A PEEK IN MY GARDEN

As we get warmth and rain everything is growing like mad and flowers are opening every day.

VIBURNUM OPULUS

FUCHSIA,  it is nameless as the shops just sell them under the name “fuchsia”, it is frustrating as I don’t know if it likes shade or sun or if it is winterhardy or not.IMG_2919.JPG

SYRINGA VULGARIS BEAUTY OF MOSCOW, the flowers are snowwhite but the buds are a smokey lilac

IRIS PSEUDACORUS or yellow pond iris in the back, the leafs are like swords, they clean the water in the pond, in the front is CALTHA PALUSTRIS, also a good water cleaner, the fishing wire is for keeping the herons from eating our fish.

FIG, my fig tree is comming to life and the figs are growing now, the figs have overwintered as tiny peas so as soon as the weather gets warmer the tiny figs start to grow.

I hope your are all having a wonderful week !

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.

IT IS THAT TIME AGAIN !

Lilacs, don’t you love them ? I do !
