    I planted loads of tulips in the autumn, but not that many have come up, must have been the cold wet winter that rotted them.

     Here is a bit of a new bed I've been making, not finished yet. Been away for 10 days and the clematis "Early Sensation" was in tight bud, now it's out.

    Is it just my computer or is there a problem with photos? They all have a white band above and below them and when you click on the photo it doesn't do the enlargement it did before.

    ^ a nice looking country garden there... I've also lost a few tulips I had in pots...

    I seem to have the very same little red primula that Happy Marion has above, I really like the colour.

    Most people seem to have a flowering currant in their garden, this one is Ribes 'Koja', which I find to be more upright and profuse... a little redder in bud..

     

    Veronica 'Georgia Blue', an alpine plant that needs sun and good drainage...

    evergreen and sprawling ground cover...
    ...

     I hope these photos are satisfactory, they've not been coming out too well lately, and it's not just me it seems... let's have a go...

     

    edit: no I don't like those at all, I'm not putting any more up until they do something about it... it's not the same as it was, don't you think...? they seem to be centralising the images with a white border top and bottom and you cannot enlarge them either... most unsatisfactory  whoever is responsible for that...

    Salino, I did not get any of your pictures at all and you're right about not being able to enlarge any more.  i'll see what can be done about it.  My tulips both in pots and planted in the garden have been mind boggling.

    ...^I'm sure they have happymarion, and it would be nice to be able to enlarge them especially when one is looking at a rather smallish screen, as I am here... at this rate I shall have to get a magnifiying glass...image

    I would like to have had a closer look at that Clematis of Busy Lizzie's but to no avail... never mine, teething problems...

    Thought you might like to see some of my spring flowers - snakeshead frittilaries are one of my favourites ...

    I had nearly given up on my violas - but now they are going strong.....

    and here are my daffodils, planted up in things we found abandoned in our garden when we first moved in - I love the water barrow, and the square container has "Walls" stamped on the front - it must have been used for ice cream !

    Oh, they are lovely, chicky.  I do wish we could see the photos enlarged.

    Thanks Marion - I guess the technos will get on the case on Mondayimage

  • I do so love seeing all the photos. Hope the problems can be sorted out soon, so that we can see them properly.
