The Garden Diaries: March






So much newness, so much colour. The garden is really getting going now. I can't wait to see what it holds for next month.

Camellia and early evening sunshine / daffs / the first anemone / blue and buds / flowering currant / japonica

March has been a month of seeds. After finding a few packets of out of date seeds, I've got about 30 pots of sweet peas in the conservatory, along with cornflowers and a few toddler-planted sunflowers. Sorting through the stack of veg seeds, I can see April will be busy with getting things planted too. Once I get myself organised and sort out putting in the raised beds at the bottom of the garden.

    1. Me too - so much colour! I think the previous owner of our garden loved them too - we have 6! x

  2. Gorgeous photos - I can barely believe it's nearly April. Such smashing light in these, especially that top one. The pink petals reminds me of gathering some up as a child with my best friend who lived a couple of doors down and making 'perfume' in her dads garage. sorry, that was totally off-topic but it's just one of those moments when seeing a photo takes you back in time.
    Thanks for joining in and sharing x

    1. Thanks Annie - and I can remember doing the same with petals I'd collected on the school playground! x

  3. Absolutely gorgeous photos. I'm loving the colour starting to appear in the garden and can't wait for the blossom now. I need to get my act together - so much seed sowing to be done.

    1. Thank you. Yes the colour is very welcome after what feels like months of grey and brown! I too have many more seeds to sow - need to get cracking.

  5. Beautiful first picture! I can't believe you have roses blooming like that! A gray rainy day here, but April showers, bring May flowers!

    1. I don't think I've ever heard that April showers rhyme - I hope it's true for your garden and mine! Those are camellias in the first pic - look very like roses in a way, but bloom much earlier and don't have the scent (unfortunately, otherwise that bush would smell heavenly!)

  6. Beautiful photos, I especially love camellias and japonica. You have reminded me I have cornflowers to sow (along with quite a few other things, it's that time of year!).

    1. Thanks CJ - glad to have reminded you about the cornflowers, they're lovely aren't they? I've needed that reminder for the past few years though - the seeds I've sown this spring were bought a few years back and forgotten about...whoops!
