Spring in the garden

I thought you might like to see some pictures of our garden which is looking very colourful with spring flowers at the moment.

I have one small clump of bluebells and I was pleased to see today that the flowers are starting to open.


We have a lovely display of cowslips again this year all around the garden.



There are just a few early tulips open - most are still in bud.




The daffodils are coming to an end.


I love the gorgeous colour of the japonica flowers.


We have been working hard in the garden, mainly getting the veg plot ready for planting summer veg at the end of April. Poles are in place for runner beans and the smaller wigwams are where we have planted mange tout peas. At the far end of the plot there are several rows of broad beans starting to flower. Seeds are in for parsnips and carrots.


Now we are off to the UK for a couple of weeks - no doubt it will all need weeding again when we get back!

You'll have some lovely growth to return to Lin! Those bluebells remind me that we had them in plague proportions for a few years until we got them under control - the previous home-owners clearly loved them because they were in every nook & cranny!

Hello Lin,

I love your bulbs, always exciting to see them pop up. Your vegie garden is lovely, hope everything grows for you while you are on holiday. Children would love playing under the wigwam when the beans and peas grow.

Happy days.
Bev.
