Worked in the garden till i could do no more so took some pics.
Superb gardening weather. I found two large pots so two of my new magnolias have been potted up while the third is sitting in the rain butt having a long drink while I scour the pots for one big enough. i only paid £5 each for them from T& M so never expected them to be so big! I will plant them out in the garden in the autumn if they take off in their huge pots. Last of the potatoes now planted so next week I will have an onslought on the onion sets and shallots. I have to get my contribution to the Botanic garden Easter Sale ready for Wednesday too this week. It is lovely to have such good weather when you are so busy. Must find time to take some pics my garden is so lovely.
Brilliant sunshine and my plants are loving it.
Good morning everyone. It is brilliant sunshine in Bristol so will not be long before i am out in the garden among the jonquils and tulips. Have a great day.
Such wonderful weather for gardening. Lots of fruit blossom and I have fruit on my cherry tree and potatoes above ground. Fleece at the ready just in case. Bulbs still blowing my mind with their beauty. my friend has lovely tulips in his tiny garden.
First I had a great big whiff of perfume from my bulbs then I investigated the inside of my tulips now opening up in the brilliant sunshine we are having, then I opened the huge bag which the courier has just brought mw which is three very big magnolia bare root trees - Black Tulip, Denudata White and Yellow river by name. They are all having a big drink now before planting and I a needed one too.
That frilly red tulip was from Bloms bulbs so you might find its picture and name Joyce! Funny how labels disappear! I think foxes steal them as toys for the cubs in my garden. I have a whole sweet jar full of the balls i have found brought back from other gardens for the cubs all with teeth punctures in them! Given up gardening for today as I am hungry having skipped lunch. It was too warm and sunny to come in for any.
Still lots of miles of pleasure to come from my mammoth bulb planting session last autumn. I won £25 on Premium Bonds this morning which i will resrve for some bulbs for next spring.
Sun's out at last. we had quite a lot of rain through the night so should be easier to dig out perennial weeds this morning now. I like it when the weather co-operates.
Superb photos Joyce. Lovely heucheras.
