Growing in My Garden

This is our first spring in this house and I’m finding I have a few more plants growing in my garden that I don’t yet recognise, so it’s fun waiting to see what turns up in the end! I had no idea that ferns hibernate over the winter in a clump of tightly closed balls and slowly unfurl themselves in the spring πŸ™‚

  1. Ruth, I LOVE ferns. I think of them as they are in Laughton Forest near to us, and in the autumn they turn a beautiful colour. Also I think of them in the Lake District, Where they grow freely, and ha ve. Yello w. Poppiesamongst them. Beautiful. I am not surewhether we have any in our very small garden or not. Mi cannot remember w hat is there now!

    1. The old man who lived here LOVED his garden, so I’ve certainly got a lot to live up to… but I’m not really a fussy bedding plants kind of girl so it’s just a case of seeing what else he had planted over the years that keeps coming back, and starting from there… πŸ™‚

  2. Isn’t it lovely to discover new things about a new house and garden as you move through the seasons, and feel thankful to the previous owner for their thoughtfulness? Lovely photos of that Spring green and tight buds and ferns beginning to unfurl.
    I’ve just discovered your blog, late in the Challenge, and think it’s delightful. How you manage to write your daily post and others on top of it amazes me.
    I love the thought that you’ve returned to the place where you grew up and raised your children after 18 years away. Sadly, we passed through Inverness only very quickly about 34 years ago, when returning from a trip to Scotland with our then-20-month-old son–Edinburgh, then across to the Road of the Isles and Skye, then the ferry back and across to Inverness (the furthest north we got) before we had to return to England for my cousin to take an exam.
    Anyway, thank you for your blog and I will return.
    Take care and be well,
    J
