I found them both fascinating and amazing

This looks amazing. The shrubs are blossoming well this year around here too. Hope the expected cold weather doesn't do too much damage to flora and fauna.

scotland has had a lot of snow linda, not quite sure how bad it will get here, we had hail today.
this tree was in devon, probably finished flowering now??

3 Apr, 2012

 

i think this one is a type of Campbellii Sticki, possibly M.Campbellii 'Darjeeling' or similar...

Lol ... ~ i think i'll have a cuppa myself now :-)) ~

3 Apr, 2012

 

good idea, think you have earned that!!

3 Apr, 2012

 

WOken up to 3 inches of snow (the sticky stuff) and it's still falling. This will put the plants back again and I've just been outside to feed the birds poor things.

THREE inches???? unbelievable!
it was snowing here but none has settled.

4 Apr, 2012

 

over night we had just enough rain to damp the surface, my water butt is like a desert :-(

4 Apr, 2012

 

it has turned to rain here, the heucheras dont look very happy but most of the garden needed the water!!

4 Apr, 2012

 

we've managed to get 1mm according to my weather station better than nothing :-)

4 Apr, 2012

 

oh dear SL, so you had to go out watering? we have had quite a lot of rain and some sleet, even hail.

4 Apr, 2012

 

i don't mind the watering it's just too dry now here... lets hope yours has soaked in well and not just run off...

4 Apr, 2012

 

i think it runs off into the lawn which is all moss??!!!
i expect if i dug down 2 inches it would be dry!!

4 Apr, 2012

 

we just had a sharp shower 2mm, went out with my torch and it's dry under the surface.... oh well better than nothing :-)

4 Apr, 2012

 

Just had a look outside this morning to snow still laying in the gardens but the roads are clear.

5 Apr, 2012

 

None here, the sun even came out for a while.

5 Apr, 2012

 

Wallflowers almost flat and I've had to support other plants. I suppose it was the very wet snow being heavy. Hopefully they will be ok

6 Apr, 2012

 

they are quite tough arent they, mine have survived the cold and are flowering but i only have a couple sheltered a bit by the front door??

6 Apr, 2012

 

I love Knightshayes especially if we time it right for all the azaleas and rhodedendrons. This one is very impressive! Lovely.

6 Apr, 2012

 

it will be spectacular when they are out wildrose
let me know when they are out if you can please!!

6 Apr, 2012
