A Cardiff Garden In March

Welcome to a Cardiff garden in March. They say that March comes in like a lion and out like a lamb and I would normally agree but this year March started settled and warm, then last week it was freezing and today it is glorious sunshine with a weather forecast of wind and rain. I suppose it's because it's Easter and most people have a long weekend.

In the garden this month birds are building their nests, seeds are sprouting and the weeds are trying to take over. We've managed to get out and prune the Hydrangeas and Fuchsias. Lets hope the weather allows us to get out and weed the garden.

Enjoy the sunshine while it lasts and lets hope April doesn't bring too many showers.

  1. I love the blue skies this week (well earlier this week!), it really excites me for the colour that's coming soon. Magnolias are one of my faves this time of year, they always look so impressive, but I fear for them in the winds. I've seen big ones de-bloomed in a morning before - so sad!

    Thanks for joining in agin lovely, it's so nice to see little pops of colour springing up!

    1. Thanks for hosting. I love all the posts, end up reading them all :-)

  2. Gorgeous Pictures! I especially like the tadpoles. I haven't seen tadpoles for such a long time, it has brought back many memories of a time when I was much younger and still growing up.

    1. We are so lucky. We moved the pond when my grandson was born so we could fence it off, and the frogs found it within days.

  3. love the magnolia, it's a shame it flowers for only a short period of time

    1. I know. We have a very small garden so everything has to really work hard to claim a place. This is so beautiful for a few weeks that it is one of my favourites

  4. Oooh - I need to go and see how my tadpoles are doing .... and your wild celendines are in fact wild anemones ;)

    1. Lol! Thankyou. I took photo's of both but the celendine photos were blurred so I used these and my brain didn't work! I will change the caption now :-)

  5. love that second shot with the blue sky. so spring happy!
