Gosh, we are at Day 8 of this treasure hunt which means only one more day to go. May 23rd is the last day of the event. Of course we can and will all keeping finding treasure in our gardens/outdoor spaces when this event is finished for this year. (for this year I hear you ask? does that mean........ I could not possibly comment....)Walnut Kitchen Garden A bright treasure on these dull days indeed.Val Bradley shared this clematis which is a treasure just starting to flower in her new garden. New gardens are a wonderful treasure-trove as there is so much to wait and see what appears (and then decide to dig it up or not.)Penelope Faith shared this one as a treasure. This broccoli just starting to appear and is indeed a wonderful treasure. I always think broccoli is a well-behaved vegetable to grow and nothing tastes as good as the home-grown ones.
Vicky Thornton shared this incredible blue cynoglossum as her treasure, what a great treasure it is.
Sarah Barker's treasure today is this acer, name now lost, but is the first plant they bought and is over 34 years old. This is precious treasure indeed.
Margaret shared this double treasure. A treasure hidden in a treasure. Holly the cat thinks it is invisible in the Myrrhis odorata or Sweet Cicely. A classic case of 'if I can't see you, you can't see me'.
Siobhan Lancaster. A treasure indeed sparkling from the recent rain and looking not battered by the constant breeze.
Karen Gimson shared this amazing peony as a treasure from her recent visit to Belvoir Castle, which is in itself a local treasure.
Barbara Segall as her treasure today. Apparently it has well-mannered buds and has been flowering for weeks. I do not know this tree but I think I will have to get acquainted with it. (adds to shopping list....)
Thank you to everyone who has taken part today, it has been great fun. I wonder what treasures will be found tomorrow? May 23rd is the final day of this event. Use the hashtags #blackberrygardentreasurehunt and #chelseafringe to join in.
