I can bit boast,,,my first ever Cypripedium is in flower :)
It was sitting under plastic bell cap,until thursday,i was so afraid that hailsones and that strong wind will kill,and same time again afraid that sun can cook it under bell.

Every day i say to my self,today i will sit down and write some journal for garden.ie,this is in flower and that,but somehow 3 weeks past awy so fast that i didn't feel them.I have part time job now,they ask me,and i agree,there they growing annual plants,job with flowers-job for me :)
At 12 may,because was raining here(no need to stay and watch plants in Liam's glasshouses),i got chance to go to my first rare plant fair this year.I did enjoy it,and kids to were happy there.Playground,maize...what more you can wish for :)
First i went looking for Deborah& Martin,found them and found Fran too :) I asked to Deborah put away for me one Digitalis illumination, and went for first run around,to check what they have what i don't have yet .Found Dicentra ''Goldheart'' at Mount Venus nursery.Next at Peppermint farm&garden got Bronze fenel(i loved how it looks in Rachel's garden),citrus scented pelargonium,and Strawberry mint for what i was looking for ages.And it really have scent like mint+strawberry,,nice one.
Runed in to Linda,who were busy getting saxifragas and other little beauties,i got there Lewisia nevadensis.Then back to D&M(Fran was still there)...and you know what i found there ,hiding between other bigger plants? Marshal orchid-Dactylorhiza maculata ''Kilmarnock'',,i was looking for it everywhere,not one nursery had it,,and look,,Terra Nova have it,,actually had it,i got last plant what they had for sale,,look how lucky i'm :))))I got there little heuchera ''Ginger Peach'' and Aquilegia canadensis too.
While mine people were busy drinking hot chocolate,i went for tour to look at rhodos with June Blake...Beautiful show!!!
