I was given this bunch of tulips for the house
I don't normally have them inside as they fade quickly
but the shades are beautiful
It's tulip time in the garden, these from last year in my raised bed.
These in a pot at the back of the garden
They are stunning
The garden is very mixed at this time of year, the last of the spring flowers are still in bloom, but the summer plants are not showing yet.
My Magnolia tree, still has loads of pink bloom, my acer is a beautiful deep red, my Peany has loads of buds, but they won't start to show for a few weeks yet. The fruit bushes are filling with flowers, I have hopes for a good crop this summer.
I have purchased a couple of grasses for the sink beside my Acer, I have another one on order, due sometime in May.
It's just a case of wait, wait and wait a bit more, I always have itchy fingers this time of year.
I follow a good blog An English Homestead, where Kev has a huge garden and some animals, he does a great job of teaching his children where their food comes from, he shares his knowledge of producing great food. He is also a wonderful carpenter, and has just started making things to sell, soon it will be June and Fathers day, have a look at his hand made items, all at a good price, I have hinted to hubby what I would love to own.
