2nd week of March

Het wordt hoog tijd om de rozen te gaan snoeien en bemesten. Altijd een moeilijke tijd voor mij en vooral nu. Na een zeer milde winter zit er al zoveel groen aan de rozen dat ik het moeilijk vindt om de schaar er in te zetten. De eerste die ik toch gesnoeid heb is A Shropshire Lad. Verder is het geen weer om aan de slag te gaan in de tuin, moet ik misschien een duikpak gaan kopen lol.

The time of rosepruning has come. Still a very difficult thing for me. After a very mild
winter the roses have a lot of new green already so difficult to cut them down. The first one
I´ve pruned is A Shropshire Lad. The weather is to bad to go outside. Maybe I should buy a diving suite to stay dry and warm lol.

The flowers of the treepeonie are fantastic but also the start of it is amazing. Like little
hands protecting the flowerbud

I needed the bright colors of this bouquet of Gerbera´s

Mininarcissus Tete a Tet in Bloom

Still a lot of to learn having a new camera. My lovely dog as a model

Last saturday finaly my dream came trough. Visiting the beautiful garden De Stekkentuin where 350 kinds of Helleborusses are blooming. Camera in the camerabag and off we went. But helas the
weather was to bad to make any photograph. Extreme rainfall and heavy storm where not the
ideal kind of weather to visit a garden. But many beautiful species where sold and ofcourse I
i could not resist to buy some new ones. So the trip was not for nothing. The new plants are still on the windowsill because of the weather. Day after day strong rainfall and very strong winds overhere since saturday. But better weather is forecasted after the weekend. The webside of the garden
I´ve visited De Stekkentuin

New Helleborusses

I hope we soon can start to complain how warm it is!! lol
Have a wonderful day

  1. Hello dear Marijke
    I really like your description of the treepeonies that is just the way they look.
    It is sad with the weather but perhaps we will not need water this summer, we can hope so.
    Your new helleborus are very beautyfull, you must really enjoy them, but first ind the house.
    Have a nice day
    Rosehugs Lisbeth

    1. Good morning dear Lisbeth,
      I agree maybe we don't need extra water in the garden because of the amound of rain that's coming down now. The Helleborus does'nt like it to be inside the house. Maybe the weather is better today and I can bring them outside.
      Have a wonderful weekend ahead.
      Rosehugs Marijke

  2. All of these beautiful blooms remind me that spring really is on its way. It is supposed to get up to nine degrees here today with rain so perhaps very soon we will see green shoots emerging from the ground.

    1. Helle David,
      No spring weather overhere. It looks more like it is autumn. But spring is around the corner. Have a wonderful weekend ahead.

  3. Hello dear Marijke,

    Beautiful signs of spring. Your Camellia looks great. The helleborus is so pretty. I love them, but they don't thrive here.
    Have a wonderful day!
    Rosehugs, Marit

    1. Good morning dear Marit,
      No spring in your garden yet but it will come soon too!! in your garden. Can't wait to see your beautiful springgarden.
      Have a wonderful weekend ahead.
      Rosehugs Marijke

  4. De rozen heb ik ook al gesnoeid en je hebt gelijk, het is best akelig om zoveel blad af te knippen. Maar gelukkig groeit het weer aan. Groetjes Hetty

    1. Goedemorgen Hetty,
      Die snoei is voor mij altijd een probleem en zeker nu omdat ze al zo ver zijn uitgelopen.
      Het is jammer dat we vooraf niet kunnen voorzien hoe de winter gaat verlopen want om de snoei laat in de herfst uit te voeren zou voor mij beter zijn. Misschien ga ik het dit jaar eens proberen (lol).
      Heerlijk weekend gewenst.

  5. Hello Marijke, lovely times ahead of us now. It is so good so see the sun shine more.
    It is a lovely time when the garden awakes again.
    Your camelia is beautiful, have a lovely day.

    Rosehugs, Ida

  6. I do hope spring will come and the warm days start, Marijke. I see your purchase was lucky, very nice hellebore. I especially love the white one! tree peonies are interesting, they really look like the hands.
    I liked your dog, congrats with your new camera!

  7. Wonderful flowers, I especially loved the camellias, they are magnificent.
    Your dog is so beautiful.
    Have a nice week
