Whats growing in my garden in 2015


By sarahm


Hi all Goyers, I’ve been away from the site from a while and have missed reading the blogs and seeing the photos posted by you all, in particular Hywel blogs, Cottage Karen garden project updates, Scottish and Andrew R and Dotty Daisy plant pics, and youg daisy dee design inspiration. There is a reason for my lack of time spent on GoY, which is clear at the end of this blog!

These are just a few pics of my favourite garden plants in 2015 so far:

Rose for shade, might be A Shropshire Lad, I cant quite remember

Self seeding Aquilegia

Chrinodendron (excuse the spelling), not as fantastic as previous photos posted by I think Andrew R and DottyDaisy but I am happy with it. I have been taking more care to feed the acid loving plants in my garden and it has made a big difference to their flowering.

Camassia in flower, I love it but if often gets flattened by bad weather

Rose, first bloom of 2015, last year it was 9th June this year just a few days later in 2nd week of June

And the most stunning specimen I have grown in 2014-5. It needs lots of feeding, must be kept in the garden shade, can be a bit fussy about its position and condition and even needs tended to during the night…..

Little Baby Lewis Owen born 2nd May, at 6 weeks old, enjoying being in the garden with Mummy!

(you can see that Tigger and Pooh have neglected their baby entertaining duty to go smell the roses…)

One more shot of our precious baby boy, indoors this time as it is back to being less than 10 degrees outside….

Gorgeous what what I said too, sorry to be unoriginal.He's a little corker and looks as bright as a button. Hearty congratulations to Mum and Dad and hope you get some sleep!

Thanks all, he is certainly distracting me from the usual amount of time I spend in the garden at this time of year, the weeds will be winning shortly....maybe I can teach him to hold a garden trowel instead of a rattle?......

Congratulations ! He's a healthy looking child. I am pleased for you :) He'll be able to help you in the garden soon ... lol
