Soon it will be Easter ! I love Easter as it is the beginning of a new gardening season and…..easter eggs. Hiding easter eggs for the grandchildren and watching them enjoying looking for the eggs and finding some…they are 4,5 and 2.5 and they just don’t understand what is happening and I love to see their happy faces each time they find a chocolate egg !!!
I just finished decorating my easter tree.
I USE THE BRANCHES OF MY CORYLUS AVELLANA CONTORTA OR CURL HAZEL
I HOPE YOU’LL ALL HAVE A WONDERFUL AND HAPPY EASTER !!!
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 !
