A Touch of Spring....... maybe

Today is the first day I have stepped outside since Sunday, I have had a bad stomach upset which the 'Doc' said was food poisoning. No one else got it so I must be a delicate person !! lol! Today is also the first day I have eaten!

The sun was shining and it was lovely and warm so I ambled down the garden.

The banana has collapsed again but as we know from last year it will grow back with avengance but hopefully I can reduce it back a bit before it takes off.

The Cordyline's growing tip seems to have been damaged, I hope not as it was looking so good last year!

The Bay has been hit badly this year, I wonder if it will survive, I have never seen it so bad. My Aunty had an enormous BayTree which she cut down everytime it got frost damaged and it always grew back, so I may do that.

The lawn isn't, its a mess or should I say a 'moss'!!!

By the time I got here I was 'plum tuckered out', so I sat down and soaked up the rays and enjoyed the view.... and there was no 'frogs spawn' usually we have our first lot in the next few days!!

Spring or a pretending spring, isn't spring unless you have snow drops!


  1. Your garden looks like a garden, Libby...mine looks like a desert covered in chaff on the tops of the plants from last year...though I do have snowdrops :)

  2. Hope you're feeling better. Libby. The bay does look as though it's taken the brunt of the weather, I hope it recovers. I'll keep my fingers crossed that you get some frogs spawn in the pond. We put a small pond in the garden last year so I'm hoping for frogs spawn too. It's lovely to see snowdrops in bloom again.

  3. I'm jealous!
    I want snow drops too...!
    I miss them so much.
    Unfortunately we do have the mossy lawn though. I think it's going to need a lot of TLC this year.
    Glad you are feeling better.

  4. I know we are slowly getting there with Spring but it seems to be taking ages. More sun would be a booster. Nice to see the Snowdrops at this time of year.
    Hope you start feeling better soon.
