Spring has sprung!

Yes! Winter and all it's dark dreary cold days are beginning to recede! The weather forecast in my neck of the woods is still for more biting cold frost and ice and maybe snow to come but we have escaped so far from very bad conditions.Its been mighty cold recently which saw me indoors mostly looking out at the bare garden but I am enjoying looking at my snowdrops emerging and I am seeing one lone daffodil in flower too! Anyway here's to warmer weather on the way!
Happy Gardening!

On our recent holiday to Southern Spain I took this photo of the beautiful Bird of Paradise flower which was to be found growing happily along the promenades and at roundabouts. The hibiscus flower in red,pink and yellow was also plentiful,I must find a photo or two yet!

We visited a public park,named Paloma Park and came across this lovely cactus garden there,you would not want to stumble here!!!

Beautiful shape!

What great use of an old chair and some 

 pallets on the wall!
