Anemone blue eyes


Dodecatheon Media Alba always the first of the Dods to flower with me

Oh I do like that Rhoodendron ‘Crest’ but then they're all so nice. The sweeping up is a small price to pay for such a beautiful garden.

I liked that one too. You have a lovely full and colourful garden Bjs. I am sure someone speeded the clocks up when I retired last November,and never a day goes by without some project or other springs to mind.

You have some lovely plants there bjs. I too think the garden changes daily, this is why I constantly post new pictures. Hope I do not bore anyone out there too much though!

Never boring Bjs :) I like to see what you Goyers in the south have flowering,it means ours won't be too far behind :) My rhodys are just showing colour at the tips.

Thanks everybody i enjoy sharing them with all of you,I missed some yesterday sarah will see what i can do in a few days
Khayla your winter must seem very long if you are still waiting for spring.Jump on a plane down to Bristol the GOY members will soon brighten your day.
Heron R.Crest is more beautiful than the photo the light seems to reflect off it and you loose a lot, its one I can just stand and look at ,

It must lift your heart every morning when you go out there, Bjs - must be worth a bit of sweeping, (Worth it for us, anyway - your pictures are superb). What colour would you paint Susan - and why? lol

Lol .Wagger thats a thought my Acyrlics would do a nice Gentian Blue, blue is my favorite colour it would not be quite the same

Bjs you have brightened my day already and the Goy members do the same when I read the blogs I think I need to empty my pots and put new compost in .

I'd really like R Crest but my soil is too alkaline.

How about R. Curlew, Heron? - yellow and small enough for a container.

You worry too much about soil conditions Heron.....where there's a will, there's a way....:-))

I agree it would grow in a container for a number of years,I have a some in large pots but i would probably not show them in the photos next lot i will show a pot. lol

What beautiful plants you have...lovely photos...not a lot of colour in my garden at the moment as we are heading into in winter - never mind, only another 3 months and it'll be spring again...yaaay.
