Spring Garden


By maggy7


I think the months of March and April are probably the best months in my garden, it is the time when everything looks so fresh and alive

these are lovely little miniture daffs

this is a lonely fritallery

and my pear tree is ful of blossom

this stallata lights up the garden I only wish it would stay like this all year

I love these little viola

and the quince lights up the corner near the greenhouse

this crab apple tree is always lovely but may have to go as its right infront of my window and the path is starting to show the roots are starting to lift the block paving

my prunus spire burst into flower this week I just hope the winds stay away so we can enjoy it a little while longer


Tillys first spring

Tilly looks the picture of contentment...pretty soon she'll be chasing butterflies and blossoms as they fall off the trees in the wind :)

You've got a lot of things to do if you are going away from May-July....hope your garden behaves for you.

Im dying to get things in I have some morning glory/marigolds/lobelia/and 17geraniums to put in, and Ive pots of dahlias and a couple of pots of acidanthium to put out oh and I forgot the begonias! Ive put sunflowers straight in the garden for the first time I thought maybe they might just be a nice size by the time I get back!!!! or a nice feed for the birds and mice lol.
I dont know about chasing blossom Wistonlass lol Im having a job discouraging her chasing bee,s!!!!!!!! she even has started barking at them as if they have no right in her garden. If I can get through the summmer without her getting stung it will be a miracle.

Pear blossom is superb at the moment isn't it? I took some shots of mine today.
