Spring at last


It’s a beautiful but a cooler day than yesterday.
The grass has been cut and lots of plants are coming to life.
When I looked in the pond there was one lonely goldfish who does not look too well. I have left him to see what happens to him.
This is goldie on his side.

And these are a selection of the plants coming to life

These are my new fuschias in the green house.

Happy gardening everybody?

Some super pics there Marjorie. What healthy Fuschia babys. A shame I can't say the same for Goldie, he doesn't look at all well, poor thing.

does his scales stick out so he looks like a pine cone? if he does he has dropsy. sometimes they get better on their own other times they don't. Cant remember if there is a cure for it. Its an imbalance in the water regulation aspects of the body.

some lovely plants growing in there :o)

Poor old Goldie, he certainlyu doesn't look very well! Your little fucshias look great - are they new ones or your own cuttings?

No, he doesn't look too good, your fish. The stone/gravel area looks nice and neat and the pond.

Steragram the fuschia plants are new ones which have now been planted a few weeks. They were a bargain buy from Aldi's at £1.95 for six plants.
I have also ordered my geranium plug plants from Jersey growers. They all red ones which I 'm going to plant in wall troughs. There will be 72 plants in total.

Goldie appears to have died as I can't find him at all today
I've a feeling that he has been eaten !!
Thanks for your comments
