YELLOW AND BLUE

Yellow and blue, my 2 favorite colours ! As the temperatures have gone up, slowly but surely, more and more flowers have appeared. I still have snowdrops blooming in the pond area , it is mid April !!! But finally the narcissus are in flower, I just love those little bright yellow flowers ! Last year I decided to plant Chionodoxa, a small bulb with pretty blue flowers to go with the yellow narcis tête à tête and they look like a match made in heaven ! I also have blue hyacinths, they come back year after year after year, they live at the foot of my fig tree and they seem to love it there.

MY BLUE HYACINTS

As I was walking through my garden this morning I noticed some frog spawn in the pond!!! So we are going to have baby frogs ! We always have lots of frogs in the garden and I like it, they eat a lot of snails and  insects so I should say ; the more the merrier ! It is fun to see the egg’s grow and turn into little frogs.

Today our weather forcaster promised us 23 C°, it is now almost noon and it is about 15 C° with   a dark grey sky, so if we want to reach that 23 C° the sun must come out of hiding ! People are all very excited over here as it will be the first nice warm day of the year, many rushed to the seaside to catch that first sun and others ran to their butcher as they planned their first barbecue ! I did neither as I want to do some work in the garden.

I hope there are lots more sunny days to come !!!!!!

I hope you all have a great and sunny weekend  !!!!

I AM ALREADY LOOKING FORWARD TO SPRING !

I bought some  Spring bulbs a while ago and I am anxiously awaiting their first signs of life. I already have lots of bulbs in my garden but you can’t have enough of them can you ?!

The first bulbs to bloom are the snowdrops in January, the middle of Winter, how brave !!! Then the crocusses appear in February, after that it is time for the narcissus, the muscari’s, the chionodoxa’s , then the rest follows. I am always excited about it and looking for the first signs of their appearance.

ALLIUMS

WHITE MUSCARI’S, I HAVE LOTS OF BLUE ONE’S TOO

CHIONODOXA’S, LITTLE BLUE STARS, AREN’T THEY BEAUTIFUL ?!!!

CROCUS, ONE OF SEVERAL I HAVE IN MY GARDEN

AND MORE ALLIUMS

Lots to look forward too. I hate Winter, Spring can’t come soon enough for me, alas it won’t be for tomorrow, with a bit of luck Spring will start at the end of March but it can take a lot longer, we can have night frost untill mid May !!!

Have a great day all and thanks for stopping by ! Enjoy your garden !
