31 May, 2011

 

What a feast of spring colour Terra. Best time in the garden, after a long winter. Then it's mostly tucked away for next time round. Aubretia is the longterm flower. Mine are just coming back into flower. They looked dead after the long drought.....but the rain has livened them up. Yours are magnificent. Jersey plants seem to have red ones. Not sure they fit in a spring garden. There are some up the steps I would like to replace with a wider planting and let the alliums grow through them.

25 Jun, 2011

 

Thanks Dorjac... I love the springtime ...
Yes, the aubrietas have perked up since the rains arrived ...
Nice to see the different colours...

26 Jun, 2011

 

Beautiful: tell me, please, what kind of flowers did you put there?

1 Jul, 2011

 

Thanks Katarina ...
These are mostly aubrieta and grape hyacinth (muscari).

1 Jul, 2011

pee
Pee
 

Looks goooooorgeous. Wouldn't like to come design my garden for me would you ;o)
What do you grow once the aubrieta and grape hyacinth are over???

3 Jul, 2011

 

Catching up lol.......I have never seen a prettier spring garden ever TT.

27 Jul, 2011

 

Thanks Pee ..
I trim the aubrieta back into tidy shapes, and I leave the grape hyacinths to die down naturally.

Thank you Dotty...
...that is such a very lovely compliment ... :o)

30 Jul, 2011

 

It is well deserved......

2 Aug, 2011

 

For sure, the best garden arrangement of this year, referring to so many reactions!

3 Aug, 2011

 

Hi Katarina... Thanks... a very kind comment :o)

6 Aug, 2011
