Garden Stuff

I haven't posted for a few days. Not been feeling great and couldn't summon up any enthusiasm.  I have been oomph-less.

Today, the rain has stopped and the sun is trying to break through so I have been pottering in the garden.

Lots of shrubs and flowers are now showing themselves off after their winter sleep and we are discovering lots of pretty things now.

Here are some photos for those who like garden stuff...

  1. Is that a potato vine JayCee? It's a beautiful mature garden. Throwing it down here on the Irish Riviera.😊

    1. I think it is a potato vine Dave. Very pretty flower.
      Your rain is due here tomorrow or Friday I think.

  2. That's so pretty! How lucky that the previous owners planted so many things for you to enjoy! It is nice when things come up on their own and you don't have to do a lot of fussing! Looks great!

    1. Yes, we are very pleased with the previous owners' planting. A nice surprise.

  4. Lovely - you have inherited some very colourful and healthy plants.
    The honeysuckle that I brought from our UK garden has blossomed beautifully over the years - it never fails to delight, and in the 30º + heat smells wonderful.

    1. We are lucky if our temperature gets halfway to that point!!!
      Only joking.

  5. No doubt about it, you get that warm sun before we do - nothing here is that far on.

  6. How pretty. There are some lovely plantings. I have a wonderful yellow azalea here - the scent is amazing. You are on top of your lawn. Mine is about to be on top of me - not to mention the meadow approaching from the bank area!

    1. Our lawn is quite small but is full of moss, daisies and clover. Not much grass!

  7. Is pottering the same as pootering? (See your profile) I have often wondered about the second word.

    1. Pootering was meant to be a playful reference to the character in the book Diary of a Nobody, perhaps too obscure!

    2. Thanks for the explanation. I am too dim to have spotted that connection. That's why I am usually spotted wearing a conical hat labelled "D".

  8. One of my favourite books.

    1. Sue and Cathy.. I enjoyed the book but I have not met many people who have read it.

  9. I recently received photos of my garden in France. The grass is about a metre high, and the whole place is a mess. Very depressing. Obviously the gardener has not been doing his work. Bring back the Guillotine!

  10. Lovely garden. So much colour. It's a great time of the year for colour here too, before sun burns it all

  11. A great surprise for you, just what is needed after a cold wet spell. Actually it’s cold and wet here…..but I know I’m not going to be seeing those sights for another few months

  12. How exciting to see what is coming into flower in a new garden. We have been here over 40 years and I am still surprised by things that appear in the garden....presumably seeds brought in by birds and animals ( foxes/cats)

  13. I would enjoy the excitement of what might be lurking waiting to appear.
