Spring blooms in the garden.


By waddy


Just a few pics of things blooming in the garden just now.

This Forsythia was a new purchase last year. I was pleased to see it’s starting to flower

Magnolia just about to open.

Euphorbia a rescued from my sons garden.

Scarlet Emperor a gift from Bloomer

In the greenhouse, The troughs have a variety of lettuce seeds while the pots are sweet-peas.

I hear it’s going to be much colder this weekend, but never mind Spring has definitely started!

Happy Gardening

its a wonderful sight when all the spring flowers start to do their thing.
colder isn't a bad thing as long as it isn't freezing. some of the flowers will last longer that way.

Stoller; It's got one or two buds fully open now, but the poor thing is getting very wind battered. Is your Stella too?

Linda; Thanks!

HB; Thank you, it gladdens my heart when the weather has decided to return to winter, to see so much coming through and flowering.

Oh Waddy, you have some lovely colour in your garden right now. I love Forsythia, even though it's deemed old-fashioned according to a friend of mine! I've been gardening for 3 hours today, sunny but very windy.

Its hard to see how a flower can be old fashioned. Who cares anyway?

25 Mar, 2017


Exactly! Mind you, she has what I call a minimalist garden, more hard landscaping than planted areas. Each to their own ...

As you say Shirley, each to their own. Thank you for your kind comments and I love 'old fashioned' perhaps that's because I am lol! No gardening today as we've been out all day. (see questions) perhaps tomorrow I'll get out there :))

Lucky you, so much coming into bloom. I like the pot with
the Vinca??? Iam not sure what is in there, but like pot and plant! Love all the primroses.

Spot on Wells, it is a Vinca. Glad you like it :)
