I bought this Hydrangea a couple of months ago because I fell in love with the soft cuddly leaves!! Yes madness I know! I love the colour of the leaves too.  I was not expecting flowers this year as it is quite a small young plant but two flower buds have appeared. I think it is more valued for its big leaves than the flowers. Time will tell.

I bought this lovely Geum at the Mount Congreve plant fair last month €4 and just love it!!! Geums give such long lasting colour! 

The rain was badly needed last night! 

Have a good day!

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!

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!

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!

For me this is a must have plant in my garden which I first saw in The Bay Garden.  It flowers all summer long!!!! It does fall over a bit but I still love it!!! Also it is so easy from cuttings!!! 

Very wet today!!!

Have a great weekend! Think tomorrow will be better!!

I was very lucky to visit two beautiful gardens this weekend!! Periwinkle at Sea View and Rachel at Douentza.

This was my first time at Sea View and as always you have to be there to really appreciate it all, the fragrances and the beauty!! The garden is very wet under foot but it is incredible what Dorothy can grew!! I loved it and thank you Dorothy for your warm hospitality!!! 

Rachel's garden gets better and better each time I visit and I always see things which I missed like this stunning Robinia 'Twisty Baby', it was like a giant bonsai!  Rachel what is the name of the purple plant in the last photo - is it a salvia? Loved it!!! Thanks again Rachel!!

Morning!

Fran's journal on his beautiful Grevillea promted me to get out and take a photo of mine, the photo shows two plants in a pot which I grew from cuttings three years ago!  Three year's ago I did not even know what a Grevillea was!  I was out walking and saw the Grevillea growing in a public place and I thought it was a type of conifer!!!  I really liked it, took a few pieces (because it was huge!) and stuck them in!  I was amazed when they took AND when I saw the flowers come and worked out what it was!  Or maybe someone here told me what it was!!!!

So very easy to grow from cuttings!

I have not written here for a while, my new garden is still quite like a field and now after all the rain of the winter I found I have some serious professional drainage to put in over the next few months. I am on a hill so I never thought I would have this problem but the water from the hill is running under my garage and could affect the foundation and of the garage and the house.  It is a huge job with huge money, I have had a number of experts to look at it and there is no easy solution because of where the water is coming from and going to - so that is why it is costly!  We are talking about bringing in 100 tonne of stone!  Alot of my garden will be a mess for some time so all a bit daunting but has to be done!  Don't want the house to float away!

No doubt will be posting photos here of the destruction when it does happen!
