Intricate purple star shapes make a ball shaped flower head of great interest to bees.

A productive wall, with fruit and veg growing up it and hanging on it. Green in essence if not quite in colour 🙂  Happy St. Patrick’s Day!  Photo taken at Bloom 2010.

May & June, Blooming Marvellous

Belated May/June post showing a couple of my favourite show gardens from Bloom, the Irish garden show which is on every year on the June Bank Holiday weekend.

This is a garden I really enjoyed, designed by Francis Doyle, Outerscapes.  It uses typically 1970’s colours and design features, and includes a wonderful caravan.  This brings me back to my early childhood and the colours and designs that were around then.

This is a garden highlighting the problems caused by invasive, non-native plants designed by Fiann O’Nuallain.  It is a subject that anybody who gardens should be aware of because of the abilities of plants to spread from our gardens and cause difficulties for native plants in the environment.

This is Cavan is a Bloom Postcard Garden, which is a new category of show garden at Bloom.  The small size of the garden makes it easier for gardening clubs to get involved as designers and sponsors.  This is beautiful garden, incorporating elements associated with nature in Cavan.
