Garden pictures...

Post  Cluelesskitty on Wed 04 May 2011, 5:46 pm

It's been a while since I gardened...
No energy at all this year, and the weather this Spring is just 'orrible.
But here are some pictures when I was in better shape, and so was my garden.

Clematis "Polish Spirit"


the same, up close


Chrysanthemum parthenium - Feverfew - for our M :]


common garden Daisy


That's just a beginning. I have more to show, if you can bear it.

But I would love to see your garden piccies, too!

Beautiful pictures Risa, I envy you with your climate, very much like the British climate, although you say it's not been that great this spring. When I have visited B.C. I loved the lush green everywhere. Here, the grass is only just starting to turn green, it goes brown in the winter.

In Calgary, the only thing that is coming up in my garden is my rhubarb and chives, and only just, we had a terribly long hard winter and spring and the forecast for
the next week or so is very unsettled.

Thanks for sharing the pics. !

Beautiful pics. We have the same clematis, I think. There are so many variaties and variations. Do you cut yours all the way back in February and it grows just as crazy? I never knew the name of it.

This doesn't show much, but it's a shameless attempt to show off my little man. Smile

Yeah, what a cute Mohawk Gnome you have in your garden, Milo! Smile


here's more of my gardening over the years:

Campanula glomerata or simply Clustered Bellflower


biennial Campanula 'Canterbury Bells' or also called 'Cup and Saucer'


my Hydrangea, just starting to turn a blue color


and this actually is an inside cactus species called "Old Man" which blooms once a year
unfortunately a kind of fungus has killed it after a few years in my new home...


The bloom on this cactus last only one day, at most two,
but it takes at least a week or more for the stem and the bud to develop.
Well worth to wait for.
Oh, and the flower had a delicate, perfume-y - soapy scent.
