This Morning in the Permaculture Garden and Tunnel at Bealtaine

The storms continue and at times the wind abates for just long enough to get outdoors without being battered by the gusts!

The Sedums planted in and around the old fireplace are now thriving since the rain came…these are ideal for planting on green roofs and will tolerate drought and flood equally well.

Peachy Poppies are peeping through in all corners of the tunnel…abundant in its permaculture state!

The Nectarine tree is loaded down…some of these may have to be removed!

Self-seeded Valerian is blooming in the gravel around the cottage, despite the storms and rain!

  1. Stumbled upon your blog, cant remember how, but now I scan through my mail every day to see if Bealtaine has anything new. I am totally smitten with your inspiring permaculture ways. Thank you so much for sharing 🙂
    Wow! Praise indeed and many thanks for it Maria! I keep open garden for all who wish to walk the permaculture way…visitors looking for ideas, inspiration or advice on aspects of permaculture are welcome…FREE, (my fav word)!
    Best Wishes, Colette at Bealtaine Cottage
