Day 3 - Flower garden

Thank you for your supportive comments yesterday, I'm glad that I'm not alone in the feelings I expressed. The girls ended up sleeping for 1.5 hours, which was enough of a recharge for all of us to enjoy our afternoon together. I even got to prepare dinner without girls underfoot.

I took a quick walk around the flower garden this morning. Reliving my past Friday flowers posts. Despite not receiving as much attention as it needs, the garden is rewarding us with spring blooms. The daffodils and snowbells are over, the tulips are at their peak and the ranunculus is just starting to get going. The new flush of growth on the box hedge is ridiculously green.

Oh my goodness your garden is looking lovely! I admire your ability to grow such gorgeous flowers. (I've always got great intentions, then it doesn't work out properly.) I'm glad your afternoon yesterday was better!

I just popped over to add my words of encouragement to your post yesterday (I'll e-mail you instead I think) but good grief your garden is absolutely incredible!!! I remember when you planted it out and I couldn't wait to see it as the seasons rolled on and just look at it now! So stunning Marian, you guys must be thrilled at how all of your hard work has paid off...xxx

Oh Marian, your flower garden is just lovely!!! I wish we had the space to have a garden as wonderful and fulfilling as yours! Watching your garden grow over time is a little bit inspiring.....I'm going outside to find some space for my own garden, which I will fill with happy flowers! xox
