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 !
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 !
