March Colour

I have not been out of the house at all today. I have spent the day organising my computer files and backing everything up. One of those jobs that I intend to do and never get around to, thinking one more day won't matter. I should know better as I did have a total computer crash a couple of years ago. After my daughter Janie lost all of Olivers photos in a computer meltdown recently I thought I had better make it a priority. I know I should set a date once a month but I have always got more interesting things to do on my computer. Just a quick look at some March colour


And the topiary that gives some interest to the garden in the Winter and some structure in the Summer.
All these pots have been started from cuttings or plants not more than a few inches. The standard Bays began their life as 3 inch plants and it has taken me about 12 years to get them to this maturity. Worth it in the end as they cost so much in the nurseries.

Hi Barbara! I just browsed through your beautiful blog, and it's very refreshing! Such a sense of peacefulness in your pictures of scenery. And as a grammie, myself, I can relate to your love for that little sweetie of yours. He is so cute!
Thank you for your sweet comments and for visiting me. I will be back to read more.
Blessings,
Karen
