Through the Garden Gate March 2019
Another month has passed by so fast it's difficult to keep up with the daily changes that occurring in the garden at this time of year. In 'Through the Garden Gate', this year, as mentioned previously, I am focusing on colour combinations. This month I look at green and white.
|Euphorbia, tulips, Blue hyacinths and arabis white rock cress|
The colours of green and white are around us in the neighbouring hedgerows and fields this month,
|Wild cherry blossom|
|Another view of the rock cress, with the foreground catching the rays of the afternoon sunshine.|
|Thalia daffodil always one of my favourites. I picked some flowers for inside and their scent filled the house.|
The bees have been buzzing around the garden. I spent a while this morning just watching then fly from flower to flower collecting pollen. Can anyone tell me whether this is a mason bee?
|Fresh green leaves of the crocosmia montbretia|
I am delighted that this year the short lived perennial eupborbia oblongtata that seeded itself so easily in our previous garden has now after four years started to do the same here, however it looks as if I need to do some weeding around it!
Other highlights of the flowering garden this month include forsythia and the tulip.
On the cliff path there is a huge patch of white bluebells that I assume have originally escaped from a nearby garden!
On a morning walk earlier in the month we were delighted to come across some mad March hares enjoying the sunshine, The last time we saw a hare was in Ireland nearly twenty years ago so these views really made our day, luckily we had the long distance camera to hand.
What are the highlights in your garden this month?
It is always wonderful to see other gardens and watch their development during the year. If you want to join in with Through the garden gate each month please let me know in the comments below and I will add your site, last month we had such a range of gardens from all around the world.
Until next time!
