It’s a question of having the time! I did intend to take pictures on Sunday but other duties (cleaning rat cages, mostly) intruded and before long it was Wednesday. Well, this afternoon I was working at home and at about 3pm, in need of a few minutes not looking at my laptop screen, I went for a little mooch round the garden with camera in hand. So without further ado:
The tomato plants, in their plant halos. They look very snug.
This primrose… we moved it into the new bed, and I promised Mum that when it finished flowering I’d split it and give her some. It’s still flowering and seems to have doubled in size.
The spiraea (moved from the bottom of the garden to the side) coming into flower.
Dwarf rhododendron looking happy.
The anemone is flowering. How amazing is this colour?
And we have blossom on the apple tree!
Lots of blossom. Seriously, loads. I’m not counting my chickens (or my apples) but it would be nice to get a few this year.
Meanwhile, at the front… a chirpy little primrose.
Scabious – this was in a pot until recently.
The peony starting to do its thing.
Tulips looking lovely (we have lots of tulips. I don’t remember planting them).
And one of our new Dicentra – this one is called Valentine.
So despite a couple of sharp frosts the last two mornings, and the odd snow shower, things are doing ok. Though I’l wait a bit longer before getting the cordyline out of the greenhouse or planting out the pelargoniums.
