year it was in full bloom. It's structure is so delicate "but it copes brilliantly with the autumnal weather of May 2021!" - a sentiment I can identify with though mine has decided not to flower at all this year. So I am pleased to see that this one is managing to keep going.
