Definitely a winner for me this month. Artistic. Congratulation, Terra, to your style. Can you make sometimes a blog with details? It may be inspiring for many of us.

3 Apr, 2014

 

Perfect Terra....:>)

Hi Kat ... Thank you for your kind words !

This blog link is of my front garden three years ago ..

http://www.growsonyou.com/terratoonie/blog/14446-conker-invites-you-along-to-see-his-front-garden

There are pics of my front garden on lots of my past blogs, but I'll try to make another with current photos some time soon.

Thanks Wylie and Moti :o)

Some pictures just say 'jigsaw puzzle' to me and this would make a beautiful one, TT. Lots of interest and colour, brilliant :)

4 Apr, 2014

 

Wonderful TT.... :))

4 Apr, 2014

 

Thanks Gattina, Gee and Holly ... :o)
Gee ... maybe start the jigsaw with the orange pieces ?!

Hi Jent .. I'm glad you like the garden colours.

4 Apr, 2014

 

Hadn't thought of it before, but it would make a great jigsaw - and so much more vibrant and attractive than some of those "wahsed-out cotage garden" ones I've seen!

4 Apr, 2014

 

Lol ... and a special large-piece version of the jigsaw for those of us who struggle with their eyes !

4 Apr, 2014

 

lol do they do them in Braille????

But I'd go for a carpet-sized puzzle with teh same number of pieces, which would make each playing card size, at least!

4 Apr, 2014

 

What a beautiful picture of a spring garden.
My daffs & primroses etc are going over now - (they go so quickly!!) - & it's all beginning to look dull again!!

5 Apr, 2014

 

As always, wonderful. What a treat for anyone passing:-)

5 Apr, 2014

 

Thanks Shirlwhirl ...
Springtime is a lovely season, isn't it !

Hi ba...
thanks for your kind comment .. :o)

Thank you Denise, and 106900.

5 Apr, 2014

 

how long did it take you to acheive this look, TT? I mean, how many years have you been working on it?

5 Apr, 2014

 

Hi again Fran ...
This type of garden can be achieved in 2 or 3 years ..
I've just put a blog on GoY with more garden photos which might be of use to you. I hope that helps.

5 Apr, 2014

 

oh, thanks! dashing right there

it looks like a long-term project - but I suppose how much work one does in those 2 or 3 years!

5 Apr, 2014

 

Fantastic.I love the Berberis darwinii ? Everything seems to be loaded with bloom this year as tho' it was all the wet we had in the winter, or perhaps it was just the lack of frost? Even the wild Celandines seem to have bigger flowers.

5 Apr, 2014

 

Thank you, Feverfew ...
Yes, this springtime, some plants have put on an extra special show !

5 Apr, 2014

 

Just lovely TT!

5 Apr, 2014

 

Hi Migra ..
Thanks... I hope all's well with you :o)

5 Apr, 2014

 

Its gorgeous love the way you have twined the little lilac / purple flowers around the edge of your lawn.

6 Apr, 2014

 

Thanks 3d ...
that's aubrieta ... one of my favourites, if planted selectively, into a design.

6 Apr, 2014

 

I thought it was but I could nt spell it, lol it does look great especially with your different colours of it.

6 Apr, 2014

 

Thank you :o)

6 Apr, 2014

 

I hadn't even realy noticed the purply flowers, they harmonise so beautfiully and lead the eye so naturally. You are an artist, TT

6 Apr, 2014

 

Thanks Fran ... but I let mother nature take the credit ..
she does it much better than I could ever imagine :o)

6 Apr, 2014

 

lol the wisest artists know when to stop and let the *real* expert take over! people like me have still to learn that, always adding a bit more here, a bit more there ...

I've just noticed that the purply flowers, from this angle, form a question mark as they follow the cure of lawn and path. very quizzical"

6 Apr, 2014

 

Lol. .... Through the keyhole ..

'Who would live in a home like this' ? ;o)

6 Apr, 2014

 

eeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeek!!!!

6 Apr, 2014

 

Conker and Truffles and Crocus of course and not forgetting the little Robin.

6 Apr, 2014

 

Well done 3d ...
You win the prize for guessing correctly !
:o))) x

7 Apr, 2014

 

Thank you Terratoonie I hope the prize is to continue seeing fun pictures of Conker Truffles and Crocus also the little Robin in your wonderful gardens. :-)

7 Apr, 2014

 

Definitely :o) x

7 Apr, 2014

 

:o))) good.

7 Apr, 2014

 

Hi Terratoonie

This is absolutely spectacular ...... "Very colourful and cosy design". A wonderful array of colour and textures. I bet you look forward to spring each year. You must get many hours of pleasure, from your hard work.

Regards, Alan.

Thanks Pita .. Nice to hear from you. x

Hi Carole.. pleased you like this :o)

12 Apr, 2014

 

Wow that is some front garden TT.....stunning:-D

12 Apr, 2014

 

Lol I asked TT how big her front garden was, and she said "medium" - think I'd have to scale her plantngs down quite a bit to fit into mine!

13 Apr, 2014

 

It looks gorgeous Tt.

16 Apr, 2014

 

Hi Dotty, Fran and Homebird ..
Thank you for such lovely comments :o)

16 Apr, 2014

 

Stunning......wonderful orange really sets things off with a fizz.

17 Apr, 2014

 

Thanks Dorjac ... super comment :o)))

17 Apr, 2014

 

Terra, excuse me, if I am repeating the question once more. I wonder, what sort of flowers are those blue and violet carpets along the flower bed? Are they all Aubrietas?

3 Dec, 2014

 

Hi Kat ... yes ... all the purple shades near the edges are various aubrieta plants :o)

5 Dec, 2014

 

Thank you. I am just making plan for a new flower bed :-)

7 Dec, 2014

 

Bit late (2016) to say beautifully floriferous!
