April 21st

The weather so far this month is very changeable, fairly dry but cool with a few light frosts, but recently a few warmer days.
But the warmth is due to go away this weekend with colder air taking over again.
I have power washed the paths and brick edging in Lyn's garden ( while she was out one afternoon).
It does make a mess to start with, but in the end looks much cleaner.

I have not power washed the Exotic garden yet as I need to get all the Brugmansia out of the conservatory and get them out of their pots, to get some new soil in.
It can make quite a mess, so best done first.

We have been taken over by all the plants we have raised from seed, I only heat the greenhouse to about +7c at night, so the more tender seedlings have to come indoors with us!!

Clematis atragene 'Brunette'

The new wall and fence on top looks a bit bare at the moment, which won't last long with the Climbing Roses and 
Clematis starting to take off upwards.



Birds eye view of some of Lyn's garden


Erythronium californicum 'White beauty'


New leaves on the Roses, we do spray them to try to keep the Blackspot off.


Tulips did well this year


And in the Exotic garden, which isn't at the moment, a few plants have made their way out of their winter
shelters. Seems like we are about a week later than last year.
