The rest of the calming garden pics


Said a fond goodbye to my Norfolk family this morning.  It is a beautiful warm day - I felt very calm so I drove alone to Morrisons.  The first time for months.  Didn't meet anyone in the lane - thankfully.
The family will be pleased:)

We had a beautiful sunny day yesterday - one where you could almost believe Spring was here. Back to grey today...

rosneath said...

well done ... we are pleased too. your garden is lovely ... we hear that Scotland is 5 weeks behind and can believe it, the crocuses are still a purple carpet and the daffodils are hardly out!

Granny Annie said...

Glad you could enjoy the beautiful scenery.

John Greenwood said...

We're about 4 weeks behind. Magnolia showing colour, Camelia weeks away and the Rhoderdenderons are just swelling!

Beautiful !
I especially love the tiny blue flowers.
I use lots of greens, blue, pale pink and white in my very small garden. So that when the heat of summer 105+ comes all I see the cool color, No reds, oranges, bright yellow and no brown pots.
I think that is why I so enjoy when you post photos of your beautiful garden.

cheers, parsnip

So many BEAUTIFUL things blooming....It all looks so very very pretty, dear Pat....And it really looks like SPRING!!! I'm happy you are enjoying it all....!

SDC said...

You're a strong woman Pat. So much about you I admire. I know why now, in hindsight, I was so drawn to your blog :o)

Sprint is finally, finally making its presence know out here. I don't have to be jealous of your pics anymore.

Gadjo Dilo said...

Yes, we're also a few weeks behind here in Transylvania, but dafodils and the Japonica are finally out, plus some fantastic Gentiana Verna. The one thing really I'd like to grow but can't here is a carmine pink Camelia like the one you've got.

Have no a fear about your driving hen, you are as skilled as the rest of the other female drivers that regularly cause mayhem on the roads.

Congrats on "Titty" by the way.

Pat said...

Kim: it's up and down here too.

rosneath: as long as there are flowers - the rest will come in its own good time.

Granny Annie: its a daily pleasure:)

John: as you know I can't grow rhodos.

Parsnip: good thinking. The little blue ones are forget-me-nots. Quite apt really.

Naomi: I will try to make the most of any sunshine if only to sit out at snifter time( weekends only:))

SDC: I wish I were braver. I'm glad you like the blog.

UB: sprint? Have you taken up the running dear?

Gadjo: I am proud of the fact that I planted all of them - apart from the tree magnolias - myself.
The stellata I put in the wrong place to start with - but it is happy now.

Chef: I'll ignore the slur on meand my fellow drivers cos' I'm so excited at winning sacks of llama poo. The garden will love it.

AndrewM said...

Well done!

Pat said...

AndrewM: I'm not making any promises.

Ponita in Real Life said...

Beautiful garden, Pat! I'm still waiting for the snow to melt to discover what's planted in my yard. I bought the house in August last year so have no idea what will bloom. Anything green would be welcome. We're a month into Spring and it is actually snowing (yet again) today. I'm living in The Never Ending Winter. *sigh*

Pat said...

Ponita: an exciting time, and you have the decorating to keep you warm.
I'm going for a coloured wall also - the others are milk coloured so the one wall will be lavender to - hopefully - match a colour in a Monet reproduction.
Suggested by my DIL.

Mage said...

Lovely images. Thank you.

mapstew said...

It's a BIG wheelbarra I'm pushin'! Can ya smell me yet? :¬)

Pat said...

Mage: you're welcome:)

Map: now you mention it there is a faint whiff in the air. I reckon you must be the other side of Taunton.

Guyana-Gyal said...

It's raining and muddy here, and only my spinach is growing big and wild. Your garden's more than calming, it's inspiring.

You drove alone! Good on you. I'm a cowardly kind of driver so, hip hip hooray for you, Pat.

Pat said...

GG: that makes two of us:)

Daphne Wayne-Bough said...

Well done for getting behind the wheel again. Independence has no price.
