Monday’s Meander Round the Garden

It’s been a lovely sunny spring day today, great for my WI’s walking group as we walked about 5 miles round the village of Beckwithshaw, saw  these gorgeous lambs in what is probably called a garth.

Before I left I had a meander around our garden…

Up round the pond the irises and the hostas are starting to appear, one particular clump of irises has gorgeous purple leaves when they first appear.I also noticed some little primroses just at the side of the path have decided to flower.


The magnolia stellata is looking beautiful, I think it’s my favourite tree in the  garden, I just love the delicate, papery blooms.

With the daffodils underneath it it makes quite a pretty scene. There’s still hours of work to do in the garden, but on sunny days like today I can appreciate what I’ve achieved in our garden!

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!
