Thought i would share with you all some of the spring colours that are arriving here at Samovila..after such a cold Winter and some really nasty frosts it is lovely to see life is coming back into my garden.
We have not had enough rain at all and so i am already watering..it does not bode well for Summer….but we are having some lovely warm days and sunshine and myself and the animals included are making the most of sunpuddles and pretty colours..soon enough it will be hot hot hot and brown…
So let’s spring into the week…
Hellebores also called Christmas roses..rallied after a beating by the frosts
These Ranunculus are all starting to bloom….they were planted mid winter and I thought they had died
Wee little and wee wee little look after my pots on the verandah
Wanted to add a dash of colour in the back while we clean the mess and get the Catio organised..so these will hang along the length of the fence
The beautiful but deadly Euphorbia..the sap is what is used in poison darts! when the centres get little pods they pop out and you wonder what the noise is..but they shoot up everywhere..so I have been pulling them out even in the backyard..nature makes sure she finds a way to procreate!
Irises line the length of the front garden and the back..they are all doing really well despite severe frost bite..i have been pruning all the frost bitten plants and now they are happy again
Doc enjoying the sunshine
I planted these daffodils and have had a 100 percent success rate so I am really happy
Forrest enjoying the sun too
The mystery fruit tree..with the first little blossom ..small fruit fuzzy like apricots..ripe when green and taste like peaches..we call it the peachnectaapriplum tree …
Pickles getting a sunpuddle on her sweet little feet after her big week..
One of my greatest loves..the Grape hyacinth
Felix and Oscar enjoy a bit of free ranging before they head to the back paddock ..Jock was somewhere eating my wattle trees when I took this..
