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


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!

Spring bulbs 2022

April 2022 in my garden


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


I feel like I’m cheating a bit here because this is a house plant and my blog is about my garden but I really want to share this picture and it’s a good job I took it when I did because the flowers are fading already.

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.
