Today's garden pictures are from a cottage in Lenault which belongs to friends and where Simon and I have been working today. We were busy chipping branches that had been cut from overgrown trees and as I dragged them to Simon and the chipper I was amazed to see how much colour was still in the garden was and how each season seemed to be present.
Summer was there in these geraniums still in flower and still putting our new leaves and buds:
For autumn a whole wall of hydrangeas was there to cheer my aching limbs (who knew how heavy tree branches can get after a few hours!) ...
Winter would not be winter without holly, although sadly this one did not have any berries:
Oh and logs for a winter fire:
And with the amazingly mild weather we are still having (14ºC yesterday) some spring flowers are a bit ahead of themselves:
|Greater Perwinkle - Vinca major|
|Elephant Ears - Bergenia|
|Primroses - Primula spp|
How is your garden growing - how many seasons can you find out there? As many as we have here in Normandy?
