Blooming Spring


We have had a lovely warm Easter but now it has turned quite cold. Our garden has come to live with a variety of plants.
I am now going to concentrate on my hanging baskets and tubs. I have bought a new stone pedestal but I want to give the centre some more height but I’m having difficulties choosing an appropriate plant. Has anybody got any suggestions please.

Hope you like these photos.

And finally we are now waiting for the rain to fill our new water butts as the garden is very dry.

Looks like we'll be getting a fair bit of rain soon. I recently connected up a Wilko's water butt, the sound of the water pouring into it from the downpipe was daftly gratifying☺ Wish I had room for two!

Your garden is beautiful Marjorie, well loved and well cared for :)
I hope you find a nice plant for your pedestal. I think something trailing may look nice in it.

I love the slim water butts and like you I am waiting for the rain to fill mine. Two of the large tanks were emptied of the sludge and leaves in the bottom, cleaned and waiting for rain today, but it didn't arrive! More promises for tomorrow from the weather people, perhaps it may arrive this time.

I don't know how wide your pedestal is Marjory, but would it take a pot which is big enough to add a centre plant and then a trailing plant around it ?

Your garden and the photo's are lovely Marjorie, just realised that I often miss your blogs and end up working backwards through them, sorry about that, I just realised you weren't in my favs so wasn't getting notifications, rectified it now, lol...
