Garden Bloggers Bloom Day – Feb 2019

My selection of blooms for February include a lot of flowers that were flowering last month.  It seems to me that spring flowers last longer than those in the summer.  I wonder if it is something to do with the temperatures or whether they flower longer to give them more chance of being pollinated by…

End of Month View – February 2018

I was going to say I shall be glad to see the back of February and hopefully the cold weather but it appears that it will be staying with us a little longer and I have the prospect of snow on my birthday. As you would expect the garden hasn’t changed significantly over the last…

Snowdrops

I have been posting photos of the snowdrops in my garden since Boxing Day but now is the time when the majority of the snowdrops are flowering especially the Galanthus nivalis and Galanthus nivalis ‘Flora Pleno‘ which are slowly but surely spreading through the borders. Many of my special snowdrops have gone over but there…

End of Month View: February 2017

I thought I would use my wide-angle lens to give you a better idea of the whole front garden.  The photograph is taken from the top of the driveway; the gravel path leads to the side gate as the driveway leads to the front door – if that makes sense.  The smaller border near the…

Above is a selection of some of those that are looking good this week. Interestingly the colours don’t seem as strong this year with Anna’s Red looking…

My Garden This Weekend – 7/2/16

What a glorious morning we have had today especially given that yesterday we had at least 14 hours of non-stop rain.  Having spent yesterday feeling sorry for myself with a bit of  head cold and a blocked ear which has affected my balance a little, I only went outside this morning to see how the…

End of Month View – February 2015

February seems to be ending on some sunny days which make a welcome relief after the recent grey and cold.  It was a delight today to potter in the garden without having to wear a coat.  As you can see from the state of the grass path it has been very wet here and the…
