Tuesday View (18th March)

Where did this last week go?

Here’s today’s view…


Let’s zoom in today…



I always feel that time passes far too quickly at this time of year. It’s time to stop a moment and drink in some of that sweet smelling air, absorb all that spring sunlight, and rest the eyes on some beautiful flowers….

Pulmonaria “Sissinghurst White”


Pulmonaria angustifolia ‘Azurea’




Viola odorata ‘Sulphurea’


TulipaΒ kaufmanniana “Early Harvest”


Crocus Γ— cultorum ‘Jeanne d’Arc’






Have a lovely week and hope some sunshine comes your way.

    • I’m surprised how much I like this one and the white crocus too. I planted some white Narcissi last autumn, but no sign of them yet. Maybe need some white tulips next… πŸ˜‰

    • Luckily it’s not too busy for me with my garden – Once I’ve cleared the winter debris away from the rockery there is not much I can do except enjoy the display, otherwise I’d trample all the bulbs! It’s late April and May when I have the most work… weeding! πŸ˜‰

  1. I feel the same way about early spring flying by, you miss a few days and it seems everything has changed. There’s so much to do but I still try and sit back and just enjoy the return of sunshine. It just feels so good to soak it all up!

    • oops, I forgot to mention the viola. I’ve never seen anything quite like it with the yellow and purplish flushes. Do you like it? The color looks like it might not stand out well in the open garden, but it sure looks nice close up.

      • I have a lot of small plants in the rockery like the viola that look best when lying on the ground! πŸ˜‰ I definitely need to put some stepping stones in, as everything seems to face away from the path, especially the hellebores and daffodils!

  2. Your spring looks like it is in full swing. I agree with earlier comments, the violas are beautiful, I haven’t seen that color before. Thank you for the pictures, as always beautiful.

    • When I planted them a few years ago I was expecting the violets to be really yellow, but they are more apricot colour I think. I love the hints of purple in them. And they have spread all down that side of the rockery! πŸ˜€

      • They look wonderful! The only ones I have seen here are the the purple and white. I might be wrong and just not know where to look for them here. Thank you for sharing your photos!

  3. Thank you for showing us your beautiful spring . . . such a difference to many other parts of the Northern Hemisphere. Work loads do not always allow me to comment these days, but always enjoy your garden offerings . . . may the breezes blow soft . . .

    • Nice to hear from you Eha. We’ve had such a mild winter and early spring, I wonder what the rest of the year has in store for us… Take care! πŸ˜€

    • It’s such a treasured one Jason… it starts flowering as soon as it pokes its head up and just gets taller and flowers on and on and on! It closes up in grey or damp weather, but opens really wide when it’s sunny and the bees love it!

    • I’m very happy with that Pulmonaria Andrea – in fact all my different ones are starting to open including a bright red one! Hope you are getting some spring weather too. πŸ™‚

    • I will make the effort to stop and enjoy tomorrow too, as we have got such beautiful weather for a couple of days… a taste of what is to come I hope! πŸ˜‰

  4. Wow – that Tulip lives up to its name! It IS early. I know what you mean about spring. Because I am already outside and able to do those gardening tasks which I had to pack into such a short space of time last year, I don’t feel the same sense of urgency about spring this year. Of course, by next week, I will probably have spiralled into panic mode.

    • Same here! I’ve been taking it easy for far too long and will be rushing to sow seeds soon! This time last year the only thing flowering was the hellebore, and we had snow on the ground!

  5. Lots of color Cathy love it! I think it will be May before I see any though in the bedroom I have a 4 shelf greenhouse and all my plants are an inch tall πŸ™‚
