Seasonal Celebrations

We’ve been celebrating Spring for the past week and enjoying lovely sunny days and the effect it has in the garden. My favourite tree the Cherry Blossom (type: unknown) is in full bloom and dropping the lovely petals to the ground which creates a magical snow-like look in the beds below. I can stare at this tree for hours, knowing that in two to three short weeks she will be covered in bright green leaves and the blossoms will be gone, until next year. So while I can, I enjoy the wonderful spectacle of this tree.

Lets take a look at some of the things I’m loving in my garden right now … (click to enlarge the photos)

Who me? No Mom! I promise I never trample on your plants …

It all looks very pretty and organised doesn’t it? Well … this is only a very small portion of my garden. The rest needs lots and lots and lots of work. So much so that I feel quite intimidated by it all. And with rain predicted for the coming weekend, I’m not sure I’ll make much progress.

I’m joining our good gardening friend Donna of Garden’s Eye View for her Seasonal Celebration. Pop over to see how our friends in the northern hemisphere are celebrating Fall (Autumn).

Happy Gardening

Dominated by large trees on a medium sized property, my garden is very shaded. With no “full sun” areas I have to plant shade and partial shade loving plants. I love shrubs and flowers including camellias and azaleas but Roses and Irises are my favourite and getting these to thrive is a challenge …

That Clematis was a great buy!! I have never seen so healthy a specimen. Now, the big question is where is going to go? 🙂

I love the look of the grasses and bulbs together under the silver birch. This is fast becoming my favourite patch in your garden. 🙂

Well, that area looks wonderful! Spring has so much to celebrate – but it brings a lot of work, too. I’m behind on my fall chores. There’s always something to do in the garden! That last pic is adorable! No, doesn’t look guilty at all!

Happy Spring Christine, I’m happy your garden is giving you such joy. Autumn is giving me joy here in Italy, it is cooler and we’ve had rain, the change of seasons is lovely. Christina
