May in my Garden*~*

On Sunday we spent the day in the garden...

We bought a few plants,* Diascia, Viola and Antirrhinum* for the baskets from a pretty nursery at Edale in the Peak District the day before...
I filled the rest of the pots with homegrown seedlings..so fingers crossed they grow

Fin made me a cold frame so I filled It up!  as well as my little growhouse behind !



I planted geraniums in the old wash tub....



A plant shelf made from and old bath bridge....




The primroses have been flowering their little hearts out this year...




I love this Clematis it is so dainty, it reminds me of moths fluttering by....



The Spirea in the front garden has been beautiful...







This is a special place in my garden ...woodland and wild









A shy mummy Blackbird, she has babies in the hedge opposite...


The bird box did have a pair of Bluetits flying in and out but we haven't seen them for a while...

Well lets hope the sunshines soon...Hope you all have a Happy Week !

  2. It looks beautiful Thea and I love all your containers.I like to put plants in containers too and they are all dotted about the garden.It gives my granddaughter lots of pleasure tottering about with her little watering can watering them! (to be honest she ends up mostly watering herself!). I am going to buy some bedding plants for my 'hayrack' at the front of the house which I am hoping to plant up this weekend when hopefully all risk of frost will have passed.Thank you for your lovely comments on my blog too.X

  4. Your garden looks so nice, I always get the gardening bug back at this time of year, taking a look round the garden to day I have noticed I have pink,white and blue "Bluebells". Hope the sun comes out...

  5. Oh I've really enjoyed having a nosey around your garden Thea - it's always interesting to see other people's ideas - like the bath bridge and the cold frame. Those antirrhinums are such a pretty colour - my dad used to call them snapdragons when I was a little girl and show me how they opened and closed their mouths. Let's hope the weather picks up soon and we can get out and enjoy it a bit more x Jane

  10. Thea I love your beautiful garden! I especially like the way you've grown so many plants in the wash tubs and pails and pots! ... so creative and adding such interest to the garden. Your spirea is lovely (is this 'bridal wreath'?). One of my neighbours has a row of these and they're just starting to come out now. So many pretty spots in your garden. Good luck with the seedlings ... they look like they're all sprouting up well! Enjoy the rest of your week :) Wendy
