FB- you're not interrupting, you're joining in !

lovely coloured orchid - always gives me a real thrill when they flower again

Yes...the first orchid which I bought several years ago has just come back into flower and I am   really thrilled.....it's a lovely feeling isn't it chicky.

Flower Bird you are lucky, I have never been able to get an orchid to flower again.

I've signed up to photobucket and will see if I can use it next time I want to post a pic.

Fairygirl

Hi flowerbird-it's one of those photo sites where you can upload your photos. I think you can do stuff from your phone and facebook-that's an alien concept to me  though! I've just taken some of my garden ones from the computer and put them on it so that I can get them on my posts-it's difficult just now because this site is not working well at all for putting pix on.

Nice orchid!

Hello everyone, beautiful spring flowers

I love this time of year, everything is just growing.


 


 


Got these grape hyacinths on a whim last year, wasn't sure about them first but love them now, the tip seems to get brighter as the plant grows. This is their 2nd year

I do miss not being able to enlarge pics by a click, I'm not a fan of photobucket either

Lovely pics Hollie - your path is to die for !!  I love the muscari too - nice to have some flashes of blue amongst all the spring yellows.

Thanks chicky, started the landscaping last year and is gradually coming together

Gardening Grandma

Gorgeous Hollie Hock. That looks a lovely garden in a lovely situation!

Fairygirl

Isn't it lovely seeing everyone's pix!

Hollie it's so satisfying when you see something take shape isn't it? Gorgeous 

Don't have much to put on here as yet but might put a couple of pics from old house when I get a chance.

Thanks GG and Fairygirl, yes it's great when you can look back and see the changes.  Always room for some more plants

..interesting path, it makes the garden look extraordinarily large, as if it goes on forever..

The potty gardener

Hollie hock, like everyone else that path looks great. Isn't it great now that at last everything is starting to grow

I live in Weston Super Mare and i was wondering if it is safe this year to plant busy lizzies again, i love them and up until three years ago  when they all died off within a week due to a disease in busy lizzie plants i used to have lovely displays that lasted until late Autumn. Has anyone got any information about them as i can't get to know anything.

Hi Salino, thanks, it's being added to bit by bit

It's great Bev, all of a sudden everything is up, seems to be growing in front of your eyes

Hiya salino

I grow jack frost too.  Beautiful sky blue flowers right now

Nice picture of yours

Salino

..thank you, we're getting there...

yes this is a lovely plant isn't it..? although the usual Brunnera is just as nice too...

I think I prefer these to forget me nots which seed all over the place, lovely as they are though...

Sometimes it is the cheap and cheerful plants you are so happy, at least I am, in my large garden, to see again in the spring. They are a bit late this year, my bluebells but beginning now.  You can see the first peeping behind these Anemone de Caen.  Grape hyacinths are great for bulking up, like wise Euphoria robbiae which puts te zing into the pink of the heather and the flowering currant.

What gorgeous colour combinations Marion.  Are they all carefully planned, or happy accidents ?  I always look forward to your next instalment of photos - and those above shows exactly why
