Well it gives me pleasure


I took the camera around the garden today and thought I’d share them with you.
The narrow border that I put in after we had widened the drive was intended for annuals. The year I dug it [18 months ago] I put in Primula, tete et tete, hyacinths and iris reticulata. Last summer I planted annual red salvia, lobelia and limnanthes. This spring all the plants from last spring are doing their thing again and the limnanthes have self seeded all along the border.

The view from the back door looking over the pond.

I bought these Hosta for £2 each and I hope to sell some on at the local garden mart in May. The proceeds go to the local hospice.

There are 2 varities, 4 of each one. No idea which ones they are though.

These are other plants I am propagating for the sale.

Same in the greenhouse, though some are for me too, but I cant just chuck material away I have to propagate pieces ;o)

I noticed the Camellia is breaking its buds.

A view across the revamped conifer bed. The narcissus is February gold.

I love snowflakes and this one thrives at the back corner of the house.

This is one of the woodland series of primula and it is in its 4th yr now.

These are Ice Follies that were a birthday present from my brother back in September.

Well that is all for now. Hope you like my bit of nature.

Your garden is looking lovely. I dk if it is because we have had an endless succession of rain and wind or because so many of us have not been as fit as we would like but seeing this explosion of colour is a grand tonic. You do work hard for your plant sales. I'm sure it will be very successful for you. I too like snowflakes and am pleased mine are coming on. I would show a photo if I could take one in focus but they prance around like demented ballet dancers.

You look as if you have been very busy with all your pots and new plants SBG. Our garden is on the rampage after a mild winter. Even the pear blossom and apple are nearly together and the tulips are in full bloom. 80 degrees today on the patio.ridiculous
