GBBD April 2014 – Spring is moving into Summer
Today is GBBD and gardeners all over the world are photographing what is blooming in their gardens today and linking with Carol at May Dreams Garden to share what they have found.
In a Vase on Monday – First flowers from the Cuttings Garden
It’s Monday and the day for Cathy’s In a Vase on Monday meme.
I’m excited because these are the very first flowers to be cut from the cuttings garden!
The Spring Walk – 11th April 2014 Even more colour
A little late today and no time to write much.
Just some images for you to see what I am enjoying at the moment. I am so pleased with the how quickly the spring walk looks as I imagined that I am already planning to extend it this autumn and move and add some shrubs that I think will add to the effect.
The slope on Thursday 10th April- some new entries
It has been a week of extremes. The promised rain came in the early hours of Friday morning accompanied by ferocious winds (not forecast) causing some damage (you can read about it here). But Friday afternoon was the real surprise, with hail stones falling like snow but luckily not on My Hesperides Garden, but it was very close.
Wordless Wednesday – white wisteria
A very lucky escape plus vegetable garden update
I think I may have mentioned on more than one occasion that Italy has extremes of weather! When it rains it is in torrents; when it is windy it is gale force (it throws our heavy caste iron chairs to the ground); when it’s hot, it burns. But Friday was a surprise to everyone.
A Vase on Monday – Needs Must
First a confession, this vase was put together on Friday and the title of the post hints at why.
Joy of Joys – Wisteria
When we were searching for a house we saw one that had the most amazing wisteria covered terrace. The stem (I want to say trunk) was so thick I thought the plant must be hundreds of years old. I know now that they grow so quickly that 100 years was probably unlikely.
The Spring Walk more and more tulips 4th April
The title says it all.
