ON A SUNNY SUNDAY

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.

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.

 

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.
