Our garden/backyard

This is not stitching related and if you want to pass over the numerous photos of our garden and go to read another stitching blog somewhere else, I totally understand :)

Starting by the back door and working round the garden, we have...

...a pot of irises.  Green mesh netting is because the cats STILL don't understand pots are not toilets!


I have no idea what this green variegated stuff is a we have had it for years.  What I do know is that the stuff is indestructible!  Nothing kills it, it's brilliant!


A few of the white crocuses.


This is our clematis that is 'supposed' to flower from June onwards...yeah right!


The only hyacinth that is out at the moment.  It's weird how it's just the one!


Pot of irises with a heuchera in the middle.


More white crocuses.


More of the green variegated stuff with a few crocuses, some irises and the greenery of the first tulips to be through.


More irises.


More crocuses.


Mini daffodils desperately poking through the foliage.


Close up of one of the irises.  So pretty.  It would make a lovely cross stitch without the background ;)



Some yellow crocuses for a change!

So pretty. We all need to stop and smell the flowers right? So I did...well I looked at the beautiful pictures at least. When I smelled them they didn't smell much different than my monitor haha.
