Flowers.

Here are some snaps of my back garden a couple of days ago. Click to enjoy closer.

Snowdrops, Helebores and Crocus.

I love this shot of this Iris!

Inside a Helebore, aren't they beautiful?

I will blog some more pics as the season progresses. Hope you like them.

Green and dark purple are my fave colours for Hellebore :) Very pretty!

I love your garden!! It makes me look forward to our tulips that hopefully will bloom this spring.

That first photo would have brought tears to the eyes of my mother had she still been alive. Snowdrops were her second favourite flowers (her first being forget-me-nots, as they were bundled within carnations for her wedding bouquet). She used to say that when the Snowdrops came into flower we were over the worst of winter and could now look forward to the spring.

I have to say that's an impressive healthy looking display! Having been brought up in Leics I know the soil is naturally heavy clay, and is either too wet or too dry, and to me it's obvious that someone is putting a lot time and effort into that garden!

Oh John, what a wonderful sight for you and your Dad after a nasty winter. All these beautiful blooms. Thanks for sharing, care and huggles, xxx

I wish I had flowers in my garden, but a teenage son who still thinks that he's David Beckham and flowers simply do not mix.

I get lots of wild ones under my hedge which I like, but nothing quite as extraordinarily beautiful as your garden.

Kevin. our soil isn't clay, it's sandy if anything!

Hi, Michelle!

Thanks Zoe, you are still being nice to me. I am worried!

I'm envious. Not least because my part of the world is covered in snow again. Beautiful gardens! I'm glad spring is coming somewhere.

john.g. said...

Hello, Cynicalgirl, thank-you for the visit!

Rog said...

Very Good John. I've also now got your fingerprints on file.

Mickle in NZ said...

Hi John, again,

Awww, beautiful. This makes me want an English garden.

Not this wild jungle with just green, green, greeeeeeeeeen leaves all over the place and...okay, I exaggerate, but it ain't no English garden!
