Some Colour Already.

Despite things being very new in the garden, I can’t believe there’s colur showing already. I couldn’t resist going out with my camera phone.

The first flower in the Clematis Arabella

This was left by the previous owners, but I’ve no idea what it’s called. Any ideas?

Only a Yorkshireman could manage to buy a tomato plant with two plants in the pot!


The Pyracanthia is doing well and seems to be happy.

Aquilegia Black Barlow. Sorry it’s a bit blurred.

This Fuchsia was in a basket by the door when we moved in. It was very dry. I’ve given it a good watering and planted in the garden. It still doesn’t look too happy though..

Trachelospermum Jasminoidea Jasmine. It’s just opening and smells lovely.

This Hydrangera is a Mother’s Day present. I hope it keeps this colour. I love it.

I’ve never had a Photinia Red Robin before. I’ve high hopes for it.

As you can see, things are coming on well. Thank you for looking in.

Your mystery plant might be an Epimedium, but I’m not confident. Love your Nemesias 🙂.

It's looking fabulous already,Julia..a lovely selection too..I have two Photinia Red Robins,and I love them .So easy care,and you can trim them to shape as and when you want,with no adverse effects. .The Pyracantha looks wonderful ,as does the Hydrangea..what a thoughtful gift :o).I guess having given them all a brand new start,they will reward you with a lovely display..:o) x

I love your plants especially the hydrangea.I have Red Robins too ,another favourite.I find my fuschias do best in part shade but a few are in full shade.

Wow, it’s definitely looking beautiful and so much colour too, Julia.
That hydrangea is absolutely gorgeous!!! I’ll keep my fingers crossed for you!
The pyracantha is looking so healthy too, with lots of flowers on. The jasmine is very pretty and I’m sure I can smell the scent from here!

I'm glad you've got some colour in your garden already, it makes it look cheerful.
Two tomato plants for the price of one is good ! :)

I love your lacecap hydrangea & red robin. Colorful garden Julia. I see your new garden is coming along nicely.

I love many of your colourful plants but the Clematis 'Arabella' and that stunning Hydrangea are my favourites. The latter will appreciate lots of water if this heat keeps up ... :o)

I think the plant you inherited may be euonymus alatus which has terrific autumn foliage

Thank you everyone for all your kind comments. At the moment I can't go past a Garden Centre lol!
The Hydrangea is getting a good soak each day as is Red Robin. In fact the whole garden gets a good soak at least every other day. Goodness knows what my water bill will be like, but must needs.
I started out with a 'plan' but that's pretty much gone out of the window as there are so many plants I can't resist.
