Results of Day 1 in the Dolomites.Fabulous, I mean fabulous, garden consisting of Ranunculus seguieri, and a few friends (Maertensia alpestris, Anthyllis vulneraria, Erysimum virgatum, Saussaurea alpina and what looks like some dandelions on steroids which I'm afraid might eventually take over). This area had been bare and was covered with straw and manure to prevent erosion. All these plants grow in the surrounding area.It was fantastic last year and is even more stunning this year. Cliff, you need to get here right away!!!
And some more from this wonderful garden, wish it was mine, dandelions and all.
Wow, just stunning... especially the Ranunculi! With all those erysimums about, I imagine the air must be scented too?
Calgary, Alberta, Canada - Zone 3
-30 C to +30 C (rarely!); elevation ~1130m; annual precipitation ~40 cm
Last year it was scented with manure (a smell I like), but this year you could smell the erysimums.
