EASTER WEEKEND

We are at the end of the Easter weekend, I love Easter but it was an early Easter this year so the weather was not good enough to do some work in the garden. I did some sowing in the greenhouse and the strawberry plants I replanted in the greenhouse a few weeks ago (I kept them in a pot last year) are now growing nicely and they are getting flowers !!

Remember my begonia Muddy Waters who started to bloom in December ?

THIS WAS TAKEN TODAY, IT HASN’T STOPPED FLOWERING FOR OVER 3 MONTHS NOW AND IT IS STILL MAKING NEW FLOWERSTALKS. AND LOOK AT THESE SWEET LITTLE FLOWERS !

I hope I can soon showing pictures from my garden, this Winter is taking too much time !!!

Have a great week all and thanks for visiting !

 

FIRST HERBS OF THIS YEAR

The first herb in my garden in Spring is Allium ursinum, also known as wild garlic, ramsons, bear leek and many more. Once you have it in your garden you’ll never get rid of it, in my part of the world that is. It is healty, tastes good and gives lovely edible flowers , not that I eat flowers, I can’t bring myself to it. If you don’t eat or pluck the flowers they will flower for a long time so you can plant them between other plants, once the flowers are done and have spread their seeds, the plant goes underground till next Spring. I have a part in my garden where they can go mad but I planted some in a pot.

ALLIUM URSINUM, certainly worth having in your garden, if not for eating then for the beautifull white flowers.

Have a great day !!

 

FINALLY IN FULL BLOOM

Finally they are in full bloom, I have been waiting for it for so long now as they have been in bud a long time this year.

It is such a beautiful day with the sun, the blue sky and the warmth.

The buds of my syringa  ( vulgaris “Beauty of Moscow”) against the blue sky, I love it ! But they still have a long way to go before they are in full bloom, I hope I will have many blooms this year. I always cut them all for inside as I looooove the smell !

Have a great weekend all and thanks for visiting.
