As promised the other day, here's a few pics of my garden. Most days the weather is glorious - perfect to be outdoors - but it's warming up. It won't be long till it's too hot to garden in the heat of the day.
A present from my Mum, this fern is about 18" tall. I do wish I knew how to propagate them - something I have to research.
Standing about 6" tall, the flower spikes on the ajuga plants are quite striking.
I've bought a few annuals to fill in gaps this year. I'm hoping the primulas will self seed next year.
This section of the garden is relatively new, hence the sparse planting. A couple of years ago, it was covered with madeira vine - an awful weed. It was hard work digging it all up!!! Every now and then another piece shoots, but I think I've almost eradicated it.
Bromeliads are a favourite. Not only do they look stunning, but they are so easy to look after and to propagate. Mum gave me this one for my birthday this year.
Originally from my Mum's garden, this delicate little orchid is an Australian native.
Mum and I both share a love of gardening, so I often mention her. Pots go back and forth between us, filled with newly struck cuttings and plants we've propagated.
Unlike many of you who live in the Northern Hemisphere, I can garden all year round. Each season has its stand out features, but for me, Spring is the best time outdoors. It's exciting to see the new growth and blooms emerging.
What's your favourite season in the garden?
