A Year in the Garden

The garden is slumbering, and I am waiting patiently for hundreds of tiny bulbs to explode into bloom.

The first snowdrops are already welcoming visitors:

 

However, the majority of my spring bulbs are only poking their heads tentatively above ground. I think they are wondering “Will it snow?”

A review of the 2017 gardening year seems apt. Hence I am posting four seasonal collages to whet your appetite for 2018.

January/February/March

 

 

April/May/June

 

 

July/August/September

 

 

October/November/December

 

 

And so the cycle continues…

  1. Quite the floral frenzy! I can’t possibly pick a favourite collage – they are all stunning and representative of the wonderful constancy of nature in her rejuvenating, replenishing and slumber. I don’t wish the seasons away ever – I relish whatever we have …. after all, resistance is futile 🙂 Thank you for such a candied eye feast on a slightly grey January day

      1. Whereas here everything is taking quite the battering with hail, heavy rain and snow doing some sort of relay and looking set for the next week at least. But living here, one does expect it!

  2. Beautiful gardens! Can I ask where did you get the bird at your pond? Is it concrete? I have a 200 gallon pond that has gigantic (KOI size) goldfish that I have had for years and I have to put a deer net over it to keep the Blue Heron and Egrets from eating my fish! The egrets still stab the fish through the net and kill the fish but they can’t get it out leaving it for me…ugh!

  3. This was as delicious as the seed catalogs arriving daily in my mailbox. We in New England have a much shorter growing season, and our spring waits until well into April. I will enjoy yours vicariously.

  5. Brigid, I loved this pictorial remainder of spring and summer and all we have to look forward to -a beautiful uplifting post! The early bulbs always concern me as I’m worried they will be damaged by frost…yet they often seem hardy and survive to flourish. I’m so looking forward to the feast of colours you’ve shown us here! 😀

  6. So up,ifting to the spirit to see all this colour and be reminded that it is there waiting to burst forth, not long now! I have 3 snowdrops and quite a few crocus in bloom but they keep getting flattened by the hail and rain!

  7. Hello Brigid, I’m sorry I haven’t popped over for a while! It’s been so busy in the old house household that I feel quite run down. I really enjoyed this post but never commented! I love these round up type garden post. Your garden has done well. It’s interesting when i sit and look at my garden in the Colder Months that I forget what it was like in the summer! Lovely and I can’t wait until the spring really comes to our gardens. Xx
