(One of the handrails (the upper one on the right going up from Calvert Avenue) is loose, most of the screws are out. Maybe they worked their way loose from regular use. I have emailed the council.)
The Verbena bonariensis have, along with all the Coreopsis and Anthemis, been in flower for several months now, adding a purple haze to areas of the Circus. It can self-seed readily, but likes bare earth, so I don’t know if it will here because of all the bark mulch on the beds.
Today I replanted more of the Bluebell bulbs back on the Circus, dug up and saved last autumn. Bluebell bulbs are not layed with a skin like onions and daffodils, but creamy white, and may be anything from the spherical to the ridiculously long, as in my photo.
