It doesn't feel like Easter

But have a good one anyway. Here are my four varieties of Camellia and the only descripton I can give is three pinks and a white.

I am not usually a fan of pink, but the double ones are beautiful!! Happy Easter, Pat.

Charlie said...

It's so nice seeing your garden come to life—spring is definitely the best season of all.

Happy Easter to you and YTL.

Pat said...

Nea: thanks and the same to you and the family - in both countries.

John.g: you must take photographs - your garden always looks immaculate in comparison.

Thank you Judy and the same to you and Mr K.

Charlie: it's my favourite too. Happy Easter to you and Martha.

Ah, I love Camelias but unfortunately ours died before it ever really got started.

Pat said...

Gadjo: they need to be in the right place. I think they don't like the morning sun. It might be worth trying again.

It's Spring!

Isn't it?

:-D

Run outdoors, play, sing, the hills are alive...can you tell I'm in a playful mood? Again?

Pat - beautiful colours already from your garden.

Autumn here amongst the native evergreen trees, however my grape hyacinths hace sprouted well and happily - they are very well contained in a plastic, rectangular planter. I'll get a glorious blue promise of spring from them in July.

Many sincere thanks for reminding me, I'll move them to beside the front door in the next few weeks.

I hope Easter is treating you each and both kindly, Michelle and my snoozling Zebbycat, xxx and zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz

It definitely doesn't feel like Easter here, but no doubt I'll manage to stuff myself with chocolate all the same.

Lovely blooms, I especially like the bottom one with its white edged petals and thick gold fringe.

Happy Easter to you too.

Gadjo Dilo said...

I already tried that - they were crouched behind a wall.

Z said...

Sunshine and sleet today - proper April weather!

Happy Easter, Pat.

Lovely camellias.

I was admiring my mother's Camellia today. For the life of me I don't know why I've not got one.

Have a good Easter

Pat said...

Naomi: are you eating chocolate? I daren't having just attained 9 stone.

GG: feeling a trifle stiff today so will sit this one out and watch you:)

Mickle : the beds here were over run with grape hyacinths when we first came. I got rid of them but they are back under sufferance.

Pat said...

Eryl: there's nothing like a thick gold fringe is there?

Gadjo: coud be you are incompatible with then as am I with azaleas.

Pat said...

Z: watch out for snow blindness:)

Kevin: I think you should get one and note the position of your mother's.

I hope your Easter turned out better than it appeared to b on Friday, Pat.

Blazing said...

+e obviously.

Careless old sausage I am today.

Pat said...

Sam: thank you - I miss you but as long as you're around that's OK.

Blazing: don't worry - I do it all the time. It's been very quiet but pleasant.

R. Sherman said...

Late to the party, but I hope you had a nice weekend.

Cheers.

Pat said...

Randall: nice in that I've got some spring cleaning done.

savannah said...

i've decided i've had garden envy for too long! it will be a very different look around here this spring-summer! xoxoxo

Pat said...

Savannah;I took up gardening as the children became more independant - it filled a gap and I could nurture plants instead of children. I'm sure you'll love it.
