It’s nice get back to some outdoor floral photography. Mother nature has been slightly confused by the crazy changing weather and I only really got back out last weekend to see what #springflowers have #sprung. I seemed to have missed tulip season (maybe next year I will make it to the tulip fields in the Netherlands). Here is a selection of #bleedingheart #grannysbonnet #allium #bluebell #snowdrop (snowdrops are from a few weeks back) from my next door farm & gardens Airfield Estate #airfieldestate. I love the walled garden there. There is a little bit of texture added, but the images are pretty much straight from the camera!
I’ve just added another ice-cream cone flower to my portfolio collection 🙂
Today I learnt that even plants like tea – nettle tea, comfrey tea, seaweed extract. I wonder if they like mint tea too?
Pictures below show how to make plant tea using a rather large tea bag (sack!)! Beware the final tea is rather pungent…….
Thanks to Kitty Scully from Airfield Estate and Farm (http://www.airfield.ie/) for sharing her knowledge with us and passing on her enthusiasm for all things green over the past few weeks. I am pleased to report my plant trials (albeit on a rather miniature scale) are still going strong.
Wishing Kitty the best with her exciting new adventure in Cork……..time to turn those techies green 🙂
