    Oh that's beautiful @Teigr!

    When I get the time I'll post a few pictures of our garden last year  :) Right now it's quite ugly, we just weeded and ripped out everything that died over the winter so it's quite the mess! Planting to begin soon though.

    The photos were taken the year before last @Jimm_Scope(in June I think),the garden's not looking too bad at the moment though.

    The camellias and magnolias are blooming and we have lots of daffodils and primroses in the borders.

    Lovely garden and flower pics!! I did my garden lovely last year and was proud of myself for achieving that. This year as I moved house in January I have to start all over again.

    I did manage to cut the lawn yesterday but what I found wasn't pleasant -rolls eyes- the dreaded Chafer grubs have been having a field day in my lawn and ruined it. Now I have to get rid of those and put new seed down. 

    I have sowed some seeds in trays and they have germinated, yay! but a lot of work to do this year. I feel wore out just thinking about it.  :#
    I would appreciate it if members wouldn't tag me please. I have all notifcations turned off and wouldn't want a member thinking i'm being rude by not replying.
    If i see a question that i know the answer to i will try my best to help.

    I'll try to post here whenever we (and by we I mean my partner) have something new to show about the garden!

    Also, those flowers look lovely @Teigr and @Sandy_123. Sorry those didn't return last year Sandy, do you know what kind of flower they are so you could maybe replant them?

    What beautiful plants you have you must have a lovely garden to enjoy, I love roses some of them give off some wonderful scent.
     My garden needs a lot of work sadly starting with a new fence as all this bad weather blew some of it down. I have some pots of lavender out on the front and a white roses bush and two small holly topiary 
    in pots, I'm itching to get it sorted so I can enjoy the garden.

    Really loving the photos.

    Theses were some of my skyscraper Lilies which took me few years to get the colours I wanted. All grown in pots. 
    But last year the whole lot was trashed during the night. Someone came up our lane They were out front in my tiny garden. In pots

    @Ada are those the giant lilies? I grew those a few years back they came every year but with each passing year they didn’t grow as tall.

    Beeyootiful lilies @Ada.

     I only have so many roses @Zimba because when our daughter was a lot younger she'd insist we bought her something every time we went to the garden centre,she always chose roses.
