Most of the others are just pushing their way through the soil! I was suprised to see this. :-)

Our pink one has been flowering for ages, but it looked so ragged I wouldn't take a photo of it...........

I love to find signs of new life in my garden. It's always such a miracle to me.

3 Mar, 2010

 

This seemed a miracle to me, as well! Everything is sooooo late this year.

Dd - has something been eating yours?

3 Mar, 2010

 

Yes the usual horrible beasties, cant win sometimes can we?

3 Mar, 2010

 

Nope. My 'Sissinghurst White' has vanished, too! I liked that.:-(( I've planted a different one called 'Dora Bielefeld' instead. It's supposed to be pink.

I'm always pleased to see the first Pulmonarias in bloom...we are still waitng at Kew.

4 Mar, 2010

 

Ha - Mine beat Kew!!! :-)))))

How about that then?

6 Mar, 2010

 

I'm well chuffed! :-)))))

My white one is just pushing up but it'll be ages before I see any flowers here. I think you must put heaters out in the garden, Spritz.

6 Mar, 2010

 

I'm sure she must, everything is so slow here, another frost forcast tonight, I keep thinking I am still living in the Midlands......this winter I will hibernate !!!

6 Mar, 2010

 

What a good idea - I was threatening to do that in January, but at least a few things are beginning to happen here now!

No - no heaters. How un-green would that be! I just go round with a hair drier. LOL.

6 Mar, 2010

 

Do you put little hoods over the plants then, Spritz? What a picture that paints, lol.

6 Mar, 2010

 

No - I just point it like a speed-gun, and they respond. LOL.

6 Mar, 2010

 

One your marks, get set ---------------FLOWER!

6 Mar, 2010

 

YAYY!! and UP they come! LOL.

6 Mar, 2010

 

I really must try that, my husband certainly would have me committed....!!!!

8 Mar, 2010

 

Are you suggesting that I am a crazy person, Dd? :-(((((((((((((((((

8 Mar, 2010

 

With a detached scowl like that, I wonder!

9 Mar, 2010

 

Try this - &:~Z.......better?

9 Mar, 2010

 

Verrrrrrrrrry attractive! LOL

9 Mar, 2010

 

Well - I am! LOL. Especially with a fetching hair-do like that! ;-)

9 Mar, 2010

 

Puts me in mind of Veronica Lake! Or Rita Hayworth! Or - go and have a look at http://www.retrohairstyles.com/

10 Mar, 2010

 

OK. However, I have short hair, so don't expect miracles, wil you!

10 Mar, 2010

 

You do enough miracles in the garden, Spritz - hair as well would be expecting a lot, LOL

10 Mar, 2010

 

To be serious - if I had long hair (which would look silly at my age anyway!) I'd get caught on prickly shrubs and so on when I crawl about underneath which I do quite a lot!

10 Mar, 2010

 

Take a photo Henry! Nothing wrong with the 'ageing hippy look' Spritz!

10 Mar, 2010

 

Who are you calling a hippy? Cheek! ;-)

10 Mar, 2010

 

I might be talking about myself!

11 Mar, 2010

 

True. Are you?

11 Mar, 2010

 

;-)))) Secret!!!

11 Mar, 2010

 

LOL.
