Snowdrops with "Fly Agaric"


By Siris

Snowdrops with "Fly Agaric" (Galanthus nivalis (Common snowdrop))

Painted my terracotta mushroom last week in Fly Agaric colours. Didn't want the frost to crack it.

Looks good with the snowdrops :-)
I ve been on my hands and knees all day splitting snowdrops really need a soak now.

Thanks simbad, have a fragrant soak, you deserve it. Think how the wood will look next year, a carpet of snowy white. Ps Your Carex "Frosted Curls" sits opposite this paving slab.

That's what I keep telling myself Sirius still several huge clumps to split but filled a couple of areas that were a bit bare so yes it'll all be worth it next year, also found lots of hellebore seedlings to move around when they've grown a bit :-)
All your plants are sprouting in the greenhouse and pleased to say the codonopsis has little red buds poking through, in the process of sorting out a border that I stupidly planted soapwort in omg the stuffs grown into everything !!! we live and learn, when I make sure it's all out I'll be planting lots of your plants in there.

That's excellent about the Codonopsis, was a bit lacking in root as was the Clematis "Etoile Violette". Your Daylilies are starting to show green, slugs are appreciating that!
Yes, some plants outgrow their welcome. I am having a purge on underplanted bulbs, Alliums and now Ipheions.

The clematis has new leaves opening too :-) its in a pot at the moment but want to plant it to grow through a viburnum tinus to give it a bit of colour later in the year, trouble is the viburnums huge and needs a drastic prune it looks so lovely at the moment though so waiting till its finished flowering.
Glad the daylilies are growing, the slugs are having a field day with last year's seedlings in pots here but seem to be leaving the ones in the ground alone.

Thanks Hb, have 2 more terracotta toadstools, which will need repainting sometime. More Agarics or a different paint scheme?
