20 Apr, 2010

 

Wonderful....so much colour and new life !

20 Apr, 2010

 

Your garden looks so nice Terra with all the aubrieta, lobelia(?) and what are the little yellow flowers? :-)

20 Apr, 2010

 

Stunning TT....do you add plants to this each year or do they just multiply and grow?

So good to hear Conker is playing today....you must feel so relieved...as must he! :o))

20 Apr, 2010

 

Thanks Janette, Greenthumb, BB/Jane, Richard and Pottygardener...

Richard the plants are aubrieta, and the little yellow/orange flowers are violas..

Hi PG.... Much of the planting just grows and flowers every year, but I do alter bits and pieces when I think I can improve the colour and structure...

21 Apr, 2010

 

Another stunning photo TT - I could sit there all day and not want to go anywhere ... !!

21 Apr, 2010

 

Hello Terry ...
You are welcome to sit and relax in my front garden any time... :o) Lol. xxx

21 Apr, 2010

21 Apr, 2010

 

I could offer a tent on the grass...

Your garden is sooo beautiful Terra, it puts mine to shame! You have done a wonderful job to create such a lovely display. :o)

21 Apr, 2010

 

Thanks Sandra....
Your daffodils avatar photo is very pretty :o)

21 Apr, 2010

 

Hello What a lovely garden you have, the colours are lovely, its definately got the wow factor and so pleasing on the eye far better than having to look at hard standing areas for cars, on the road where i live its sad to see all the front gardens disapearing for the sake of car space, when we bought our house twenty two years ago the front garden was hard standing, our first job was to clear all this away and make a garden, and now its a picture, i have rambling roses, ribes,kerria, sumac hebes berberris, and euonymous, its congested but beautifull, i dare say it soon will be the only front garden on our road.

21 Apr, 2010

 

I agree Julien, I am the only one in my close to have a proper front garden, but we can perhaps lead the way and hope some will follow! love this garden what a picture!

22 Apr, 2010

 

abundance of bright colour and perspective well done terra

22 Apr, 2010

 

Thanks Julien, Lemondog and Davey...
Yes, it would be a pity if too many front gardens turned into concrete ..
...we need the flower beds for inspiration, for our health, for our well-being and for somewhere to let the rainwater be absorbed :o)

22 Apr, 2010

 

Aubrieta are very common in the gardens around here. Did anyone see the lovely Aubrieta that Carol planted in her garden in Devon during the last episode of Gardeners World? I thought it looked really lovely!

22 Apr, 2010

 

how long did it take you to do this

22 Apr, 2010

 

Hi Balcony...
Yes, I saw Carol planting aubrieta.... lovely plant :o)

Hello Cristina...
I've made this garden a bit at a time. When I moved in, I really had no choice but to dig up most of the front lawn because it was overtaken by a plant from next door which spread fast by underground shoots. So I was left with a huge flower bed. Rather than return it to lawn, I filled it up gradually with rockery plants and flowers. :o)

23 Apr, 2010

 

Lovely photograph.

I am hoping to get aubretia to grow in the cracks in the stone wall that surrounds part of our garden, I love to see it tumbling down....so pretty....

23 Apr, 2010

 

Thanks Csarina...
Aubrieta looks nice tumbling down walls doesn't it :o)

23 Apr, 2010

 

Beautiful!

24 Apr, 2010

 

This looks so colourful - and so welcome after the winter we've had. I have worked outside all today and my face is tingling with sunburn!!!

24 Apr, 2010

 

Wallis seeds do a packet of aubrietia for 90 p, they do a mixed packet and a trailing type. I am gorwing the mixed packet this year. I had a packet of mixed alpines when I first started this garden five years ago and there where aubrieita in there when i dug the bed to improve the soil last autumn i thought i had lost them, then yesterday i was weeding the bed and i thought that looks like an aubrietia and it was, so i think now they are indestructable!

25 Apr, 2010

 

Thanks Andy and Jill and Fourseasons...
Some welcome rain today after a busy, happy, sunny day in the garden yesterday.

Hi Lemondog...
That's good to know your aubrieta has survived so well....
It will be interesting to see which colours you get from your seeds. I've been growing some seeds of Thompson and Morgan mixed aubrieta, and am curious to know which shades of purple and red are produced ! :o)

25 Apr, 2010

 

Yes I agree it is always interesting to see the colours when they bloom, it is a very exciting time, can't wait!!

