Six on Saturday – From Our Garden and In Our Garden

16 Mar

I will get around to showing you our garden but I am so excited about the twin lambs born in the field behind our garden, just this afternoon! There were already one pair of twins and two singletons but these are brand new! What could be more beautiful than that?


Twins born this afternoon, on the longest zoom.

2. We have bought some instant purple, white and green for my Suffragette garden, Violas to be planted when the storms have passed. There are also two Lavender plants waiting to be planted in pots to be on the steps up into the garden, to welcome people with their scent. I’ll show you both as they get into their permanent homes.

3.   Talking of scent, we borrow the scent of this amazing tree from next door but my neighbour is away so I can’t ask her what it is. She will know – maybe one of my Dear readers can help.

Wonderful scent – what is it?

4.   Our Clematis Armandii is full of flowers and quite delightful. I did expect scent from this too but it is quite elusive. I am intrigued though by the blooms, some of which have four petals, some five and some six!

5.   There are buds on our Atlantica Glauca Pendula which we are training to form an arch as one goes up the aforementioned steps into the rest of the garden.

6.  I love the brightness of this Narcissi.

      So are our Montana. I love them too. I like the Armandii for its evergreen quality as well as its flowers. 🙂

    I think your white shrub could be AMOMYRTUS LUMA which has scented white flowers and then yellowish-orange berries OR a Myrtus communis (Common Myrtle). I have seen the first one at Trebah. The trouble is there are a lot of myrtles!

    Love the lambs. Ours seem to have been moved now 🙁

    Lovely to see these Spring photos of our gardens Sally! The white flowered shrub is a myrtle variety, I can’t remember which, but Di will know

    I love the idea of planting in purples. AND if you can add a scented purple flower that would really add the finishing touch

      Thank you for calling in and taking the time to comment. Hopefully someone else will know what the tree is or I’ll wait for Sue to come home! 🙂
