I have been very busy using the fine weather to cut the grass! Too much grass!  But also a lot of watering to keep new trees alive! I have to say I do like watering!

I really enjoy the new hour long Gardeners World, makes such a difference.

Enjoy the day!

Jacinta D Jacinta D 22 June 2017 13:20:15

Try loading the photos later, Linda. It worked for me that way the other day.

LindaB LindaB 22 June 2017 13:38:38

Ok will do thanks!

TheH (Hazel) TheH (Hazel) 22 June 2017 19:38:55

Sometimes if the photos are very high resolution they take forever to load! Good advice from Jacinta.  I remember the great expanses of grass at your garden ..... i hope you like mowing as much as you like watering!

LindaB LindaB 23 June 2017 11:04:52

3rd time lucky!  No Hazel dont like mowing, feels like such a waste time but I do like the look when I am finished!  Need more flower beds and that means a lot more plants and divisions!


Jemo Jemo 23 June 2017 11:30:07

Beautiful Linda...you can sense the heat from the photos!

LindaB LindaB 23 June 2017 13:01:42

Jacinta D Jacinta D 23 June 2017 15:16:52

The garden is filling up and it looks great. It is a nice job watering, one I like especially like to do in the early morning.

The weather is great, enjoy it because it looks like next week our gardens will be well watered!!!

Jacinta D Jacinta D 25 May 2017 11:06:58

Wow, Linda. Your garden is really beginning to look quite established in such a short space of time. Lovely.

Gracedieu Lass Gracedieu Lass 25 May 2017 12:43:40

Linda, your flower borders are filling up and looking great. I love the combination of the orange poppy and the leaves of the Ligularia. You have done so much in such a short time.

LindaB LindaB 25 May 2017 12:56:13

Thanks the growth rate this year has been huge, am pleased with the way the beds are filling out, it is digging new ones that is the problem!

Dick Dick 25 May 2017 19:44:49

Looking god Linda. What is that big red and yellow flower?

TheH (Hazel) TheH (Hazel) 26 May 2017 00:13:08

Lovely photos, Linda! We don't see half enough of your garden!

LindaB LindaB 26 May 2017 10:48:06

Dick it is a poppy I got in Lidl, not as good as last year but starting to improve now.  Hazel I know!!! Need a three day weekend!

Mary B Mary B 26 May 2017 13:16:21

Michele Maria Michele Maria 26 May 2017 20:24:15

Camellia Brushfields Yellow

30 March 2017 08:49:15

 I bought a new Camelia a few weeks ago in Tesco, very healthy! Very pleased with it.

Jacinta D Jacinta D 30 March 2017 09:12:03

That's a beauty. It's a very good 'doer' too.

accsean accsean 30 March 2017 09:25:19

That is a lovely Camellia, Linda.

Dick Dick 30 March 2017 19:52:07

Lovely, Linda. i have never grown Camelias as the soil is quite limey here. Never have come across that colour before.

PeterW PeterW 30 March 2017 22:05:18

Very nice and i do find everynow and then you do find gems in Tesco.

Spring Time

20 March 2017 17:29:49

It is about time I did my first journal of the year!  Here are a few from my garden, can't believe how fast everything is growing!   I have put a few in of my maples that are young and in pots in the garage for tonight as the frost which I believe we are going to have will damage them!

My first Erythronium to flower is a new one I got last year so happy it is flowering!

The daffodils have been flowering for weeks - such great value!

The Epimedium is a great flowerer and then such lovely leaves afterwards for the summer.

Stay warm!

Jacinta D Jacinta D 20 March 2017 17:47:39

Two fabulous flowers in the Epimedium and Erythronium, Linda. Can't wait to see how your new garden is developing.

Gracedieu Lass Gracedieu Lass 20 March 2017 18:01:26

Your garden has wonderful colour from the planting of daffodils. The erythronium is to die for and very well photographed. Looking forward to seeing more photos as the year goes on.

PeterW PeterW 20 March 2017 19:50:45

You are making great strides in the garden Linda and that erythronium is just fantastic. I need to move mine to enjoy them more and I need to get a white like that. Great display of daffs. i've had leaves of my acers burnt over the years due to frost and my Orange Dream is jsut produving leaves at the moment so here's hoping we don't get much of this weeks frosts.

JoanG JoanG 20 March 2017 21:38:09

Three great photos of your garden Linda, love your daffodil display. 

Jackie Jackie 21 March 2017 07:29:03

Wow Linda great photos and what beauties too. We need to see more of this beautiful garden and see what you have been doing with it. I'm sure it's fabulous. 

Geranimojess Geranimojess 21 March 2017 09:32:19

Let the Mutt out at 6am this Morning for his Exercise only to be greeted with a fall of Snow...Thankfully it only lasted a few Minutes and didn't stick, but anything is possible so I wouldn't put any young Plants out yet and even though it's Sunny here you can still feel the Chill...

Keego Keego 21 March 2017 11:01:08

Great photos Linda everythng looking great - do you cut off all the leaves of the Epimedium? Your erythronium is a beauty and i love your edging. Looking forward to seeing lots more photos

TerriShoos TerriShoos 21 March 2017 12:32:42

That's coming along nicely, Linda. It'll be a picture and open to the public by the time you've finished!

LindaB LindaB 22 March 2017 08:00:47

Thanks everyone, garden coming along nicely so hope to be posting more this year!!!  Mary I only cut off the dead leaves of the Epimedium about two weeks ago when I saw the flower buds underneath, the after the flowers the new leaves should appear!

2016 Photos

28 November 2016 09:26:44

Wow so difficult to choose! I suppose that's a good thing!!  I love the Fushia because it was a cutting I took on Lansdowne Road last year!  So I call it Lansdowne Road Fushia!!!

I love this Rudbeckia Herbstonne but will have to stake it better next year!!!

Finally I love the view from this part of the garden!







Jacinta D Jacinta D 28 November 2016 10:16:22

Gosh, I don't blame you. Love the sweeping hills. Is that part of your garden, Linda?

LindaB LindaB 28 November 2016 11:00:59

Thankfully no Jacinta!!!  Nice to look at and all that!!!

roofy roofy 28 November 2016 20:11:06

You,ve chosen well Linda,beaut pics.

fraoch fraoch 28 November 2016 20:18:11

Lovely photos, Linda. Great to have a view like that.

JoanG JoanG 28 November 2016 22:01:32

Gorgeous photos Linda.  The rudbeckia is stunning in both photos and the staking looks fine to me! 

TheH (Hazel) TheH (Hazel) 29 November 2016 01:07:29

Wow! That border is really filling up! And of course your "borrowed landscape" is tryly amazing. Is that Rudbekia hardy? 'it is certainly a late flowerer. Plants we take as slips are always extra precious  and that is a very pretty Fuschia.

TerriShoos TerriShoos 29 November 2016 07:42:30

You've done some amazing work! That's some view.

LindaB LindaB 29 November 2016 09:46:13

The Rudbeckia looks well staked there but a month later it was at a 45 deg angle!!

Thank you everyone!

Scrubber Scrubber 30 November 2016 11:57:29
