I've noticed lately that a few people have been taking us on tours of their local areas and where they live so I thought I would take you all on a tour of my garden!
And here it is.
Lovely isn't it? In the foreground on the right we have a Snapdragon with last years seed heads still on it and on the left we have a Geranium. In the pot in the very bottom left hand corner we have this
A lone red Tulip - bless it.
There are a couple of these, I think they are called Pushkinias. Quite dainty little things with blue stripes.
I've got one daffodil.... lots of leaves around but only one actually flowered,. The middle really is lovely if you can make out all the petals.
Saving the best until last a Japanese Cherry Tree, which is in a pot - last year we did actually get a tiny cherry and I mean TINY.
Close up of the flowers
At the very back of the "garden" is a Mexican Orange Blossom which has never flowered and also in pots we have four cherry trees. Hub planted some cherry pips three years ago and they are now each about six foot tall.
So that was my garden. I hope you enjoyed your tour and feel sorry for all the hard work I have to do to keep it up to this standard-- you know all the digging and weeding etc.
In the summer I do plant up more pots and put up hanging baskets, there are also plants still in hiding not yet awoken from their winter sleeps so it isn't really as barren as it looks at the minute.
To be honest one of my dreams is to have a proper garden with loads of flowers and mature trees etc so I can't help but be envious of all the lovely gardens I see that are out there. Maybe one day..................
