We had a great catch-up session this lunchtime with Tuesday Treats, with many of the group joining in. It’s wonderful to know that so many of us are still alive and kicking.
Here are a series of images from two of our gardeners, all taken in recent days. So, you are invited to take a little walk around their garden. Enjoy!
It is Tuesday, isn’t it? I’m losing all track of time…
So assuming it’s Tuesday, it’s time for Tuesday Treats, and I have another Nature Table for the Gardening Groups – and anyone else – to have a crack at. Again, these all come from Dunham Massey.
See what you make of the following, and I’ll come back after Friday to edit it for the curious, and put in the names.
Well? Answers on a postcard, please… :~))
Today’s little cheer-up is from a gardener who has some not-often seen plants in the garden.
First is a lovely striped and flecked camellia.
And second is the Australian Philotheca myoporoides, otherwise known as the long-leafwax flower, or the gin-and-tonic plant.
Why the gin-and-tonic plant? Apparently it’s from the fresh, zesty fragrance.
Make mine a Campari, gin and lemonade, please…
One of our gardeners has created a new pond on her allotment. Apparently, most of the digging was done by her trusty assistant, Willow, although maybe her paws aren’t quite suited to that fork. This is the pre-pond work-in-progress.
And here’s the finished article.
Just waiting for a few frogs and toads to come hopping by.
Good work, Willow!
Sometimes, we get caught up in the events of life, and forget to look to the future. That can happen with spring bulbs. We need to remember, in autumn, that it’s time to plant some bulbs for the future. This gardener was only too happy that she’d remembered to do that.
They certainly give a lift to the spirits.
What does the furnishing of your doorstep say about you, and the welcome you might offer to visitors? Well, when we aren’t locked up, at least…
Here are some images from one of our gardeners showing doorsteps with a lovely spring welcome.

Is your doorstep sunny with spring?
We have today a little collage from one garden – tulips, and drumstick primulas, star magnolia and pasque flower. There’s no season quite like spring!
