Spring has Sprung even in Boston.

Hi Folks,

I am so enjoying your gardens and the photos you upload because things take so long to get started over here (Boston) My Daffs only opened up this week and my Dicentra Spectablis is still only 1" high!!  That said there is a Boston Flower Show.  It was a few weeks ago & held indoors. Here with, some photos for your enjoyment. The tree trunk slabs used to make a path were spectacular and I loved the slightly over the top idea of flowers at the back of your chair - should you be throwing an Alice in Wonderland Type party in the near future!!  Please do keep putting up all your photos.  I had no idea how good we have it in Ireland (i.e. the fact that we can really garden almost all year) untill I got over here.  Oh well, I'll get home ... eventually.  Hope you like the photos.

Take care & happy gardening.  Suzy H

Just looked at your photos Suzy.  Flamboyant to say the least!!  I lived in Chicago during mid 60s and hated the winters and now at my age would hate it even more with such a short growing period.  We are having a nice run of good weather here in Westport so enjoying the garden.

Your weather certainly seems to be terrific Sally - from heat wave to clear blue skies.  We really are incredibly lucky with the weather in Ireland when it comes to gardening.  Plenty of sun and plenty of rain.... God, am i begining to sound American.  Can't wait to move home (in a few years!!)


I looked at your photos and your garden looks really lovely.  Well done!
