It is just over a year since the creation of cannonhill chronicles. I have had so much enjoyment sharing our lives and re-living our experiences and it never ceases to amaze me how many corners of the world this simple little blog reaches. Thank you to everyone who has stopped by, you are my inspiration.
One of my early posts introduced you to my spring garden. After a long, cold, wet winter, I had forgotten how beautiful and renewing spring can be. The days are warming, the sun is shining and the evenings are longer. The daffodils are in decline
but there’s no stopping the lilies
The crocuses are appearing in places new
as are the clivea
and Queens tears.
The orchids haven’t disappointed this year.
The bees are enjoying the diosma
and the waratah is in full bloom.
The first rhododendron has flowered
and nearby was my greatest surprise. The previous owners had planted a camellia in a very narrow bed against a shed wall. Rather than risk transplanting, I espaliered it a few years ago. Although it has thrived, it has never blossomed….until now.
Just the one so far but it is perfect.
we enjoy keeping up with your adventures, those blooms are amazing 🙂
I always look forward to your comments, Deb, thanks for following 🙂
Whenever I see a new cannonhill chronicle blog sitting in my inbox I look forward to reading the latest instalment. Congratulations on your 1st birthday! The camellia is gorgeous, no doubt the tulips at Table Cape are in full bloom now!
The Tulip Festival is next weekend, hopefully our wild weather hasn’t created too much damage.
I love spring time as well and all the beautiful flowers that come out to play … Lovely as always Kathy 😊🌺
Thanks Mel, I’ll bet your garden is looking colourful, too 🙂
Spring at your place and autumn here at Casa Debbio, your garden blooms as mine closes down for the winter. I love the Waratah!
I love the changing seasons in the garden, always something new to please us.
