Does anyone know what the name of this tree is? It is a variety of cherry…………….. I think from Australia originally. It has these fluffy blooms at this time of year and bunches of small inediable black fruit later.
It is about 12-15 feet high.
These are some of the plants I bought at the garden centre yesterday.
I also bought, Cosmos, and Rudbeckia, a couple of small shrubs. Some Osteospermum and some Gazanias Some Begonias for a big pot in the front garden and a few Diascia for hanging basket. Quite a haul really! None of these are in flower though so I will show them later when they bloom.
Should be great later in the year.
I took a few more shots of the garden and some plants yesterday.
The roses are doing well at the moment as are a number of other plants. So I thought I would share them today.
it was a lovely sunny day today so I went and sat in the garden for a bit and then took a walk around.
Here are some general views
Walking towards the house
Now I need to go and get some more plants. Always a pleasure!
Here is the latest page from my online course with Donna Downey. For this one we were asked to use watersoluble crayons or pastels etc. and to moisten them with white acrylic paint. This enabled blending and made the surface more permanent.
As I was taking these shots I looked out of the window at the front garden and saw that the light was lovely. This was taken through the window glass.
This was an assignment for Sketchbook Skool.
Some of the flowers in my garden today… warts and all! 🙂
It’s amazing what can be found when there doesn’t to be much in flower. The garden is being given a good tidy at the moment so should look nice in a week or two. If only the rain didn’t keep forcing the gardener away!
The following few were taken by my neice Karen this evening
Today I am going to share the images so far in the book that will eventually be mine to keep. In this round there were six different stitchers.
Didn’t they all do well? I will now be working with 7 different stitchers and have the first book here ready to work on. Now…….. what shall I do this time?
Watch this space!
