jackson 301 Posted May 27, 2012 Report Share Posted May 27, 2012 *Mary, Mary, quite contrary, how does your garden grow?" "With silver bells and cockle shells and pretty maids all in a row." I was thrilled to find a cowslip growing in my garden today. I made it a bit more room, removing the weeds and some of the greenery around it. I've given it just a tiny amount of feed. It's a precious little jewel that's set itself in my garden. I'll not over fuss it, just hope and pray that others will grow - at one time the humble cowslip was in danger of becoming extinct. Aubrietias are popping up all over; their mauve and purple bells dotted about the garden - love this plant. I'm so happy that a huge petalled, purple clematis is growing abundantly in its new place at the side of the garden shed. I was worried about moving the plant; I'd been told that it wouldn't stand much chance of survival if moved! Thank you my green fingers. *this nursery rhyme is said to have derived from the time of Mary Queen of Scots. Mary, through her royal lineage, had more of a claim to the English throne than her cousin Elizabeth I. Quote Link to post Share on other sites
