Linda was wondering what the euphorbia that she had in her garden would look like at this time of year so I got Paddy to take a photo of it today. This plant was planted about three years ago and is a plant well worth growing. Another nice day in Waterford, the south coast seems to be having better weather than further north.

Winter Was Back Yesterday With A Vengeance

Winter Was Back Yesterday With A Vengeance

We woke up yesterday morning to a garden covered with snow. It was lovely, very cold and bright after the last few weeks of mild dull weather. The spring bulbs were hardly seen with the amount of snow that fell, but with the sunshine, the snow was gone by lunchtime. Was unable to log on yesterday to put up a few photos, but better late than never.

These are up in the last fortnight or so - Eremurus given by Fran last year. They look promising. 


Also, I have added photographs to Mary's album, March 2013.http://www.garden.ie/post.aspx?idpost=36623

March Album 2013

Another wet dull day which reminds me of last summer. Paddy went out to the garden yesterday and took a few photos of primulas and a few other little plants which were putting on a show despite the miserable weather. The second day of this rain and I am starting to get house decline but hopefully the weather will improve tomorrow. We have Dermot O'Neill's programme to-night and really looking forward to Gardeners World tomorrow.

Hydrangea Pruning

Last Wednesday Paddy and myself started to prune the hydrangeas which takes us the whole day. It is the only work that has to be done on the bed for the rest of the year apart for the odd weed that needs removing. For such a show over the summer months it is well worth the effort. Having had such a mild winter some of the hydrangeas had not lost all their leaves and remained looking good over the winter months.
