Spring Sprung!!!

21 March 2010 16:20:33


At last!!!!! It is begining to look like Spring in the garden.  My Camellia has started flowering - a sure sign!!!! I spent yesterday out there doing some planting. I planted out my tree peony and some hollyhocks, border phlox and loads of summer flowering  bulbs. It feels great to get started!!! Tom planted some peas in the veggie plot. Fingers crossed for them all!!!! Now we will really get to see what survived the icy winter.  Found what looks like a couple of flower buds on my Magnolia - yippee. Will put up photos later. Have to go now - No.1 son is in the Irish Youth Music Awards today so we are off to that!!!

just checked my camellias , no flowers only buds. Acidenthera will be fab, so elegant. Not a sign of a flower bud on the magnolia..I live in hope

Wonderful to see plants bursting into life and have such great weather for planting long may it last. Hope son no 1 did well at the IYMAS assume it was the qualification. My son no 4 Conor is in the band MGRB that won the final of the IYMAS last April was a brilliant learning experience for them.

That's a first for this year.  Do you have it in a well sheltered spot?
