As you can see my small veg plot isn't doing anything as yet. During February when we had some spring-like weather we got the leaves all turned into the raised bed and it is raked over ready for some peas and lettuce.
Here I am in the middle of the back garden. This flower bed is what I call the OVAL GARDEN. All my flower beds have a name. If you notice the bed looks fairly empty except for some hellebores, windflowers and a few shrubs. The Dappled Willow on the left of the picture is just sending out some green and has little catkins on it. The Hinoki cypress Thoweil in the background is showing some light color on the ends of it's branches. I wish I could show you that up close. It is so pretty.
The planter that I have my hand on was just moved here in February. It has three small shrubs growing in it. They needed to get out of the planter so I moved one of them into the garden. I moved the sweet little shrub you see in the foreground in front of me and the hellebores to this site. Then I planted the other shub in the planter that had held the one in this picture. Are you perfectly confused now? Well, sometimes I get confused too.
As you can see though there is a lot of greening and growing into that needs to be done yet. Don't let that sunshine fool you. It is quite cold with the wind blowing here.
So what does your garden look like right now??
