April!

It's April! Buds are swelling, and spring flowers are blooming. It's been a lovely weekend so far, and looks to continue.
I mowed the entire lawn yesterday, a big job with a push mower. I usually do a smaller section each day, and then start all over again. But the lawn needed a good mow, and it was nice and warm.

My hyacinths are still blooming, soon they will fade.


Euphorbia looking much like an alien tentacle.

And the forget-me-nots have self sowed themselves all over, and are just beginning to emerge.

Have a lovely Sunday, and enjoy your gardens!

I always wish for smell-o-vision when I see photos of hyacinths! I really love the euphorbia too.

Forget-me-nots are fun - the more the merrier! You have some nice hyacinths, Salix Tree - love the yellow one!

I just started some Forget-Me-Nots by seed and hope to have flowers as beautiful as yours are :)

I also love the hyacinths!

My hyacinths are in bloom right now too. They smell so wonderful, don't they?

Enjoy the rest of your Sunday!

Your plants are lovely! Our spring flowers only just started a week or so ago. The crocus' were first.

I do expect that we might start mowing our lawn earlier this year. When the small bit of snow we got this year melted a few weeks ago the grass was still quite green underneath and seems to be growing already.

Isn't spring a wonderful time of year?

I love the picture of the Euphorbia. It really does look like something alien!

My garden has just emerged from its snow cover and so I can only dream at this point and enjoy seeing pics such as the ones here!!

oh Silvia! =^..^=

How lovely that you came to visit!
I see you have forget-me-nots too ... The tiny blue flowers all over the back lawn in my picture? Most are Forget-me-nots the birds gifted me with (or perhaps it was the faeries? Yes, could have been fae.)

The picture of the 'woodland' you liked is my northside back yard! I swear I bought the cottage because of the garden. Those that know me are laughing ... They know I am serious! I always say I bought a garden with a cottage ::smile::

So wonderful to see your garden ...
I am greedy and can hardly wait to see more.
I simply ADORE your new blog look!
We are so alike, aren't we.

I must dash off to take care of a little something ::peep::peep:: and then return to read of, Elisabet the horse chestnut! How exciting to look forward to her story. I am a tree hugger!

Later gator =^..^= love, zU

Your Euphorbia is really beautiful Silvia, I just bought me another one too! Yes the weather was gorgeous here too, until the change came yesterday and today it's all grey. My Forget me nots are not yet blooming. Let's all hope for good weather for the upcoming Easter weekend! Happy Easter to you! Hugs Carol xox
