Gertie’s Garden, Early April.
“Talking to my Plants pays off” 🙂
Back from Normandy the first thing I notice in my untidy garden is how relatively tidy, and pretty, it is. It is also, however, in need of much TLC. The bark paths need redressing. The stone paths need thoroughly cleaning. A desperately rambling rose needs cutting right back, or re-directing, and the benches need washing and recoating with paint or varnish.
I suspect that the clematis clambering all over the arbour needs a haircut too, but it’s full of buds, so not this time!
There is already a lot of colour to add to the glorious hellebores from Winter and the early Spring primroses. I walked around a bit: walk with me and just look.
…and under the ribe, cowslips.
I pulled over five hundred sycamore seedlings from this raised bed before I stopped counting!
… and back to those hellebores!
Here, bluebells are already in flower, and I look ahead to clematis over the Arbour…..
….. and cherries for us this year!