25 Apr, 2010

 

:o)))))))

25 Apr, 2010

 

how did you start this of and how long b 4 it got looking like this. i want to do sum thing like this on banking .

27 Apr, 2010

 

Terratoonie:

WOW!!! You've out done yourself! : > ) I want a garden like yours. It's so colorful with all those beautiful flowers.

27 Apr, 2010

 

Thanks Delonix...
I'm not on GoY much at the moment because I'm working hard on a redesign of part of my back garden ...
... but I must make sure I don't miss any of your baby sausage tree photos. :o)

28 Apr, 2010

 

Terratoonie:

The baby sausage tree seedlings are growing very well now...I'll be posting more soon. : > )

28 Apr, 2010

 

Delonix...That's good news...

11 May, 2010

15 May, 2010

 

Hi Cristina... these aubrieta spread, so I try to take cuttings... not always easy...

15 May, 2010

15 May, 2010

15 May, 2010

16 May, 2010

6 Aug, 2010

 

Thank you Pottydottie... :o)))

6 Aug, 2010

 

Hi Terratoonie my friend and I were just admiring your garden we are new to this gardening lark and wondered what the yellow flowers were amongst the pinks and purples?

9 Sep, 2010

 

Hi Nana d...
I can't recall the full name at the moment ..
I'll put another comment below if I remember it :o)

9 Sep, 2010

 

Thanks Terratoonie

10 Sep, 2010

 

And this one . Just stunning!

31 Oct, 2010

 

Hi Roseberry.... I'm pleased you like this too :o)

1 Nov, 2010

 

Is the yellow flower alysum? it's hard for me to tell, bit late for Nana d:-)

3 Nov, 2010

 

lovely colours - nice flowers

12 Nov, 2010

 

Thanks Paul...
springtime is special :o)

12 Nov, 2010

 

certainly is - it is like having a whole new garden

13 Nov, 2010

 

I love the way you mix colors. Everything just seems to go together. Thanks for the inspiration.

9 May, 2011

 

Thank you Valerie...
Lots of colours to choose from in the Springtime :o)

9 May, 2011

 

What a lovely show! Wanted to grow aubrieta from seed this year. You've definitely given me more incentive. It looks so pretty so early on in the year, so colourful without the help of any bulbs which don't end up looking so pretty when the flowers are gone and they are dying back. Very good idea!

14 May, 2011

 

Thanks 1poodle11 ...
Good luck with your aubrieta ...
it flowers for many weeks :o)

15 May, 2011

 

You are so talented!

18 May, 2011

 

Thank you Kimberly ..
there's a lot of luck involved in getting the colours right .. :o)

19 May, 2011

 

wow what a gorgous display the colours are fab

22 May, 2011

 

stunning garden... as a novice would love to know what you have planted to get such a gorgeous display...

4 Jul, 2011

 

Thanks Whdebor and Lorraine ...
This pic is mostly aubrieta and grape hyacinths (muscari).

5 Jul, 2011

 

Hi Terratoonie,
What is the yellow n white one next to aubrietas on this picture?please. This is so beautiful..trying to copy this. Need your advice,thanks.

14 Jan, 2012

 

Hello again, and thank you for your response to my PM; this is the photo I was looking at - top right and half-way up on the left is what looks like grape hyacinth, but larger and more compact than I have come across before? Thank you for your time.

31 Jan, 2012

 

Simply incredible. An explosion of colour. Your photos and of course your garden are stunning. A real credit to all your hard work

15 Feb, 2012

 

love it, so colourful, aiming to get something similar in my little side garden, if i achieve half a good a result as your display i'll be pleased. Thanks for inspiration on a dull Feb afternoon!

19 Feb, 2012

 

Sorry, I'm only just catching up with the comments on this blog...

Shapla ...
I think you're meaning the alyssum ?
I hope this helps :o)

Avk ...
As far as I know, these are just usual grape hyacinth bulbs... I've had them for ages .. come up every year ...:o)

Psilo ...
Thank you... I love the springtime colours :o)

Maezymare ...
Thanks ... I'm sure your garden will look stunning this year. :o)

19 Feb, 2012

 

OMG amazing!!! how many man hours to you dedicate to your amazing garden. wish mine looked like that and from all the pics it is soooo lovely to see that the dogs are a massive part of your life as well :)

28 Apr, 2012

 

Hi Jewells ...
I couldn't do all that work without my doggie helpers ;o)

28 Apr, 2012
