This is such a pretty pot plant but I don't know it's name. It is a beautiful pale lime colour. That's rosemary (for remembrance) behind




My favourite rose - New Dawn - we appeared at the same time. Never bloomed in April before

These little daisies come up, unbidden , everywhere! Note the vaseline to prevent the snails crawling up the Hosta pot behind. On the left is the jasmine my son gave me in a pot, which now reaches the balcony and has a strong woody fragrance.

The weird weather is causing Spring to be muddled all over the world, they're saying.

We have jasmine running along our fence too and it smells gorgeous just now. It gets to that stinky point when the flowers are dying on it though and we have to keep our bedroom window shut, it's so strong.

It is a curious woody smell and comes up through our downstairs loo.

Gosh I'm impressed to see your rosemary in full flower. Mine is only just beginning to show the first signs of a few sparse 'buds'.

PI said...

sablonneuse: that's surprising - its nearly finished flowering and its the back of the house with only evening sun.

Does that mean mine has been in flower and I didn't even notice? Told you I was a useless gardener (with poor eyesight as well).

PI said...

sablonneuse: I wouldn't have thought - in France - you would be behind us.
You'll have to remember next year!

perhaps the white flower is a type of sweet woodruff? The leaves look almost like a hebe.

PI said...

anon: if you meant the top flower - it is actually a pale lime green in colour. I'll look woodruff up.

PI said...

anon: no I think SW is too white and too small.

That potted plant is a clematis. Most probably Fragrant Oberon. I'd just planted mine today.
