I took a few pictures in my garden last week. My flowers think it is Spring but it isn’t, not really. I think Springbulbs are very brave ! The weather is still cold, stormy and wet wet wet, so it isn’t fun to work in the garden and there is so much work to be done !
But I have flowers in my garden !
YOU CAN ALWAYS COUNT ON NARCISSUS TETE-A-TETE, THEY ARE ONE OF THE EASIESTS NARCISSES I KNOW AND THEY FLOWER FOR A LONG TIME
I DON’T KNOW HE NAME OF THIS ONE BUT I’VE HAD IT FOR A LONG TIME, THEY ARE A LOT TALLER THAN THE TETE-A-TETE BUT THEY DON’T BLOOM SO EASILY
THIS IS AUBRIETA, I THINK IT IS A VERY CUTE LITTLE FLOWER, IT BLOOMS FOR A LONG TIME AND IT IS WINTERGREEN, THAT IS ALWAYS A PLUS
I HAVE LITTLE VIOLETS EVERYWHERE IN THE GARDEN, AS I HAVE MANY DIFFERENT COLOURS THEIR OFFSPRING IS ALWAYS A SURPRISE
SKIMMIA KEW GREEN IS LATE THIS YEAR, THE BUDS WERE THERE ALL WINTER LONG, I CUT SOME BRANCHES OFF AND PUT THEM IN VASES IN MY LIVINGROOM HOPING THE BUDS WILL BE OPEN IN A FEW DAYS FOR EASTER…….
AND MY AMELANCHIER, NOT YET IN BLOOM BUT ALMOST, USUALLY IT IS IN BLOOM BY THE END OF MARCH BUT NOT THIS YEAR
It’s not much but it’s a start and when the sun is shining it is Spring !
Have a great day and thanks for your visit !
HERE ARE SOME SPRING PICTURES FROM MY GARDEN.
FOR THE FIRST TIME EVER I HAVE A ROSEMARY BUSH IN BLOOM
MY AMELANCHIER IN FULL BLOOM, THE BUZZING OF THE BEE’S IS AWESOME
HEDGE LAUREL IN FULL BLOOM
SKIMMIA WHITE KEW
THE BEE’S ARE IN LOVE WITH IT. THIS BUSH HAS BUDS FROM EARLY AUTUMN TILL SPRING WHEN IT FINALLY FLOWERS
THE SAME SKIMMIA WITH BUDS
ONE OF THE EARLY DWARF RHODODENDRONS, IT IS ABOUT 20 YEARS OLD NOW AND IT PERFORMS YEAR AFTER YEAR AFTER YEAR
CALTHA PALUSTRIS (MARSH MARIGOLD) GROWS IN THE MARSH PART OF OUR POND, THE YELLOW OF THE FLOWERS IS SO BRIGHT YOU NEED SUNGLASSES TO LOOK AT IT !
WHITE FLOWERING PIERIS
There are more blooms in my garden at the moment but I’ll show them next time. Everything is growing so fast, especially the weeds, so there is a lot of work to do in the garden at the moment, I don’t know where to start as all jobs are urgent ! That’s cos of the beautiful weather we have had and still have. It is such a joy to be able to eat on the terrace again with view on the garden, the warmth of the sun, the bee’s buzzing….
Guess what I am going to do today !?
I hope you’ll all have a great Sunday ! Enjoy your garden !
We are having some really nice Spring weather over here and today I took some pictures in my garden for you to see.
THIS IS CORYLUS AVELLANA CONTORTA WITH BEAUTIFUL CURLY TWIGS AND STEMS
THE TWIGS LOOK VERY NICE IN A FLOWER ARANGEMENT
A COMPOSITION IN A TERRACOTTA POT, SNOW WHITE VIOLA’S AND SOFT PINK BELLIS PERENNIS
MY AMELANCHIER HAS A ZILLION BUDS WHO ARE ABOUT TO OPEN
THIS SMALL NARCISSUS “TETE-A-TETE” IS A GEM IN THE GARDEN, IT RETURNS EVERY YEAR AND SELFSEEDS ALL OVER THE GARDEN
PROMISING BUDS ON THE RHODODENDRON, I PLANTED THIS ONE LAST YEAR, I CAN HARDLY WAIT TILL THE BUDS WILL OPEN, THE COLOUR OF THE FLOWERS SHOULD BE FUCHSIA PINK
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 !
Today, Sunday the 2nd of February the sun is shining and I got my camera and went into my garden to take some pictures, what I saw amazed me. We have the softest Winter ever and a lot of my tender plants are still outside in the garden and now I noticed they have new growth, I just couldn’t believe my eyes !
THIS IS A FUCHSIA WHO IS ALREADY GETTING NEW LEAFS WHILE STANDING OUTSIDE IN THE GARDEN
THIS IS A SMALL TWIG OF MY FIG TREE AND IT IS ALREADY SHOWING NEW BUDS AND NEW FIGS
MY BUDDLEIA STILL HAS PART OF HIS OLD LEAFS BUT IT IS GETTING NEW LEAFS AS WELL, NORMALLY IS HAS NO LEAFS IN WINTER
A WHITE FLOWERING SKIMMIA JAPONICA WHITE KEW AND IT IS ABOUT TO BLOOM
MY WHITE FLOWERING PASSIONFLOWER WHO I PLANTED LAST YEAR IN SUMMER BUT DIDN’T BLOOM YET IS GETTING NEW LEAFS !!!
THIS PIERIS IS ABOUT TO BLOOM
OUR 35 YEAR OLD OAKTREE, IS A SMALL LEAFED EUROPEAN OAK, YOU CAN SEE THE SKY IS BLUE AT THE MOMENT
THERE ARE LOADS OF BUDS ON MY AMELANCHIER
HERE YOU CAN SEE THIS IVY IS AWAKE AND GROWING AGAIN
I am ofcourse very happy to see so many signs of Spring but…if Winter decides to pay us a late visite all this will get damaged, so far the weather forecast for the next 2 weeks is ok, about 7 C° during the day and between 2 C° and 5 C° during the nights. We did get lots and lots of rain so far this Winter, no snow yet and I hope we can keep it this way, please keep your fingers crossed !!!
Have a great Sunday all and thanks for stopping by !
Beautiful as always ! My amelanchier in bloom at last, 4 weeks later than usual ! This tree is about 30 years old, we have trimmed it a lot over the years. normally it is a bush but you can easily make a tree of it by cutting the lower branches off. It has never been in bloom so late in Spring, always at the 1st of April and occasionally a few days later but never 4 weeks late ! If you look at my blog I did 4 days ago you can see what the sun did in just 4 days time !
DON’T THEY LOOK CUTE THESE LITTLE FLOWERS !
We had 2 lovely Spring days with temperatures above 20 C°, we had lunch and dinner in the garden. Alas, today is cold and wet, 8 C° !!!! Can you believe this ??!!!! We needed the rain so I am pleased with it as the soil in the garden was so terribly dry. And my water barrels are now full again !The weekend will be cold and wet too so no gardening for me except for some jobs in the greenhouse.
I hope you’ll all have a great sunny and warm weekend full of fun in the garden !!!
