It was a nice day on Saturday - sunny, and quite warm in the sun, but with a cool breeze. I wandered in the garden, and there were little things that gave me pleasure, so I made a short blog from them!
The pansies I planted last autumn suffered all the snow and ice in the winter, but are blooming madly now!
There is one stray pink tulip that seems to have come from nowhere in a large pot of tulips I left in from last year. Its very pretty, and taller and earlier than the other tulkps, which aren't doing very well anyway!
I don't know what the name of these flowers is, but I call them Star Flowers. They come up every year in the little channel along the top of our patio wall.
Again, these tulips come up every year, can't remember when I planted them, but they both appear in May. They are such a lovely deep red.
I love the young leaves of my hosta. Its been in that pot for ages, but still appears. I try to keep the slugs off, but don't usually succeed!
The Decentra against the grey wall always looks lovely. It comes out early, and looks so delicate. Later on, when it dies away, a rampant geranium takes over there!
The Pieris has been growing in a big tub in the corner of our patio for a long time. I love the new red leaves against the white flowers.
And lastly, I love the smell of new mown grass! Mr. G wields a mean mower over our lawns, and probably doesn't appreciate the smell! But it is rather good!
Sorry I can't show you any more - nothing much is out yet. Hopefully high summer will bring a completely new look to the garden!
