This is lovely, Penny is definitely smiling! Wish I looked like that when I got out of the bath! Your tulips are a gorgeous colour they must look great with the forget-me-nots! I think your peach flowered plant is a Chaenomeles, or flowering quince, it's lovely!

Your plants all look as if they are doing well, especially the clematis, which has so many buds on it. It will be a lovely sight when they are all out.

Isn't it nice this time of year to see everything growing back :) Your tulips are lovely.
The one you thought was a pyracantha is Chaenomeles like Libet said.
Nice to see your pets keeping you company in the garden :)

thanks libet and hywel,i was sold the plant as a pyracantha and waited for the berrys,its got pretty peach flowers,does it grow big as i need plants that cover fences

15 Apr, 2011


Yes it grows to quite a size and is good for covering a fence. However it is not evergreen like some pyracanthas are.
It has big fruit like shapeless apples. They are called quinces. People make jelly or jam out of them I think. I never tried it when I had one though

That was a bargain buy cherry!

Pets are so cute aren't they? My puss Holly is always watching over me from a safe distance when I'm in the garden .... surely to make sure I'm not 'skiving'!

Penny and Tilly are cuties. Do they get along? Lovely climbers and blooms!

hello lainedru,tilly is 3 wks older than penny and they sleep and play together all the time,unfortunatly i think penny thinks she is a cat as i have three cats(satsuki a burmese and ophelia a main coon) and they do bully her a lot lol

Oh to look like Penny having just stepped out of the Bath, a real cutie.
You have a lovely choice of plants and the tulips are beauties.
