For the next month or so flowers will open on an almost daily basis in my garden ,that’s just the way I wanted it.My Spring Garden


This a new one to me this year rather like the colour

This is 2012 Sainsbury purchase £3.00 in a 3in pot have another different still to open


This is one of the largest groups of Corydalis Solida in the garden


This is as large as the next one is small you could grow it for the leaves alone


A real gem but would be lost in my garden so have it in one of my sheltered troughs


Another baby diameter no more than the size of a two pence piece there are two more buds but they seem reluctant to open


Hellebore seem to be lasting a long time and the blooms seem to get better


Used zoom for this it is all of twenty feet high


what difference a week makes should be full out by Easter Sunday.

Enjoy

Your garden is looking stunning but my favourite is the little narcissus Rupicola ssp watieri until I look at a different photo and love them all equally. That magnolia is magnificent.

It is inspiring to see your collection of beautiful plants, all being so well cared for.

I love the tiny white narcissus which is so very appealing.

Thank you and keep 'em coming please!!

Some wonderful flowers, I was pleased to see a small? white Rhododendron Williamsianum, we bought one from our garden in the Midlands it is about two ft tall and I think it might be the same as yours, when the rain stops I will pop on a photograph for your inspection.....loving your blogs.....

I take them with a camera as opposed to phone or I pad. Although I have a smart phone the pictures from it are not great. Camera is Panasonic DMC-TZ40 nice and compact and does a great deal.
The names are put on in my case using Photoshop also use it to crop pictures that often gets rid of rubbish I did not spot and generally makes for a nicer picture. Also use it to reduce the size for Goy .

Wonder if I can replicate the mountains of Spain to keep it happy,I shall try.

Brian, Let's hope we get a good summer, although I suppose the mountains in Spain would be slightly colder.
