Very short blog because ...

… I’ve just been talking to Kate about power-washing, to Lindak about a dwarf Azalea, and Eileen (Seaburngirl) about the survival of Hepatica nobilis.

So a transformation after OH has washed the garden!


Mini “dwarf” Azalea (I’m thrilled to see it flower)


My Hepatica has survived, but shrunk! Can you see it?!

Happy cuttings in the greenhouse

A bit chilly today, but looking forward to a warmer week with some sunshine to make us smile :)

That was quick, Sheila!!! Both OH and I are impressed with his power washing skills! All looks pristine, immaculate and like brand new!!!
The azalea is a pretty pink isn’t it! I do love the moss underneath, gives it a real touch of the Japanese style.
I can see the little Hepatica flowers too, pretty little things that they are..hoping it grows again for you..
Your greenhouse is filled with lovely healthy cuttings too!!!
Yes, we’re all looking forward to a few days of glorious warm sunshine!

Oh I say !!!.... well done hubby, now I have "Follow the Yellow Brick Road" in my head , lol..
I love your little Azalea and yes I can see the pretty Hepatica, keeping an eagle eye on the temps in my greenhouse Sheila as I have lots of seedlings coming through, I had turned the heater off but its still in situ just in case, hubby keeps assuring me that its going to warm up next week, sigh !!..fingers xx Mother Nature is aware of that and cooperates.....

That looks immaculate and the plants are coming on well. All that pristine paving - Wow! Not a sign of a Peacock or Goose having been about as there is in my garden, I won't elaborate on that I am sure you can work it out.

It all looks very spick and span, Sheila, good as new. Clever OH. The azalea is a pretty strong pink and the hepatica a nice blue.
I hope your cuttings continue to grow well. Do you homes for them all? I grow without planning then wonder what to do with it all!

Thanks Sue, Honey and Ange. Yes, for once I do have a plan, but reserve the right to change my mind ... πŸ™‚.

Each brick in your path really stands out now and the whole effect is really beautiful.
As you know I loved it from the very beginning!!

All looks so lovely Sheila. Love your pink Azalea. Kudos to your OH for job well done.

this a wonderful piece of work by OH, garden looks lovely. Some years the hepatics get bigger then recede another time.

Many thanks Chris πŸ™‚.

Thank you to you too Klahanie ... yes, I’m truly grateful to him!

Oooh we crossed - thanks Eileen, and for your knowledgeable comment. How strange, I’d never heard of that happening before.

Thank you Paul πŸ™‚.

Sheila, you mentioned an addition to the Karcher pressure washer that prevents getting soaked...did you come back about it or have I just missed it?

29 Mar, 2021

 

I did put more details on Kate’s blog about lawns (hopefully!). Oh no, it was Blossoming Bund!

My goodness Sheila, that is looking wonderful! What a great start to Spring in your garden, love the dwarf Azalea and the Hepatica too.

Thanks so much Shirley πŸ™‚.

Wow - are you charging admission Sheila? It looks fantastic.

Sort of Sue ... not really πŸ™‚. Most visitors bring a plant, seedling or cutting and they often receive something in return πŸ™‚. Thanks for your comment!

Paulinthemix ... I should have thanked you for the word β€œelegant” ... love that description of the garden! πŸ™‚.

I love your garden Sheila especially the path!

2 Apr, 2021

 

Thank you Rose... I do love paths because they β€œlead the eye” πŸ™‚.

Nice selection of pics ,realy like the curved path to make such difference !!

3 Apr, 2021

 

Thanks Mossy ... we like the path too! I think an β€˜S’ shape seems to make a garden look bigger πŸ™‚.

Lovely jet-wash results, Sheila. Somehow I must find the energy to do mine... but it is a warm weather task for me.πŸ™‚

Thank you Terra ... yes, don't do such an energetic job until you feel a lot stronger. A little at a time perhaps, like my gardening!
