Garden Bloggers´ Bloom Day April 2017

                                                                 Dear readers,
Having written a short post yesterday, I didn´t intend to blog today. However, while looking at other people´s blogs (Christina´s organicgardendreams) I came upon Garden Bloggers´ Bloom Day hosted by Carol from May Dreams Gardens. Liking the idea a lot, I decided to participate. I´d like to share some pictures of my new garden, which as some of you might already know, I took over from my parents.  Hope you enjoy!

I created these two borders in the middle of the garden last September. Before, it was all lawn there. At the end of the borders I positioned a bank, which at the same time is a rose arch. When I started the borders last year, my parents told me that the borders looked like graves. However, I personally really like the borders and I am sure that as soon as the plants have established and grown to a certain hight, the borders will look great. I already imagine myself walking through the two borders and also enjoying the plants while sitting on the bank. I planted many old roses in the borders and also some peonies, alliums, lavender and other plants and can´t wait for them to bloom. I am really excited about how the borders will look some years from now.


Usually I am not very fond of yellow plants, but I think this lime yellow blooms of Euphorbia characias look wonderful in combination with purple and dark red tulips.

  1. Hi Lisa, how wonderful that you have decided to participate in the Garden Bloggers' Bloom Day meme as well!
    I think the two new borders that you have created look fantastic. And all the tulips planted in them are so beautiful. Today I found another favorite: Tulipa 'Purple Crystal', but I also love 'Angelique' and the Fritillaria persica Adiyaman is a really magical plant.
    I see now that you have your own Auricula theater :-)! What a wonderful way to present these little gems of plants.
    Happy Easter!

    1. Hi Christina,
      thanks to your link I found Garden Bloggers´Bloom Day! I would now like to participate more often. I am glad you like the borders. Tulipa Purple Crystal is also one of my favourites. The interesting thing about tulipa Angelique is that it changes its colour. As you can see, when I took the pictures of tulipa Anquelique, the tulip just started opening and it was only a bit pink in the middle. It will now get pinker from day to day. Fritillaria persica I saw at a plant market I visited last week and I had to buy it. I love its silvery green foliage and also the purple blooms with its silver shimmer. The lovely thing about auriculas is that they don´t need much space, and unlike with roses, I don´t have to ponder where there is still space in my garden.
      Happy Easter!
      Lisa

  2. I adore your Primula, especially since i don't grow that myself. Your borders look great now, and I'm sure they'll look even better in the years to come. Happy Easter and GBBD!
