I hope you are all having a Happy Easter!


I have had most of this Easter weekend seeing the sunshine so join me for another walk round my garden.
So much more in flower now!

After being disappointed for so many years in my white camelias, I decided to treat myself to a red one.

These Doronicums started flowering quite early this year.

I just love the Welsh Poppies!

Ameanchier, one of my favourite trees just about to come into flower.

And last but not least the Spirea Snowmound!
Enjoy the rest of the weekend and not too many Easter eggs! lol

Spring has come to your garden Rose, so many plants in flower, Love your new Camellia and Acer there.
The pigeons enjoy my Doronicums, so I'm only seeing the centres!

Glad you have had a sunny Easter Rose! We have had some sunshine but quite a lot of heavy showers too!!
Your plants are looking very happy

Amelanchier is one of my favourites too and I really like your Spirea at the end. So many pretty spring colours in your garden. Hope the good weather continues.

Garden looking lovely Rose, nice colour on the camelia flower, my camelia's have been strange this year, the one out the front garden has not yet flowered and the one out the back has masses of flowers, normally other way round, starting to get a bit of life in the garden now but in the middle of replacing 5 6ft fence panels and some posts where I am having to dig the old concrete up, notice not as agile as I was when done them last time, :) :)

Sunshine and showers (well, hail actually), this weekend. Your plants look mor advanced than mine, Rose. All looking good.

Thanks Seaburn. It does make you feel better when spring flowers are here.
And lovely to have sun at last!
Thank you Sheila.
Hello Janey, yes it certainly has at last!
Such a shame about the Doronicums.
Thank you Paul.
Hello Chris, hopefully it will get drier for you soon!
I love the Amalenchiers and used to have six down the path at Willow Cottage.
Thanks Karen. It is just starting to get more showy now, but being next to the hedge needs to get a bit taller so that it stands out. I couldn't find anywhere else in the garden to put one.
Oh I am sure you will be able to do that job Davey..once you get stuck into it.
There are quite a few things that I could have done easily a few years ago, but not now although I do have a go.
Strange about your camelias and I have to wait a couple of years before mine get a lot more flowers.
Thanks Ange. I wonder why that is!

A wow from me, Rose! You have a lot of pretty and glorious colour there!!!! It sure was a lovely Easter weekend, it definitely feels like Spring has sprung in to action now! Your camellia is so vivid!!! Quite a perfect purchase too!

3 Apr, 2024


Thanks Kate! It was a surprise to me as I hadn't been able to go out in the garden for quite a while due to a nasty virus.
I was quite pleased with the Camelia as it was only £7.99!

I'm pleased you're over the nasty virus, Rose!!!! In time to enjoy the beautiful colour in your garden too.
The camellia is definitely an all rounder, looks pretty perfect with a perfect price!

Thanks Kate! I just need it to stop raining now!
