Today was a lovely Spring day, not too hot with a bit of a cold wind but ideal for working in the garden which I did. I took some pictures for you to see.
RED TULIP, I LOVE THE EYE IN THE MIDDLE, THEY TOOK ME BY SURPRISE AS THEY HADN’T BEEN BLOOMING FOR A FEW YEARS !
ARABIS, THEY HAVE BEEN BLOOMING FOR A WHILE NOW BUT THEY GO ON AND ON, ARABIS DOES NOT GO UNDERGROUND IN WINTER AND I ALWAYS FIND THAT A PLUS
MY EARLIEST BLOOMING DWARF RHODODENDRON, IT BLOOMS EVERY YEAR IN SPRING AND THEN AGAIN IN AUTUMN, NOT AS MUCH AS IN SPRING THOUGH
CALTHA PALUSTRIS IS A SWAMP PLANT, LIKES IT’S FEET IN THE WATER, IT STANDS IN THE SWAMP AREA OF OUR POOL
I COULDN’T RESIST BUYING THIS FUCHSIA WHEN I SAW IT IN A SHOP….
As you can see it was a lovely sunny day and there are more to come !
Have a great weekend and enjoy your garden !
Today was a lovely sunny Sunday, ideal for gardening. There is soooo much to do in the garden !!! Cos of the good weather everything is growing fast, especially the weeds ! And since we haven’t had much rain for the past weeks I can’t keep up with watering the pots and all the new planted plants.
Ofcourse I took some pictures for you to see.

I HAVE ONE BIG RHODODENDRON IN MY GARDEN, HE BLOOMS A LOT LATER THAN THE DWARFS, I DIDN’T KNOW THAT AS I PLANTED THEM LAST SUMMER, I WILL TAKE A PICTURE WHEN HE IS IN FULL BLOOM
