  2. Hi Frank,
    I think what you should do next is to take some of your flowers and make a nice sending to Iceland. You are really well advanced compare to us... We only have the first crocus and there are just coming out!!!! Have a nice week end...

  4. Thanks Shelly, it's a great time of year with fresh colours appearing each week.

    Chris, They are all yours (& for Val) of course. You will be enjoying yours very soon I hope.

    Keely, I used "Picasa 3". There are various options for collage layout & simple (I can do it!)

  6. I've always planted flowers for a riot of color. No color themes for me. Yours are so pretty.

  7. Lynne, I originally planned what went where but now the plants decide. The pinks, more blues & reds come later.

  9. Lovely spring color. Every day I notice new colors opening up all around, it's so great. Are all those flowers on your property? I don't have so many spring bloomers in our yard/woods... more will come on in summer. Nice collage - Picasa does make it easy, doesn't it?!

  11. Lovely collage, also like the pink in the top photo. We thought spring was here, but it is cold outside, and suppose to get colder.

  15. Hi Frank,
    Thanks for the lovely flower montage. We popped into Wisley Friday after picking Thomas up from school for Easter. As we left at 3.45pm Thomas pointed out a Red Kite passing over the shop. Have they been reported at Wisley much this year? Graham says it is the optimum time for sightins at Holmethorpe.

  17. Roy, Heather, Kim, Leedra, Ginnymo, Keith, Tricia, Jerry & Jayne - Thank you for your kind comments on the flower collage.

    Heather, yes everything is growing in the back garden which is only 18 feet wide by 66 feet long.

    Jerry. Nice to hear from you & Thomas. I think Thomas might claim the 1st Red Kite sighting for this year & I'll update the records on Monday. Next time you are visiting Wisley perhaps you can find time to call into The Plant Centre & ask for me - would be good to catch up with Thomas again. Have a great Easter break. Cheers Frank

  18. Wow Frank, all those colors in your very own garden! I'm so jealous. My daffodils are just starting to sprout--only about 1 inch of green showing above ground and that will be all covered with snow by tomorrow morning!

  19. Hi Frank,
    Lovely show of Spring colour there, so cheerful.

  20. Hi Ruthie. Just remember you have all these delights to come after the snow.

    Jan. Thanks

  21. Beautiful flowers, I guess you got spring, us just looking outside at 7 or more inches of snow....hopefully will melt soon, because I am not the only one that had it enough, the American Robins trying to hide under cars, I guess because of warmth...Anna :)
