I love Spring Sundays when the garden comes into bloom. It’s been busy in the garden this Spring, re-potting Dahlias, nurturing our Peonies and sowing Wild Flower Seeds.
The stars of the Spring show so far have included our beautiful Cherry Blossom Tree, which gives the most amazing display of bright pink bloom, framing the bench like a canopy for a secluded relaxing space.
The surprise of this spring has been a Lilac tree which didn’t blossom last year but this year its been growing and now proudly shows off its pointed cones of lilac perfumed petals.
Not forgetting the rush of Ranunculus, these crimson and pink rose like flower heads float high on slender steams, so perfect and symmetrical its hard to believe they’ve been created by nature. Worth mentioning Ranunculus is the florists friend and makes a fantastic cut flower.
Its going to be a gardening day today, pruning and potting…..Ma and Pa Simpson are visiting and the plan is to work on our new SheGola, a Shed come Pergola, complete with decking and BBQ area…..
Speaking of which I think this afternoon could be the perfect time for our first BBQ of the season…
Lovely Spring Sunday, pottering in the garden, DIY and Al Fresco dinner…..
Enjoy your Sunday
Love DSB X
