As I mentioned in my post on Monday; on my return from Amsterdam to see the tulips my own garden had exploded into full growth mode.
When I left tulips were still looking amazing and there were buds forming on the bearded Iris. Now all the tulips are just a memory and the Irises are in their full glory. Continue reading
Regular follows of my posts may wonder why I haven’t been posting every day to show you the development of my treasured wisteria. Usually it is in full flower by the end of March and here we are in the middle of April and still I haven’t shared any images with you. Continue reading
