It’s spring folks! With still very freezing temperatures in England I don’t really know if you can call it a spring but to get with the program I have rounded up a few of my favorite spring plants in this blog post.
1. Snowdrops~ I have them in my garden just underneath that big annoying Conifer tree. (will talk about that later)Unfortunately they didn’t blossom in a full bloom this year. I don’t really know why? Harsh winter, perhaps? I love them as they announce the spring time is coming… and they look great in a vase too.

2. Daffodils~ I have seen a few of them around. Have you? This winter has been long and with snow still around it’ hard to spot them but they are here. I love them and I would love to have a small patch of them under our big tree but they only last for so long…so not really sure if they would be so good for us, for such a small amount of time. We need a plant that hangs around longer. Still they look lovely.
3. Tulips ~They look great and you get them in so many different colors and variations. I think they would look great in some colorful pots just around the garden. Unfortunately we don’t have that much space to plant them to be in their full glory. Nevertheless as I am getting more and more into my gardening I will make sure to have a few pots and bulbs up and ready for the next year. In the meantime I will admire these few lovely images I pulled of the internet.
Is anybody else sick of drying their clothes all over the house besides me? We need some sun asap. Fingers crossed for this snow to melt soon and my flowers start to blossom.
Have a lovely sunday, x Ines
After a grey, rainy & dull day yesterday, today we have finally seen some sunshine here down south. (read Berkshire) So I took a walk to a nearby national thrust – Pinkneys Green. I took my camera with me in case I get inspired by autumn colors. Here are a few snaps from my afternoon walk.
So you remember when I said there is more to come? My perennials are coming out of their shell even if there is no sign of the spring in the air. They are shooting right up. I am so happy!
I have just bought a new addition. A Wisteria and a Jasmine flower. I planted Wisteria in the right hand corner and I am hoping to feed it ( trough the years to come) over the decking. Jasmine is planted more further into the flower bed and again( I am a amateur gardener) I am hoping it will spread down the fence.
I look forward to the butterflies in my garden.
Will keep you posted with the progress,
We have been doing a lot of work on our garden recently. We completely re designed the area, got rid of the old overgrown hedge and made a new decking area. It is a still work in process and I don’t think you should half fast things.
So, it will probably take another few years for all my plants to grow to the size I want them to and no, not everything will get finish this summer. But this is what it looks like now.
I used Instagram to take these pictures and as you can see the right had corner is still looking very poor and bold.
So I planted some lovely perennials there that I got from Greenfingers.
These were on the offer.
I planted them last November and they are just coming out now. I will keep you posted on the progress.
