My Apple Redlove has had amazing red /pink blosson that is just fading, i wish id photographed it lat week but its still stunning

And my Wisteria has blossommed for the first time too since planting about 4 yrs ago too, it has a wonderful scent

the cornflowers self seed around my garden but are very welcome

as does the purple fennel

and the shade part of the garden is filling in nicely too

its so exciting this time of year, i just love spotting whats coming next. I need to get down to some weedng but its all to come too, with peonies and poppies coming into bud

Lovely pics, I think selfseeders are great in the garden, however mine have gone a bit mad in certain places so I'm afraid some will have to go this year....

I love selfseeders, long may they reign. lol but I do have a lot of room for them to self seed into. After saying that it is beginning to become very close to overcrowded now. lol. Those pictures are great, love springtime and all the new shoots and flowers, thanks for a lovely blog. :O)

I love the Rosa Lutea - that seems early to be in flower - and the apple blossom is gorgeous. Your shade area is looking pretty too. how lovely that your wisteria is flowering at last. I've been waiting about 5 years for mine. Last year, I thought it would flower as it produced promising looking buds but then they all withered and died! No idea why.

Thank you for your kind words everyone. It's been a treat to share my first time flowering excitement with you all as my other half wonderful as he is, just doesn't get it.. ;) he doesn't have the gardening bug, which I'm kind of happy with any way as it give me total control...
Happy to share some self seeder seeds with anyone that wants some

My OH is not into gardening either, so I quite understand it is great to have like minded people to natter to and chat to on line, even if we do become addicted to the site. It is good to talk lol :O)

I think my favourite time is when plants flower for the first time, especially after waiting so long. The wait makes them all the more special don't you think?
