Despite the wind . . .


I spent a day in my garden.  Lots of weeding and a few extensions of beds to include the poppies that were growing in the lawn - they're now in the garden!!
My prize Echium (again!)

Some beautiful Jonquils
Blossoms beginning to show everywhere I turn - I love them

A happy day

Spring is such a glorious time, isn't it! It's a long way away for me, so I enjoy seeing yours. Your flowers are just beautiful! Hugs, Elaine

A happy day and such beautiful flowers. Blossoms are so special - not only are they such pretty flowers but they are a foretaste of Spring.

But that Echium continues to take top prize!

Windy here also but time well spent

I fiddled around a bit in the garden yesterday; wish I'd done more as it is such a shocking day today (but great for stitching and watching telly!)Lovely to see what's in your garden as you're not too far away from me; my flowering quince is flowering for the first time, the daffs are slowly blooming, the wattle is coming on nicely- what a great time of year this is. Have a great week, Annie.

So much difference 20 odd kilometres makes, no blossoms, no daffies, jonquils are just out. Just a few degrees colder means about 3 weeks difference.
