Through the Garden Gate February 2020
The garden is an abundance of spring bulbs, which is such a cheerful sight despite the storms, high winds and endless rain that has been with us throughout February.
It has been another bleak month with little time spent in the garden due to the weather. Look more closely at this border and you can see how wet it has been. Luckily we live on a hill and the water does drain downwards. The flooding down in West Bay has rapidly seeped away unlike so many other parts of the country where the consequences have been so dire.
I have just purchased lots of seeds and bulbs so I hope next month's post will be have been more productive in the garden and with far less rainfall! How has your garden fared 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, it is always fantastic to see a range of gardens from all around the world, and share our love of gardening. Hopefully, I will discover some sunshine when I visit your gardens this month!
Watching high seas while standing safely on land, makes me oh so grateful not to be out there in a little boat!ReplyDelete
What a lovely post!! A feast of colors and shapes! We are covered in snow...and waiting for a storm in March because March always brings a storm. Thank you for sharing such refreshing images. The beauty of flowers is divine.ReplyDelete
It's very pretty in your garden, lots of flowers and great to see crocuses, I'm sure any early bees will be appreciative. The pond is nicely topped up in my garden, that's really all there is to say! Although there have been lots of birds lately, which is lovely. The sea picture is amazing and a bit scary. Driving over the River Severn the other day was quite invigorating. CJ xReplyDelete
Ahhh...you have restored by spirit. Spring is ages away here. We have heavy snowfall today.ReplyDelete
It’ very pretty in your garden, especially the spring flowers. The pictures are gorgeous. This time I wrote a little about my garden in English and I just hope it’s understandable.ReplyDelete
The daffodils and hellebores are a perfect combination. Like you we are looking forward to a calmer March. A little less wind would be lovely. B xReplyDelete
Despite the weather, your garden looks beautiful! I love the Hellebores against the Daffodils. Our weather over here has been up and down, but has definitely allowed me to work outside a few days a week. So much to clean up after winter! And the tiny weeds are just rampant in all my gardens...ReplyDelete
Your blooms are all so lovely and beautifully photographed. There are signs of spring here with Hellebore blooms and hyacinth bulbs starting to emerge but you are a few weeks ahead of us. I’ll just enjoy your blooms for now!ReplyDelete
Lovely Spring flowers , you have really cheered me up ! The lawn is too wet to walk across it ! It's going to be a very tough job cutting it now it has grown so long . ...but never mind my small problems , my heart goes out to those with the very frightening flooding we,ve seen on the news , I am so dreadfully sad for them .ReplyDelete
I absolutely love the combination of hellebores and daffodils in your border, such a cheerful sight! My spring border is added to each year - irises, snowdrops and ophiopogon went in last year and I'm hoping that as they fade, clematis, peonies and honesty will take over. We've not done too badly for weather here in London, lots of wind which has been challenging for my balcony plants and the rain has kept my fruit trees unpruned. I'm hoping for a week of dry weather to start to catch up!ReplyDelete
You have a lot more daffodils in your garden than I have, Sarah, they look so colourful. Our garden is quite new so I hope to increase the bulbs over the next few years.ReplyDelete
Your spring blooms are stunning, Sarah. Gives me joy to think my garden will look like yours in a month or so. I hope your garden dries out for your spring planting. I haven't ordered my seeds yet -- better get moving. P. xReplyDelete
Love those daffodils :) We are near springtime now...ReplyDelete
Love from Titti
Ahh. Daffodills and crocuses are my favorite spring flowers!ReplyDelete
What a lovely, colourful post! Sorry I'm so late to comment, life is busy at the moment and I don't get around to reading blogs so much.ReplyDelete
