Enjoying the start of spring

Spring blossom in my garden Lisa Cox Garden Designs

Over the two weeks of RHS Flower Show Cardiff it was really interesting to travel the same road each day and see the leaves unfold.  Not all the trees are fully out yet around our Welsh hills, but yesterday we took a walk to see if the bluebells were in flower in the local wood.

They need another week really but I took some images all the same…

The bluebells along the side of the road are a little more advanced…

It’s amazed me how many bluebell woods there are within just a short walk of our house and over the last week or so, the hedgerows and verges have started to come to life with wild flowers.

We have to walk over one of the meadows to get to the bluebell wood we visited yesterday and it’s so beautiful.  The colours of the trees in the spring sunshine is warms and vibrant and the leaves light up when the light catches them.

I’ll leave you with a few more pictures of the wild flowers in the meadow and also the wild cowslips that have appeared on the bank in our back garden.  Just gorgeous!

You may have noticed that I’ve been absent for a couple of weeks.  I haven’t been around much as we were in France for a few days (internet is always hopeless there!) and I’ve also been out and about sorting things out for my show garden with Victoria Park Mazda at Cardiff in April.  So hope you haven’t been having withdrawal symptoms…I’m sure you got by!

I went to Southampton for a meeting about RHS Cardiff yesterday and one of the main things to decide were the hard landscaping materials.  It’s so important when you’re choosing your materials that you check they work well together, and are in keeping with whatever materials are already on site otherwise you could be looking out onto a garden that makes you cringe!

Borrowing the landscape is a garden design trick of old.  Even if you’re not lucky enough to have a great view, it doesn’t mean that you can’t borrow some of the features from the neighbouring landscape. Read more
