FINALLY

I have been waiting for many months to see this one in bloom ! The buds were there for almost 6 months !! But with the nice Spring weather we have been having lately the flowers finally came out of hiding and they smell nice, the bee’s love it, the whole shrub is buzzing. What an awsome plant this one ; Skimmia Japonica  Kew Green.

THE GARDEN CHANGES EVERY DAY.

It very much feels and looks like Spring at the moment and the garden is comming to life rapidly but the forecast is that we’ll get another Winter period in a few days time so I better enjoy it while I can. I finally started working in the garden and it feels good, I haven’t been able to do much for the last 2 years what with my broken wrist who turned out to be wrongly handled followed by my husbands illness and then my wrist operation…. but now I am ready to start again. And believe me there is a LOT to do !!

I took some pictures for you yesterday.

WHAT’S IN BLOOM IN MY GARDEN TODAY

Not much but it is a start. We had a long cold and wet Winter and it is not over yet but plants are starting to grow, buds are getting bigger, unfortunately weather forecasters say we are not going to get nice Springweather for at least a forthnight. I hope they are sooo wrong about that !!!

I have only 2  bloomers at the moment.

THIS IS SOOO TRUE !

It’s time to whip out your gardening gloves because not only are digging and weeding great exercise, a good stint of gardening boosts mental health too.
