Himalayan Blues and the Barren Bank

The Rev Ruth Kershaw is one of our best on-train-guides and a very lovely lady too.   When she saw our barren plot of sloping garden she decided to give it her green fingered touch.   Frequently she comes down from Carlisle bearing gifts of plants, either from her garden or from gardening friends.

This April she presented us with three Himalayan Blue Poppy plants from a grower she knows.   These plants can be tricky and people have waited for years for them to flower.   Ruth must have blessed them for they established themselves straight away and are in flower already with masses of buds waiting to burst open.

Our barren bank is really coming on spectacularly well:
