It’s been a couple of weeks since I last posted, but summer is here, the garden is in full swing now with vegetables growing, juvenile and adult birds coming and going on our feeders, with summer flowers in full bloom. 🙂
To start off here’s a picture of a special visitor to the garden.
The garden is in full spring colour at the moment and I thought I would post a few photographs of it. 🙂
I took this yesterday, it’s a picture of one side of our small front garden. The tulips have all come out in spectacular reds and whites, we have hyacinths of various colours and the daffodils are still just hanging on too! 🙂
This last weekend has been really busy – spring is here! 🙂
Things are moving on at a pace in the garden, flowers are really springing up, vegetable seeds are starting to be planted in seed trays and the blackbirds are singing furiously to proclaim territory and catch a mate. 😀
This is one of many crocus types in my garden, they are delicate and beautiful and a sure sign that the weather is getting warmer when they leap into flower.
I’ve had a really busy month, but I’ve still managed to squeeze in doing quite a bit in the garden as well as cleaning out my nest boxes too!
I recently moved some of my Michaelmas daisies to the front garden in two batches and placed them by the small garden wall where they will get lots of sun and hopefully attract the bee’s, butterflies and all the other pollinators. You can see them here on the left of the picture (they needed some water as it has been very dry here).
As you can see I also have some Rudbeckia “Aries” (the yellow flowers in the middle of the photograph), like the Michaelmas daisies they flower well into October and provide a real splash of colour and are also great for the pollinators as well.
