Monday’s Meander Around the Garden

Well today’s meander was more of a quick whizz, as the weather was decidedly inclement! We’ve had every variation of weather this week; warm, (well, mild!) cold, sunny, raining, hail, snow, wind…often all on the same day! A friend who has just moved over from America is beginning to understand why we always comment on the weather and why we all dress in layers, as the layers can come on and off several times in a day!! It has certainly not been what I would call good gardening weather, being a fairweather gardener!

Cherry blossomFrom our conservatory (where it is dry!!) I can see a really pretty miniature cherry blossom, it’s very dainty and just coming into flower. The perennials are beginning to shoot up and some poppies are growing fast too, these are biennials, so they just have green growth one year, and then flower the next and set seed. I’m pretty sure we’re due for  flowers this year, I thought they might have staggered a bit by now, as they’ve been in several years, but it’s strictly every other year!

The deep pink camellia is still looking good and the daffodils are looking cheerful, there’s lots of other bulbs coming up now as well, alliums and camassias, tulips and muscari. Primroses and cowslips have been in flower for several weeks now, brightening up shady corners. It can’t be much longer before my magnolia flowers…


About craftycreeky

I live in a busy market town in Yorkshire with my husband, kids, dogs and chickens. I love trying new crafts, rediscovering old ones, gardening, walking...anything creative really I started this blog after my New Year resolution worked so well. My resolution (the first one I've ever kept!) was to post a photograph of my garden on Facebook every day. My hope was that I would then see what was good in the garden and not just weeds and work, which was my tendency. The unexpected side-effect was that I have enjoyed many more hours in the garden. I am hoping that 'The Crafty Creek' will have the same effect. Happy creating!

    It’s been awful hasn’t it, one obelisk down but that was looking dodgy anyway!
