How does your garden grow

               Garden feature today ,both from Donna and myself ,I finally managed to down load some pictures,You can see (Ihope) my dear little Magnolia tree ,and the pink flower ,which I believe is from the Primula family.They are the ones we bought at the open day at the exotic pet centre.....The stones in the front of the pink flower are what Kate bought Maurice for Christmas ,and as you can see are really lights ! will be lovely when we can sit out side when it gets a bit warmer,Maurice goes back to his three days tomorrow, so has been in the garden today he has managed to move the little shed over abit ,to accomadate the wheely bins between the shed and fence ,out of sight ! and then in the space between the shed and the summer house,he plans to make a little quiet sort of area to sit ,crazy pave it ,he has bought me a dear little table and chair ,wrought iron effect that will fit in that area ,he had to empty the shed in order to move it ,Whoo hoo ,the contents of a fellows shed ! mainly fishing equipment ! some stuff for the dump ! that old sewing machine I told you about , anyway I took a picture will put it on here at some stage.The sun is shining brightly and its quite warm out ,how nice ,just the day to do abit of tidying up in the garden today .Maurice has actually come in now and is watching 'The 39 steps ',the Kenneth Moore version ,how many times have we seen it ?a really good oldy ........So I'm going to toast some currant bread and butter it ,make a drink ,so I will finish here for today.I hope you are having a lovely day where ever you are ,With Love From  

   

Thankyou for this one too, Donna,Donna can be found in my side bar ,Where I have put the lovely sewing machine so I can look at it often

your flowers are very pretty and those rocks really do shine a lot of light. I have been thinking of getting some but was wondering how bright they were.. are they solar? Your wash looks so nice out there ... today is the day I will get my lines up again.... My other clothes lines got broken and can't be replaced so we got a new pole on a stick... I hope it works ok... better than none anyway. Sandra

Great Pictures...love the Stone lights, but Allan 'wired' my lights 3yrs ago.
So I can't really change.
Scooby, taking an interest as well (lol)

Your pansies are lovely the same colour as mine. The little pink flower thought you might like to know we call them Kirie Dumps up here don't know why but I think is has something to do with Kirriemuir (birth place of JM Barrie) just another piece of useless knowledge I store in my brain.. Have a lovely day Love Joan.

Jan Donna'sgraphics are really lovely ~ I love your flowers and the lights they are very effective ~ The little space between the shed and the summer house will look lovely I am sure when Maurice has finished it ~ the wrought Iron table and chair will look great in there ~ Ally

With silver bells, and cockle shells and pretty maids all in a row!! Did you know it is a rhyme all about Mary, Queen of Scots  and all her maids who were called Mary? I just love currant bread, toasted especially!!! Got the taste now, must buy some....ran out of it a couple of weeks ago and have not replaced it, lol!

Hi Jan,  Mmm...currant bread and butter...yummy! :o)  I had to smile at your dear little Magnolia tree, ours is the same variety and it`s now about 10-12 feet tall and still growing!  It is at least 30 years old though and when we bought it it was the same height at yours.  It makes quite a show in Spring time. :o)

Ah..there's something about Spring.  Getting out in the yard, cleaning up & getting ready for summer. It makes one feel alive again, after the long dark days of winter.  Wish Maurice had time to come help me in my yard.   Linda in Washington state

Sounds like Maurice has certainly been making the most of his time off :-)  Good luck to him for his next venture xx

You have beautiful flowers in your garden!  My husband takes care of our garden.  I have no talent for gardening but I do LOVE to look at the blossoms when they bloom!

It was a lovely day to be outside wasn't it? I was stuck in the hospital working but did have the restaurant doors open looking out on to the garden. Those stone lights are great, never seen them before, lovely to sit outside with in summer when the sunsets!! I had some of those pink flowers, I can't remember the name right now, I'll get back to you when I remember! Jeannette xx

cacklinrosie101 said...

Your flowers are lovely!  They are blooming now?  We are still getting frosts at night.  I can't put anything out until probably mid May.  So pretty.  HUGS  Chris
