Oh how the garden grows…

I enjoy getting out in the fresh air and spending a time in our sunken courtyard garden. Here’s our little shady space…this is taken looking at our basement flat.

You can see our containers and pots…plus some trailing plants on the old walls. You can just see one of the arches on the right above my new little greenhouse.

Here’s how our little space is shaping up as things start to come back to life.

There are new buds forming on our weeping willow…


The mint that I thought was dead has sprung into life again and has some new bright green leaves…

Out of nowhere these lillies have suddenly grown. I can’t wait to see their pretty pink flowers again for the third year in a row…

The hyacinths are still in flower too…

and this hosta has started to make an appearance after dying back over the winter…

Over the past week or so I’ve noticed, what we think is a type of clematis, ready to flower again. Every year during April buds appear and by the end of April or early May we are lucky to see a fabulous display of white flowers hanging into our courtyard.

Stepping out of the flat I look up to the tall walls surrounding our sunken garden and can see so many buds waiting to pop open.

 

 

The buds look so delicate and elegant…

I can’t wait to see these in bloom…

There’s quite a bit of garden activity happening at the moment following the warm spell of weather, some sunshine and April showers. I’ll keep you posted on how things are looking over the next few weeks.
