shared happiness

The most beautiful blue in the garden
Nearly there! Love this simple clematis. 
Instant happiness with a pot of freshly planted viola
I ca't remember what colour these will flower! Orange? Pink? 
Can't wait for these Rudbeckia to spread cheerfulness with their yellow flowers
These peonies have been going for more than 12 years! I moved them to a new spot two years ago and they continue to thrive
Aquilegia are always pretty and never let me down.
I was surprised to see my sweat peas growing but so vigorously after a cold winter
Lilly of the Valley, right outside my sewing room/office window. Can't wait to have the window open and inhale the fragrance. 

I thought I'd share a bit more happiness with you today. I took these photos last weekend, when it was dry and warm. Today, we had several short hail storms, wind and rain and I need a good dose of luck to get home dry today.

Thanks for all your birthday wishes, I enjoyed reading these and they have prolonged my post birthday high for a wee while longer. xx

  5. I love this time of year with all the promise that the garden holds. You've got some wonderful plants, your garden will be a riot of colour. My lily of the valley is already flowering, such pretty little flowers that look so delicate, though it's actually a tough old plant. We've got sunshine again today after rain throughout the night but it's much cooler than it has been.

  8. A joy to see all your gorgeous plants. So glad that you managed to extend your Birthday. Hope you managed to get home dry, sounds like the weather we are having here, not good.

  9. Missed your last post so belated birthday greetings to you. It's so heartening to see the garden waking up, isn't it? Even the one here is showing signs of life (probably due to the absence of trampling from four big paws).
