Spring Flowers

The garden is starting to produce all the flowers from the bulbs I bought way back in April on our trip to Melbourne. The new sweet peas Pink Lady smell absolutely lovely and fill the area with aroma.

The Ranunulas are coming up in all sorts of colours and I really love them as you get more than one flower, which is all that the daffodils usually do.

While my friends were staying with us we pruned back all the roses except the white one and I have been rewarded with all its flowers as well. President Kennedy is its name.

Love my Roses


So if you count the marigolds, azaleas, snowdrops all over the place the odd daffodil the garden is looking a treat.


During the week we also had an offer to collect a trailer load of cow manure. I have never seen such a large amount of it before. The farmer actually spreads it on his fields but we were allowed to have a couple of trailers full one for us.

Looking from the Gate up. All Manure.

It has been a busy week, visited the community Gardens and planted seedlings there as well. Climbing Beans, Zucchini, Cucumber, Short Beans, Luffa, Gourds, Flowers Tatsoi, Spinach and Kale. Most from our planting day.


Wishing it would rain, feeling like drought mode.

Till Next Time, Stay Safe.

  1. Your white roses are so pretty.
    It's great that you got a large amount of cow manure. I wish there were farmers nearby, I buy bags of cow manure from the store.

  2. I love this time of year especially going for my daily walk and seeing the flowers in gardens. Everything looks so different and they were there all along just waiting for the warmer weather. Having those colours and aromas inside your home looks lovely to me.
    Hoping you get some rain. We are actually getting the rain. Would be good if we could share it with you.
    Have a great week.

  3. Wishing it would rain here too...and soon! Out on a walk with our dog this morning, everything so dry and the grass being dry and crunchy. Your flowers are lovely, I grew sweet peas this year too and they were all pinks. It's lovely to have flowers out in the Spring. Meg:)
