Through the Garden Gate April 2018

The garden has been transformed this month and is full of colour. The forget me not's seem appropriate as I have been off the blogging scene for a few weeks! I haven't forgotten you just a bit overwhelmed with too much too do!








So I am just leaving you with some images of  tulips from the garden - my favourite spring flower. I increase the range every year and most of them seem to return, just like me I hope to resume blogging soon too!

What is happening in your garden this month? If you would like to join in with Through the garden gate each month please let me know in the comments below and I will add your site.

  4. Lovely photos of tulips and forget me nots. I’ve seen a lot of forget me nots this year and we haven’t any in the garden. They look so beautiful with the tulips. Something I need to remedy I feel. B x

  5. I noticed that you also have some wild garlic growing amongst the forget-me-nots - do you make pesto with it?
    Hoping that the overwhelming things that you have to do are also enjoyable too.

    1. Yes I do make pesto with the wild garlic there is nothing like it. The wild garlic has been in the cutting flower border since we arrived. The patch has got larger but I do try to keep it in check. It soon goes over if we have some sunshine! Sarah x

  7. Your forget me nots are lovely! Suddenly I realise I don't have a single one and wonder why.. in previous years we've been overrun! But it is Spring at last, if we whisper it maybe. Here's my link:

  8. Tulips are my all-time favorite flower! I dig up (yes...and discard) all my tulips and start fresh each year. I just love doing different color schemes each year!! Yours are just gorgeous: what is that first one with the touch of yellow? I'm always looking for new and unusual... Enjoy the spring Sarah.

  9. I love your tulips dotted around the Forget-me-nots. This has given me ideas for planting in our autumn garden here in Canberra. Enjoy spring, it is such a busy time, but wonderful to see everything blossoming!

  10. I get so excited when I see tulip leaves coming up in the borders after winter - for me, that's a real signifier that spring is on its way. My tulips are almost over here, as are the forget-me-nots. (They'll need to be cut back before they seed everywhere!) Your antique pink tulip is just gorgeous - do you know which one it is, Sarah? I'd love some of that in the gardens here.

  11. There's always so much to see in your garden. It's looking lovely and colourful :)

  12. I used to get lots of forget-me-nots in my previous garden which self seeded all over the place. I have one tiny little plant in my new garden which I found growing in a pot brought from the old garden. I will have to nurture it as I am quite missing all those blue flowers.

  13. Dear Sarah,

    Have been thinking of you - forget-me-nots are such sweet flowers and always love putting them in a posey. Your garden is looking gorgeous with the tulips.
    Not a lot to show here as the magnolia trees are loosing their leaves and the roses are coming to the end of the season. autumn leaves are falling and leaving a carpet on the ground.
    Hope all is well with you and your family.
    Sending hugs
    Carolyn

  14. Just beautiful Sarah. Lovely color in your garden. I have grown forget-me-nots a several years ago, maybe I will give them another try and they are so pretty. Your post put a smile on my face. Have a lovely day!

  15. Tulips are my fave too but with the deer, I can't plant them. And being laid up, I can't even get out to work in the yard yet so mine is lagging. Hoping soon tho! Thx for sharing your beauties!
