MY SPRING GARDEN

img_2955

I really love pansy’s and the mixture of colours you can get them in, the slugs like them to but since I have had the little pond I don’t see very many and that is why my baby frogs are so fat!

I have moved things about in the garden, with a lot of help from my friend Sylvie so I am very happy with it now, I just want all the bulbs and flowers to grow so I have lots of colour and hopefully be able to pick some flowers for indoors. Β There is only one job left to do and that is digging over the rose bed so I am looking for a strong person to lend a hand. Β Loving the new wicker chair which is so comfortable and a bargain for Β£20 also the pink plastic coated shelf, so it will not rust for Β£8, I do like my bargains. Β I need to make the cushion covers for all the chairs so they are all matching. Β Herbs are growing very well this year as are the strawberries so should get a bumper crop. Β I have a pretty white rose for growing all over the pink ladder and I want to get some nice standard roses for the rose bed but all shades of pink.

The olive tree has grown loads in the year I have had it and it likes the full sun most of the day. Β I made a little drinking pot for the bumble bees and butterfliesΒ with coloured stones.

I get very impatient waiting for things to grow especially my table and chairs outside the front as the ivy and climbers should be all over them and then they will look nice hopefully. Β I will look out for a very fast growing climber I think.

  1. It has always been my dream to have an English garden! Lush and rambling. Instead I live in California, where it never rains and water is scarce, and I have to make do with hardy plants and a world of succulents!
