A splash of colour!


What an amazing weekend of glorious weather!
I just had to share the splash of colour in my garden at the moment.
Above is the Clivia with the view of Roundton behind it.





Next are the anemones - another gorgeous colour that makes the heart sing!









This is what Mum used to call Japonica but really it is Chaenomeles.










And lastly the vivid yellow Mahonia.



I love this time of year - don't you?!!

Oh and by the way - I saw a pair of swallows on a wire as I was ambling around the car boot sale today!

Thanks for sharing the beautiful colours in your garden Jo.
It certainly does lighten the mood when everything is coming into bloom.

I should be able to share a few snaps of my garden in a day or two, but I’m just waiting for my flowering cherry to burst into colour, should be any day now.

My Mahonia is flowering for the first time since I planted it four years ago, so I think I should record that with a photo, don’t you.
Happy Gardening!

Ah yeah, the swallows are starting to appear in the sheds at the farm where Mr D has his workshop. Although your garden is a riot of glorious colour..something the sheds lack!

Thank you, thank you, thank you....for some colour! After Portugal....I am feeling a bit down and the colours here are...well.... non existent. The grass is dirty, brownish grey. The snow is still 3 feet deep by my front tree.... beginning to melt out back but now showing me at least one million fir cones on the old dead grass....from the stupid neighbour's tree. Yes..I mean the neighbour is stupid..not the tree.... sigh..... he has two that are next to dead and sprouting millions of cones to try to procreate.... or at least that's my take on it;

roll on summer.... it will be late May or early June before we have anything flowering... dammit. Oh, well... I better toughen up and act like a Canadian eh?
