A Stroll Round My Garden

It’s been a little while since I’ve shared what’s been happening in my garden here, so I thought that I’d indulge in my ever-growing passion for gardening today and talk plants, flowers and blooms, taking you on a virtual stroll round my garden.

Ever since the start of spring, I’ve been obsessing over and noticing everything out in my garden. It now looks so much greener than it did just a few weeks ago, and there’s been plenty of splashes of colour already. I think my favourite so far has been my Bleeding Heart…

I’ve enjoyed fillingย a fairย few vases with flowers from my garden so far this year…

I’ve planted more seeds out there, ready for this year’s cut-flower patch. I’ve been pleased to see that several of the flowers that I planted last year have self-seeded, too, andย I think I’ll have an abundance of poppies this year.

My peonies are coming up and I’ve spied some buds, so I’m looking forward to seeing those flower. I’ve also lots of alliums promising to bloom soon. I’ve yet to have any of my many, many roses flower, and I’ve some new ones this year, too, so I’m keen to see, and smell, those when they come out.

I didn’t really enjoy the vegetable planting last year, so I’ve decided to give that area of the garden over to the children to have as their own. Boo’s been excitedly choosing and sowing seeds in it, whilst Little Man’s been delighting in digging in it. Both of them are always overjoyed to find wriggly worms there! I do think it’s lovely for them to have their own garden, and Boo has also been cultivating some sunflowers indoors, ready to be planted out this weekend. She’s taken a great interest in their progress, so I do hope they fare well outdoors.

These are a few of the flowers that are making me smile out there at the moment…




And I’ve plenty of tulips, buds and seedlings pushing up and making me happy, too…

  1. It’s wonderful to see everything bursting into life. I love your bleeding hearts. I’ve been after some for my own garden after seeing yours on Instagram. I imagine the kids are going to love having their own patch of garden.

    1. They are lovely, I hope you find one soon. They’re probably in the sale sections in garden centres now as they’ll be going over soon x

  2. So many flowers in your garden already – I can’t wait to see your cut flower patch again this year!
    I did the whole veggies thing last year and am now torn between planting more or flowers for this year. I’ve even brought a few flowers in from my garden too – cheers me up no end seeing them sat on my desk ๐Ÿ™‚

    Thanks for joining in again lovely! Just in case you join in next week, HDYGG will be hosted over at Gemma Garners blog (link in this weeks post) as I’ll be on my hols xx

    1. I am so excited about it coming up, too! I’m going to go for flowers every time, I just can’t resist them ๐Ÿ™‚ x

  3. It’s great to see the colour coming back into the gardens isn’t it, and it looks like you’ve got loads already. Hope the kiddies enjoy their garden, I think it’s really important too go help them make the connection between growing and eating – looking forward to seeing how they get on ๐Ÿ™‚ #hdygg

  4. i’m always such a sucker for bleeding hearts. and those tiny green round flowers with the red center…. so delicate and pretty! had never seen those

  5. My daughter adores bleeding hearts so she was terribly excited to see some growing in our new garden. You garden and cuttings are looking gorgeous. I also think it’s brilliant to have a patch set aside for your kids.

    1. They are so pretty. Thank you, it’s all coming on nicely out there now, and the children are very happy with their patch x

  6. Gorgeous! Your little white flowers on jar look very Scandinavian ๐Ÿ™‚ Our rose bush is in full bloom but there are no peony buds yet. Lovely to hear your children are enjoying their own patch of garden!

  7. So much going on in your garden already – it’s lovely to see it all thriving after just a few short weeks isn’t it?

    I agree about the kids having their own patch of land, we don’t have enough room in the garden so ours have a little raised bed each at the allotment. Because it belongs to them, they take so much more interest, the love and care (and mud games obviously) that goes into them is just brilliant to watch.

    I’m envious of your cutting garden, this is on my list for next year and I’m impatient already! Looking forward to seeing yours in bloom soon ๐Ÿ™‚

    1. It really is, ad there seems to be more and more happening daily ๐Ÿ™‚ Oh, every garden should have a cutting patch, just gorgeous! x

  8. A lovely stroll around the garden! I’m looking forward to seeing your cut flower patch. I would love one!
