Rock bed

We’ve built a rock garden around one of our Oak trees in our back garden, I’m really enjoying the lovely flowers!

Have a great weekend!

At last, the weather is warming up!! I’m SO ready for Spring, the garden is waking up slowly, buds and blossoms are appearing on the trees and the grass is turning green again. We’ve planted Gerberer Daisies and Primulas all over the place. They are such happy looking little flowers!

Hope your week is lovely
