More Canterbury Bells from my garden
I wanted to show you that this Canterbury Bells plant is giving prodigious numbers of belled flowers, from a tiny and hopeful beginning in a four inch pot. It amazingly survived a harsh attack, just before the flowers opened, as the stem was half way broken through. It looked like someone or something heavy stomped it, a raccoon? Anyway it survived the harsh attack and is flourishing.
Also I picked a bouquet for our kitchen table and took a photo of it also. Enjoy.
A few of you, my blog friends, say your climate won't allow Canterbury Bells, and I share that frustration when I see your own photos of your gardens with peonies and lilacs and forsythia, garden friends from my childhood in Wisconsin. I haven't grown those here in California, so must get by with enjoying your blog photos and with dreaming.
