Oh it is so lovely up my garden. Here are pics of "good companions" mostly from bulbs my frend gives me when he changes his colour scheme. i put them all where I can see them from my kitchen, keeping each other company.
Another dry sunny day for us gardeners here in Bristol - not that I saw anything needing doing in the Bot. garden on Wednesday. It is looking immaculate for the Easter big opening which is a sculpture and Art Exhibition Weekend. That very day they were putting up a dozen or so brown signs so that visitors can find us easily and we had the news we are now on the route of the Sightseeing buses. With the long term forecast for Bristol being much warmer than normal for April this year a bumper year for visitors is expected.
Ah yes they are there to educate in all things botanical like all botanical gardens but being the newest one in the UK Bristol is also a beautiful garden. When Monty Don visits us in July his talk is called "Why Garden?" and I can think of no more appropriate place to give such a talk. Just to enter it at any season helps you to leave the cares of the world outside.
More goodies from the Bristol Bot. Garden yesterday.
In the Chinese Herbal Garden at the Bristol Bot. Garden yesterday.
In the Woodland edge Garden at the Bristol Bot. Garden yesterday. Thousands of anemones, daffodils, pri
mroses and crocuses still.
Supper calls so will edit the rest of my pictures tomorrow.
Helleborus argutifolius and a pretty pink one in among the bergenias.
Now the hellebores - from pure white to almost black and all shades in between.
Oh such a beautiful afternoon in the Botanic Garden and of course there were mind blowing things to see as there always is. i shall show you first the pink Magnolia cambellii which I fell head over heels in love with and even snapped its reflection in the lake.
