Hello. I am interested in trees, shrubs and perennials mainly. My garden is easy care, however his year, with so much rain, I have not gardened much, but the garden is not too bad. Forunately as I am on acid soil I can grow camellias, azeleas and rhododendrons.
I try to encourage wildlife into the garden, but my bird feeders are being destroyed by gray squirrels.Please have a look at my "Profile".

I am still trying to get my garden sorted after being away. Neighbours cut my front lawn, but as the back was locked the grass in the back garden was left for me. As the grass had not been cut for months there were seedlings of Paeonia ludlowii lutea in the grass, I potted up a number of these, and hope I did not destroy the back ‘lawn’.
I thought I would be away for the flowering of wood anemones, Fritillaria meleagris and trilliums, fortunately, things being late this year, they are still in flower.

It's good to be home
On Thursday evening I got home after being almost two months in Gdansk. The garden needs a lot of work, but it was pleasant to be home

I have been in Gdansk since mid-march and am going home this day week.
I am wondering what my garden will be like. I am sure the grass will be like a meadow and the garden will be very untidy.
One of my first jobs will be to get a skip and get rid of all the remains of trees I cut down over the winter.
But I am looking forward to getting back to gardening and catching upon with all that has happened in garden.ie.

As the weather has at last improved, yesterday I continued weeding and tidying up my main south-facing herbaceous/mixed border. I do not cut back in the winter, but leave the bed until spring. When working in the border I found glasses I lost last year.
Today I had a good look at the garden and saw no new interesting features. The thing I get the most kick out of now is seeing new peony growth.

Good day to garden
For the third day in a row I have been able to garden without rain. I tidied up part of my main herbaceous garden. It was good to see Crocus tommasinianus, Narcissus 'February Gold' and the peonies beginning to grow.
