Even though the garden is looking messy and overgrown, I am loving the colours and the feel. It almost feels like I can see the plants growing!! I thought I'd share some photos and as I was loading them on I had this Deja vu feeling and realised that a lot of the shots are similar to those taken this time last year.
Again, these lavender bushes on the side have absolutely taken off (left). In my shot of them last year (right) I had only just planted them, and they were itty bitty little bushes.
Ok, this is truly embarrising as you can see all types of weeds coming up through the plants but I love the colour of these daisies and I also love the over grown may bush in the back.
Look how heavy with flowers the May bushes are. I think they are called May bushes, as they bloom in the spring and in the Northern Hemisphere May is spring.
There is a shot of this tulip 12 months ago here. I tried to reload it, but sometimes this blog stuff is just too hard.
I don't think I will get back to Floriade now before it finishes, so I am so glad I got a chance to go on the first day. Queen Elizabeth II will be here in a few days and they are going to spruce it up for her to have a look. Hopefully it will still look nice for her visit.
Have a lovely weekend!
