Springtime gladdens the heart.

26 comments


Today it is mild, pleasantly warm and slightly sunny. It is a wonderful time of year.
These little corners of the garden bring me a lot of pleasure.

My husband made a number of these willow supports for all my ‘floppy’ hyacinths and tulips! The more he made, the better they got!

The jasmine in our porch is about to burst into flower, its heady scent gives me hay fever – but it’s worth it!

Longer days ahead to look forward to, it is lovely to see the garden really waking up.

Time for a reality check…….
Only hundreds of celandines to get rid of out there!!

Tomorrow perhaps?!

Those Celendines are such an invasive nuisance. I foolishly introduced C. Brazen Hussey, it is even in the grass now.
Those willow supports are brilliant, do you have a willow or did you need to buy them? You haven't patented the idea have you? Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery.

Siris, We have a willow near our pond but have to keep cutting it back because it's branches touch the bedroom window! As for the celandines, well....................!!!

I love celandines, they have never got too invasive here, think the soil is probably a bit heavy and wet for them to take over.

It all looks so pretty Wildrose, pretty pretty flowers. Spring has definitely arrived. :O)

Lovely to see the Spring colour in your garden ... :o)

Super pots there Chris and I love your plant supports! As for your Celandine, I wish I could get some to grow in my garden.

What beautiful plant combinations - its a real picture! I love your plant supports too, very ingenious!

Waddy really do you want celandines? I can send you several hundred if you like! (and not notice the difference...)

Me first with the celandines Stera!!
Little does Waddy know what she is wishing for!!

beautiful .

Stera, yes please 'though I can't guarantee they will grow!

17 Mar, 2017

 

Wildrose and Waddy send me your addresses. Not sure when will be the best time to dig them up - perhaps best to wait for the foliage to die back?

Such a riot of spring colour,Chris,and your Hyacinths look so pretty..and much further on than mine ,but they are on the way ! I love the willow supports that John has made for you,,what a great idea,and much more decorative than my little cane efforts and garden twine ! I like your Celandines too,but I don't think I will beg some from you ! Lol.It took me long enough to get rid of some creeping Jenny ! x

Stera, that lovely offer made me smile........I want to get rid of mine not gain any more! They are everywhere here and need urgent attention but when they have those pretty yellow flowers I haven't the heart to touch them!

18 Mar, 2017

 

I'll pm you Stera x

Well Wildrose it was rather tongue in cheek but perhaps they will be well behaved for Waddy. They are very pretty when they are out but we get more and more every year - the seed pods burst and eject the contents for far enough.

What a lovely patch of colour to get the gardening juices flowing.

Thank you Stroller, pity about the weather down here in Devon, wet and windy and thoroughly miserable!

Stera, we really do have them all over the place and they are so hard to get rid of. Hopefully Waddy will be glad to receive most of yours!!!

Just a few Stera!

19 Mar, 2017

 

Most? I would need wheelbarrow....

I just love spring......your garden looks beautiful.

Thanks Linda, it is looking a bit muddy at the moment!

Really colourful images. Our garden is only just waking up.

Celandine? They must be better than the wild Arum (Maculatum) that invade our garden. They are everywhere.

I love your OH's work on the Tulip supports! There's nothing worse than floppy plants to bring out initiative in gardener's! ;o) ... and OH's too :D

22 Mar, 2017

 

Eirlys - try crossing them with the variegated Italicum if they are so successful. I love those...

22 Mar, 2017

 

CORRECTION! I should have said in my comment above that there is nothing BETTER than floppy plants to bring out one's initiative... Sorry! Silly me I've had a blonde moment there! ;o)

22 Mar, 2017

 

I'm a brunette and I have many moments like that! They all add to life's rich pattern, especially in this house!!
