This week on Tuesday Treasures, the photos are from last week on a lovely sunny morning when I took a wander around the garden with my camera. The garden is in a dreadful state, given that it is busy being overrun by weeds and neither of us has the energy to do anything about it – but at least some of legal plants are also putting their best foot forward, too.
Well, it looks as if the flowers are emerging victorious over the weeds! Lovely flowers… 🙂
Lol… I haven’t shown the weeds, yet:)).
It really feels like spring, Sarah. I’m sure once you are one hundred percent, you’ll be able to enjoy it even more:-)
Oh yes, I do love my garden – weeds and all:)).
Gorgeous, spring has sprung.
Hm… sort of! This being England, we had snow flurries again yesterday…
Oh, I know it can be rainy, I didn’t realize that you would still have some snow. So it is like our weather then, 70s one day, snow flurries the next.
We don’t get those extremes – being an island means the sea tends to even out our temperature swings. And the snow didn’t settle – but there’s no way our temperature would shoot back up to 70 the following day. Even if it was in the 60s people would be commenting… But we can get warm-ish sunshine one day, and snow the next.
Spring is such a lovely time, and flowers always put a smile on my face 🙂
Oh yes – it’s such a relief to see winter loosen its grip:))
Thank you, Rae:)).
What a lovely post on your garden! I am hoping–aaaaaall the fingers crossed–to till a bit of earth by our front door and plant a bag of seeds. Will it take? I’ve no idea. But now that we’re in mid-May, the ground should be done freezing at night so I can plant without fear the seeds will freeze. We’ll see what happens!
I hope your planting plans have worked out, Jean! Though, it’s never a certainty where gardening is concerned. Best of luck:))).
Alas, the seeds still sit in the house. In my meager defense, this week it will be over 90 degrees and there’s little water, sooo it’s for their best interest that I continue procrastinating. 🙂
Oh yes – the seeds would have fried for sure in those kind of temperatures. You’ve done the right thing in holding them back. 90+?? Yikes! We have had a wet, chilly May and the last week has seen a bit of sunshine, so everything is very lush and green here. Especially those weeds…
Hey, weeds help create a “natural” habitat. Just say you’re doing it for the pollinators, lol!
Oh, I absolutely have been claiming that – left, right and centre:))).
Hee hee! I know Bo’s been talking about getting lilac bushes again to make our front yard look presentable, but talking about them and getting them are two very different things. 🙂
Blimey! Do lilacs cope with those temperature swings?? I would have thought you’d need something tougher!
Oh, we got tough lilacs in this state, too!
Good to know! I’m guessing there are varieties that can cope better with certain conditions, too:))
