The year’s first flower

A rather fine plant of herb-robert (Geranium robertianum) has produced the first flower of the year in WBX.  It is the normal pink form although many plants of this species in or garden have white flowers

Overall, the box is doing very well and, as can be seen in the picture below, most plants are growing vigorously and well.  All the more remarkable as WBX has had no applications of fertiliser during the life of the project.  Perhaps the nitrogen fixing properties of the clover roots may be having an effect.

As I arrived today there was a robin perching on the box.
