Out in the Garden

After weeding for an hour and a half I was driven back inside by the mosquitoes, there are hundreds of the little blighters down there! But then I ventured out to get some photos as the garden looks so good this time of the year.
this geranium has been struggling but has produced some flowers

the lavender is heaving with bees

the wisteria has bloomed, the bees also love this plant.

the nasturtium is flowering 

this is a peony rose I planted about three weeks ago, so happy to see it growing so fast.


the echium is also covered in flowers and bees

the plum tree is covered in blossom, could be a good plum season this year.

the big fig tree has new leaf growth

the smaller fig tree has leaf and baby figs!

In the front garden I spied a bee diving headfirst into these flowers, the bees must love spring, so much food for them about the place.
Now I am off to do some sewing.
 Happy stitching.

Your garden is beautiful sorry that the mosquitoes like it so much, too! Lovely to have a fig tree. Spring is a lovely season. I visited the botanical garden at the university here on Sunday, it is a lovely place, too. Hugs, Valerie

Sue your garden is lovely! Your wisteria is ahead of mine. echium reminds me of my Mum she had it in her garden too. Naughty bugs for eating you!

What beautiful photos and blooms. Your garden is so much further advanced than ours, which is only just starting to wake up, and of course, your plentiful wet stuff from the sky makes a bit of a difference too.

Your garden is looking so pretty Sue. What a shame you have the mozzies. Your wisteria is way ahead of mine - it is just in bud here but no flowers. I am off outside soon Sue as the sun is out here for a change!

Beautiful blossoms everywhere! The bees are definitely having a Springtime feast at your place Sue....wonderful!

Angie said...

It looks like Spring has definitely SPRUNG there! I am sure you are basking in the glory of all that fresh growth (and it seems, so are the bees!) We are cooling down quickly and leaves are changing colors. So the world turns! Enjoy the rest of your week (hopefully with fewer of those nasty mosquitoes)!

Your garden has so much loveliness Sue! It's just a little ahead of ours. Interesting to hear the mossies are out and about already?!

Ondrea said...

Very happy spring pics. Our trees are slow to blossom this year. Gee, so many mossies already!

Ah, spring, anywhere in the world! What lovely photos you achieved. I like that I recognize some plants, and others are different ones I don't know.
