I was wide awake at 6.30a.m., so I got up and put the lounge curtains in the wash, then after I'd had my shower I went out into the garden to cut down the daffodils that had died off. I went to the gym for an hour then MWM and I had our lunch outside on the patio in the sunshine and spent the rest of the day reading and enjoying the garden. My idea of heaven.
I want to show you the lovely tree, full of blossom, at the end of our grove.
If you click on the pics they should biggify.
As we spent the afternoon in the back garden today I thought I'd share what's growing there. We have a Clematis 'Pixie' growing up a trellis at the side of our lion's head water feature which has just bloomed.
Here's a close up of the delicate 'Pixie' flowers.
Here's the two hanging baskets in the back garden.
Here's what's growing in the border along the fence between our garden and my neighbour's.
Forest Flame, Rhodedendron bush, and rambling rose. (left to right)
Roses, Daffolidls, Tulips, Lupins, Polyanthus.
Miniture Hyacinths, Acer and Mombresia nestling underneath the Lilac bush but not flowering yet.
These pots on the patio contain Mint, Basil, Marjoram, Parsley and Busy Lizzies.
And last but not least some close-ups of the Tulips, Daffs and Polyanthus.
