The weather has been good for the last two days. It has given me time to play catch up. I have managed to prune Spring flowering shrubs, raise the canopy on some of the trees, also clipped the conifers into shape, that lie in the middle of the garden. They don't look too bad....I am no expert at clipping. I have great admiration for those that can make a peacock out of yew etc.........
This is the view from the deck. I have planted the troughs with ornamentals. The plants are tiny at the moment but I am hoping they will put on a good show this summer. I think I may have overdone the colour combo, my impulsive nature always lets me down when it comes to buying plants. I see, I like, I buy.......I should have learnt by now :)
One of the prettiest blooms in the garden at the moment. Rhododendron, you either love them, or hate them. I love the softer looking flowers and this one is a favourite. My father bought this for me when we moved to the farmhouse.....he bought me so many plants....I have so many lovely memories.
And finally this is my new gardening friend. We all have a Robin, I am sure, who follows us around the garden as we dig the soil. This little chap even comes into the shed to get his breakfast.
The warm weather is set to last for the next few days. I hope the sun is shining on you, wherever you are :)
