Things in the garden


Had a leisurely afternoon browsing around the shops, Poundland and Wilkinsons especially where I picked up a couple of useful bits for the greenhouse and a few bulbs, well fifty actually, all in the one pack. In it there is 25 Oxalis, 2 Lilium `Butter Pixie`, I Dahlia `Firebird` (gorgeous!), 20 Ranunculus and 2 Begonia `Non Stop Red` all in one pack and all for £3.97 AND a Day Lily for just £1.98. I think I heard Jim mutter something under his breath but I chose to ignore it, he isn`t as enthusiastic as me about gardening and is happy to do the donkey work, or maintenance as he prefers to call it…lol!

Just a few photos of things in my garden.

Does anyone know which variety of Daphne this is? I can`t find the tag and can`t for the life of me remember what its called.

This is my collection of compost which is growing by the minute…well every few days at least!

My small collection of alpines that I use to fill in the gap between the trellis and the gardenshed

This photo didn`t do this Hellebore justice, its a beautiful colour and will look lovely once its fully in bloom.
