A beautiful Sunny day today just had to get out in the garden, it was a little chilly but I wrapped up warm and armed with my camera out I went.

So much colour and new growth everywhere, I had barely stepped foot outside when I had a little visitor!"

Dovey called to say “I Love You”

I DID enjoy it Carole! And you've just renewed my excitement for spring and for my new garden! I've been scarifying today, and it will be a few more days work to get that done. But it's wonderful to be out there with the birds and the spring flowers! Just perfect. And soon we will be in April, which is only one month before my favourite month of May! :))

I enjoyed my wander around your garden Carole and isn't it nice when one has a feathered friend for company, lots of good colours, everything always looks better when glowing in the sunshine even if its a tad chilly as we stand and admire.......

26 Mar, 2014

 

Thank you Bathgate, spring is my favourite month in the garden everything looks twice as colorful and is twice as welcome after the drab winter months, a little sunshine makes such a difference and the Crocus in particular shine out in the sunlight;0)

Hi Sandra Im pleased to hear you have added my blog to your favourites, if I forget the name of any of the plants you will be able to yell me lol
Been to the hair dressers this morning then I pricked out lots of seedlings, needless to say my hair looked like a birds nest when I had eventually finished! it was chilly outside, but another job out of the way I also planted a few more seeds Rudibeckia [dwarf] and Penstemon [a glutton for punishment arent I.]You know me I will find somewhere to put them all or send them all round to you lol

26 Mar, 2014

Your garden is looking great - very colourful and I really like the little rockery area, especially the robin watching over it! thanks for the stroll :)

26 Mar, 2014

 

Thanks Scottish I made the rockery in the memory of my little Scottie Dog Polly and it will always be one of my most favourite places in the garden, glad you like it too;0)

26 Mar, 2014

 

How lovely to see you with Dovey ... I`ve so enjoyed my walk first up those very impressive steps leading to some great spring planting and your little robin that had a makeover by you last year. The surprise pink Helebores
are a delight and so is the new standard Ilex your OH has very good taste.

26 Mar, 2014

 

Thanks Stroller for your lovely comments and fancy you remembering the Robin makeoverlast year [he never seems to get any older not like me, I might try one on myself this year] lol

26 Mar, 2014

 

A lovely stroll round your garden Pansy, thank you. The pink hellebore is on my wish list - I got a bit jealous when I saw that photo!
Simbad I have some small self seeded euphorbias - I don't think they are Fireglow but they are very similar. PM me if you'd like one.

26 Mar, 2014

 

I love your garden Carole, it's looking wonderful and what a lovely memorial your rockery is. I would love a tame(ish) dove and now you have the their babies to look forward to. That photo of you with dovey is priceless, how did they become so tame? All I have is their fat cousins, wood pigeons, and they're not so welcome even though they're cute:-))

27 Mar, 2014

 

Thanks Steragram pleased you enjoyed your stroll;0) I dont remember planting thePink Helibores but whatever way the got into my garden they are Very Welcomel;0))

Hi BA The doves have been coming for a few years now, I started by putting a little dish with nuts in it on the patio and always called out their names, after a while as soon as they saw they came flying around, they then got very brave and started sitting on the patio table as I worked there, now I always put their dish there, its safer and keeps away the Woodpigeons! I have seen quite a few generations of babies who dont seem at all frightened and come with their parents;0))

27 Mar, 2014

 

Carole, your Spring flowers are a sight to behold! So much colour in there ... love the standard Ilex and the photo of Dovey is wonderful ... don't seem to get Collared Doves in my garden any more :o(

27 Mar, 2014

 

Hi Shirley So pleased you like the garden and of course Dovey too, hope all is well I will you a p.m laterxx

27 Mar, 2014

 

What a lovely stroll around a very lovely garden! :-))

27 Mar, 2014

 

All looking lovely in your garden, Carole. I love the pink hellebores too and all the 'bits and bobs' - chimney pot, fountain, bird feeders etc. Such a nice idea to make the rockery in Polly's honour.

29 Mar, 2014

 

After spending some time working in my garden today I felt really tired but, having had a wander round your lovely garden, I feel really invigorated and inspired to continue with my 'makeover'. Really enjoyed seeing it all. I have just added Harlequin to my garden too - great minds think alike :)

29 Mar, 2014
