We have been enjoying some lovely weather over the last few days in the South East, it's been absolutely glorious. The garden has come alive, where there was bare earth there is now fresh new green growth, the buds are emerging, Spring is finally here. Some plants only have a short glory moment, blink and you could miss it.
The Magnolia's this year have been stunning but already their blooms are beginning to fall.
Blink and you could miss it.
This is a lovely time of year to be out in the garden, everything is coming to life; so full of hope and promise, before the pests and disease take hold.
One of my favourite is Viburnum Mohawk, it's scent is divine, in the last few days the shrub in my garden has gone from this
Other favourites are Snake's head fritillary, if you look closely you may be able to see a red lily beetle which was quickly squashed.
Chaenomeles Japonica, stunning in white
I could carry on but don't want to bore you all.
Update on 'Home by the Sea' to follow shortly, there has been quite a few new furniture purchases, now all being stored not just in our garage but our neighbours too. Watch this space.
