This one's for you, Chookyblue.......

After reading Chookyblue's post about how she was given flowers I felt rather envious. I rarely get given flowers and when I questioned David about this he said he grew masses of flowers for me in the garden. And it's true - and what's more, now that the sun is coming out, they've decided to bloom. When I shared this with Chookyblue she suggested that I share my flowers - so here they are.


These lilies were originally planted by David's grandmother in her garden and we managed to get a few of the bulbs for our garden.


The anenomes are looking beautiful at the moment.


This is our big patch of ranunculi - I don't know if you can see it but they are just starting to come out but there are masses of flowers coming - I can't wait!


I think that ranunculi are my favourite flower - oh and poppies - and freesias (for their scent), and orange blossom - mmmmm I love orange blossom.

This last photo is what we have to look forward to - this was last year's crop.

These are my flowers to all of you!

Cheers

You’re David is a clever man!

Love to see all the flowers in your garden! I love ranonkels, that’s what we call them!

Thanks for showing your beautiful flowers! I also love ranonkels and I love klaprozen, that's what we call poppies.

Wow! What a lot of flowery springy goodness you've got in your garden-how lovely.

Kris said...

Such a pretty garden! Your man grows beautiful flowers. So much gorgeous colour! My husband is not much for giving flowers which makes us a perfect match because I love flowers in the garden best, not chopped off in the house.

I'm envious of your bulbs, love them. They last so much longer than a bunch in a vase, David is so sweet growing them just for you!

gorgeous blooms. The lilies are very striking - they make great cut flowers, but you're very fortunate to have a garden full of those pretty flowers.

Now that is what I call a bunch of flowers. The only bunches that I have received have been while TIm has been on deployment and they are extra special. What a lovely garden you have
