Tuesday Treats

It is Tuesday, isn’t it?  I’m losing all track of time…

So assuming it’s Tuesday, it’s time for Tuesday Treats, and I have another Nature Table for the Gardening Groups – and anyone else – to have a crack at.  Again, these all come from Dunham Massey.

See what you make of the following, and I’ll come back after Friday to edit it for the curious, and put in the names.

Edited to add: Puschkinia scilloides var libanotica, one of the group of plants that botanists refer to as ‘little blue bulbs’.

Well?  Answers on a postcard, please…  :~))

What do you take with yours?

Today’s little cheer-up is from a gardener who has some not-often seen plants in the garden.

First is a lovely striped and flecked camellia.

And second is the Australian Philotheca myoporoides, otherwise known as the long-leafwax flower, or the gin-and-tonic plant.

Why the gin-and-tonic plant?  Apparently it’s from the fresh, zesty fragrance.

Make mine a Campari, gin and lemonade, please…
