Today we had our first snow of this Winter so everything is covered in a pretty white layer and my garden looks a lot better now than before the snow came.
SKIMMIA JAPONICA KEW GREEN, IN BUD SINCE LAST AUTUMN
SMALL LEAFED IVY
SPINELESS HOLLY J.C.VAN TOL (ilex aquifolium j.c.van tol)
EVEN MY DOORMAT LOOKS PRETTY NOW
There is not much going on in my garden at the moment alas.
I hope you are all happy and well.
With the temperatures we are having at the moment and the rain we have had yesterday everything is growing like mad !
THIS PICTURE WAS TAKEN 5 DAYS AGO (caltha palustris, marshplant)

THIS PICTURE WAS TAKEN 5 DAYS AGO (skimmia japonica Kew Green) this skimmia has been in bud since early Winter !!
THIS IS THE SAME PLANT TODAY
I am so happy that I can finally start working in the garden.
Have a great day and enjoy your garden !
The nice sunny Spring weather is continuing with now and then a good soft shower, so perfect for growing plants. I started to give my plants coffee, yes coffee, it seems coffee is just as good as fertilizer and plants love it, also your indoor plants so I keep all my coffee grounds, mix them with a lot of water and pour it on the ground under my shrubs and plants. I have only just begun so I can’t tell you yet how my plants react to it but I’ll keep you up to date.
I took some pictures for you from the garden a moment ago.
ARABIS, AN EARLY FLOWERING LOW PLANT THAT BLOOMS FOR MONTHS ON END, PERFECT FOR A SUNNY SPOT IN THE ROCKGARDEN
I WAS SITTING NEXT TO MY SKIMMIA, reading a book and drinking coffee, AND IT WAS BUZZING WITH BEE’S
AND THE BUMBLE BEE’S TOOK OVER MY LILAC DWARF RODODENDRON, THEY WERE HAVING A BALL !
HERE IS A BETTER VIEW OF MY DWARF RODODENDRON, IT IS OVER 20 YEARS OLD SO IT IS NOT SO SMALL ANYMORE
AND MY WHITE HEATHER IS STILL BLOOMING, IT IS A PLANT YOU HAVE TO SEE UP CLOSE AS THE TINY FLOWERS ARE REALLY PRETTY !!! AND AN EARLY ATTRACTION FOR THE BEE’S AS WELL.
I HOPE YOU ARE ALL ENJOYING YOUR GARDENS, SPRING OR AUTUMN, DEPENDING ON WHERE YOU LIVE. HAVE A GREAT WEEK AND THANKS FOR VISITING.
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.
THIS IS HOW THE PLANT LOOKED LAST SEPTEMBER AND ALL THROUGH WINTER UNTILL A FEW DAYS BACK.
Thanks for visiting !
