As we had warm and sunny weather lately, the garden came to live again, earlier than usual, it was unusually warm for March. But the good weather is about to end and Mr Frost will be back. We urgently need rain as everything is bone dry, despite all the rain we had during Winter. I have sandy soil in my garden so it rapidly dries when we get sun and wind.
The bees are having a ball in my skimmia bush, I love the sound of the bees buzzing. And the flowers smell so nice. This small bush is planted next to our terrace so it is nice sitting on our terrace with a coffee or a drink at the moment.
And my chives is on the grow again.
Have a great week all !
How about this for color ??
Have a great week !
Sorry for being absent a lot in the past month’s. Winter was grey , wet and soft and it was almost impossible to take nice pictures. In fact we had no real Winter, no snow, no ice, just a few light night frosts. March has been like real Spring although it is still Winter. The sky is bright blue, the sun shines and we enjoy the sun a lot. Nature starts to wake up and the first Spring flowers are in bloom. I just hope we don’t get heave frost in April or May, everything is possible and this will do a lot of damage.
Always on of the first in bloom and always reliable, you plant the bulbs in the soil and they come up year after year. So easy !
Another one you can always rely on, the amalanchier tree, also called juneberry, I don’t know why they call it juneberry as it always flowers at the end of march ! In a few weeks time it will be covered in small white flowers and it will be buzzing with bees. Look at that blue sky we have at the moment . So much better than grey.
Have a great weekend !
