These photos were taken at Lough Lannagh, Castlebar. My niece Patricia known locally as Pippi planted  them last year and the photos were taken in mid April. She is very interested in the environment.

Eilish, you mentioned your vine. My name was mentioned. I have had some success with it over the years. PCON you may be anxious to see the way the vine has gone this year.

While we normally think of yellow in the spring, the other colours are coming on. I took a photo of this Magnolia this week and the flowers are looking good. There will be many more later. A Happy Easter to all on Garden.ie.

Looking aroung the front garden, I had a look at the roses, while a 17 year old neighbour was mowing the lawn. Lo and behold, I noticed one rose, Abraham Darby. and the buds had formed. Surely a month before the narmal time, I couldn't believe it. I had decided early on to hire somebody to mow the grass. It was the first mowing this year. This does not mean that I am finished that work. While my neighbour was on his way to do the mowing, I had been trimming some hedges eg Hypericum. It had grown a lot. Despite the temperature being low, it would seem that the summer is not far away.
