Hello and welcome back again. I thought I'd let you see some more of the garden. Spring is the time of year when things change so quickly. It's hard to keep up with it!
We bought some plants from the market in Banbridge. Here is a selection of purple ones planted in an old Belfast sink.
We still have lots of daffodils and other Spring bulbs flowering.
The hyacinths smell delicious.
The rhubarb is really coming on well. I've already pulled the stalks that were forced, roasted and eaten them! They were so tender and sweet.
More flowers ...
The tulips are starting to bloom now as well.
The flowering currant looks well - this is its best year so far.
The forsythia is one of my favourites at this time of year.
This is a birch tree that has tiny catkins on it. I thought it looked lovely.
Remember our silver birch saplings. There is amazing growth on them.
The husband decided to indulge in some garden art and built this stone structure among the saplings. Eventually it will hardly be visible, when the trees have grown bigger.
I think it looks a bit like an old-fashioned bee-hive. Built entirely from granite stones found in our garden!
The conifers we bought from the market are still in our 'nursery' section to get a bit bigger before planting out.
Here are a few more flowers to finish with.
I hope you are all enjoying Spring - or Autumn - wherever you are. All the seasons have their good points, don't they? All the best for now.
