I have a tree!
My awesome In Laws visited us at the weekend and bought me a Peach blossom tree, it will be yonks before I can have a tree house, but every Spring I shall have my own pretty pink blossom.
All the excited squees.
The entire garden is taking full advantage of the gloriously warm and sunny weather, everything seems to be bursting in to life.
My log planter is proving an awesome home for these tiny purple flowers.
Still in awe of these tulips.
On Sunday I saw this bee get down and dirty with daffodils, he was proper shaking his arse all over the flowers to get the pollen, was amazing to watch, it was like my own nature wildlife show.
I’m pretty impressed with the various types of daffodils, in this cake tin planter there are at least 3 different types!
No idea where this pale one came from!
The Primroses are all doing amazing, with new buds cropping up underneath the existing flowers.
This purple beauty, campanula, is looking gorgeous, the colour is a welcomed pop between the yellow and blue which I seem to have favoured so far.
I was ridiculously excited to see that the yellow Jasmine is finally starting to flower, we’ve had it a few years and it really hasn’t done much, but now it seems to have settled down and there are buds and blooms popping up.
The flowers remind me of popcorn!
Whilst most things garden related are going well there are a few things which are causing me a twitchy crazy eye…Fat Cat is back, the stupid overweight ball of fur has trampled a bunch of bulbs and broken the stem on my pink hydrangea.
I know it’s irrational but I’m pissed off that some sodding cat damages things I’ve not only paid for but spent time and effort growing, urgh!
Thankfully the rest of the hydrangeas are doing well.
The other frustration is ivy, the neighbour has bundles of the stuff growing up a wall and they do nothing to tame it. It has destroyed the roof on our shed causing rain to get in and destroy more than a few quids worth of tools, grrr!
Cats and ivy, how do I keep them out my garden?
Love these purple petals, I’m sure they will turn blue eventually, I never realised the various stages of colour the petals went through.
I snapped this photo whilst at the garden centre picking up my blossom tree, I really do need a field of Cosmos in my life.
It may have taken me a while and more than a few sacrificial plants but I think I’ve finally found my green thumbs.
