Nope, never bored with your garden dD. The view through the arch is wonderful, and so is that black bamboo! I tried to grow it once, but really, it's not warm enough for it here. Yours is a great example! :) Lovely photos, all of them. I enjoyed every one.

Such a lovely garden Dd, Is your garden usually so colourful in April? In the second pic down, is that tulip or anemone with the forget me nots? Can't quite make out, but I love the colours together:-)

23 Apr, 2012

 

Dawn it is a lovely Euphorbia, so bright and sunny at this time of the year, grew it in the cold Midlands, so you should have no trouble.
Wannabe.....sometimes it is brilliant!! but most of the time it just passes muster...lol hanv't poisoned the family yet!
BA there are tulips, Hellebores, Pulmonaria and various Vincas, we try to have a colourful Spring garden......forgot to put the pic on with the forget me nots.....will add it now....thanks for that.

Lovely to scroll/stroll through your garden this evening ... has your weather been as atrocious as ours, Dotty? ... Wet and windy most of the time ... :o( .. Also, why isn't that bright yellow Doronicum chewed like mine is? ... lol!

Hi Shirley ...yes the weather is horrid, and getting worse!! slug pellets keep the Doronicum free from holes.....
