We are having some really nice Spring weather over here and today I took some pictures in my garden for you to see.

THE AUCUBA JAPONICA SHRUBS HAVE BRIGHT RED BERRIES AT THE MOMENT, IT IS SUCH AN EASY SHRUB, EVERGREEN AND THE YELLOW SPECKS MAKE THEM LOOK LIKE THE SUN IS SHINING ALL THE TIME, CAN ALSO BE USED AS A POTPLANT, IT WILL STAY A LOT SMALLER THEN, NEEDS SHADE

There is sooooo much work in the garden and in the greenhouse at the moment, I just don’t know what to do first as it is all urgent cos of the nice weather everything is growing very fast, especially the weeds. Tomorrow we’ll get one last day of sunshine and then we’ll get rain, I welcome the rain as it is dry at the moment but I hope the sun will be back soon ! It is so nice to be able to eat on the terras again and to soak up a bit of sun and enjoy the garden as it is comming to life again.

Enjoy your garden !

  1. Looks like your garden has really taken off on these warm days! So beautiful. My tete a tete narcissus are in bloom now, too. Their intense yellow certainly cuts through the gloom on these early spring dull days. Thank you for sharing! WG

  2. Everything is looking so pretty at the moment, fingers crossed we don’t have too cold a snap. Despite all the earlier rain things are drying out now and pots need watering so a little more rain might be useful.

  3. Tonight the kids are drawing daffodils in my art class. I will share your beautiful pictures with them. Most of my gardening is drawn on paper, so I appreciate your beautiful garden. – Sharon
