My passion in life is gardening and specifically growing flowers from seed

Aquilegia flowering

These have a bit of a take over mission in my garden if allowed as they spread so easily but at the moment look so pretty

Seeds sowing 2022

I sowed the first row of seeds last Monday and so far only have 8/15 of the Tithonia showing their heads.

I’ve just sown the bottom row today. The Ammi and Cerinthe are new to me but good for bees and wildlife so I thought I’d give them a try

Pasqueflowers

I’d actually forgotten that I’d planted a red one as well as the white and purple varieties

Cherry tree blossom

Apple Blossom

I wish I could tell you it smells nice but my sense of smell has evaded me as I currently have COVID- I hope it returns soon as I love growing scented plants in the garden and I would like to smell them!

Magnolias

I’m cheating again slightly here as the second picture isn’t actually of a tree in my garden but is so pretty I could t resist including it here

First camellia of the year in my garden 2022

Sorry to bombard with posts after being quiet for a while! Spring is my favourite season as I love seeing new things pop up in the garden every day and signals the end of winter (hopefully). I’m quite impatient in wanting to know if some plants have survived or not and so far it’s looking quite good.

Blossom on the Almond tree (I think)

The only daffodils to flower in my garden this year

These tête-à-têtes are the only faithful daffodils to flower this year. A few others have come up but not started necessarily with buds but these have been in the trough for years and faithfully return every year. They really brighten up the garden.
