hydrangea bushes

I realised it’s been a while since I posted an update on the wildflower patch that we planted back at the beginning of this month. It’s been a tough couple of weeks as I’m really impatient when it comes to plants & flowers!

But I’m happy to report that things are progressing nicely… there are a few bare patches here & there but the majority of it seems to be coming along πŸ™‚

The Rainbow mix we used and the Cosmos seem to be doing well, whereas the Borage doesn’t seem to want to grow… we’ll just have to wait & see!

Once we remove the Daffodil leaves around the tree stump, we’re going to transplant the Cornflowers which are shooting up in the pots in the backyard.

Cornflowers are going for it!

I’ve also planted a row of Sunflowers along the back wall to make up for the patchiness!

And lastly, the pot of birdseed is also doing really well πŸ™‚

Think the birdseed may just be grass!

It still seems like it’s going to take forever for the flowers to come, but my other half assures me that it won’t be too long now! I will update again when I see the first bud πŸ™‚
