In the garden

In amongst the continuing-with-Winter-weather Spring, we’ve had a couple of glorious days.  The plants in the garden are defying the grey cloud, cold and rain; they know it’s supposed to be Spring.

I planted the sweet peas early and they’re flowering early.  Taking advice on board, I’ve been cutting them and have already had several gorgeous arrangements, their scent filling the house flowers have blossomed on cuttings from last yearmy poor neglected pots have self sewncolour is appearing in unexpected spotsthese daisies sway in the breezes as I watch them from my seat in the family roomthe creeper on the wall of next door’s garage is in full bloomthe white azaleas out the front look gorgeousand we’ve had the delightful surprise of the rarely flowering red one in amongst the white the silver birch seemed to come into leaf from one day to the next blue bells are everywherethe pink daisies out at the front fence look so cheerful and bright (I caught a lady taking photos of them on her phone the other day!)a rogue golden genista has sprung up and is also in full bloomaccompanying these daisies at its feet; I love their spoon-like petalsThe whole garden desperately needs some weeding and attention, but I’m sure that will happen………sometime.  Meanwhile I’m just enjoying it!

How’s your garden looking?

    You’re going to spring and we’re going autumn. So only beautiful colors in the trees and some flowers left of summer. I like the seasons so much!

  3. It looks wonderfully lush and springlike – you don’t want it too tidy!

    It’s just about winter here so I spent Monday morning cutting down all my plants and pulling out the wilted annuals – the garden is all cleaned out now and not a flower in sight so I’m really enjoying yours this morning :0)

    Thank you for such glorious photos – they have really cheered me up! Malcolm has been busy putting our garden to bed for the winter, cutting the grass for (hopefully) the last time, and doing some autumn pruning.
