Our creative adventure began in 1999, a new house and a bare plot. We were part of the NGS family for 10 years. Now we’re sitting back and relaxing!

On May 2nd last year I posted an almost identical photo to this one, which just goes to show how much the garden has been affected by the cold spring. My garden is at least three weeks behind what it normally is! #colourpop #weigela #pink #deciduousshrub #mygardentoday 💚

It’s the same here Barbara, everything is much further behind than other years. At least we are enjoying warm sunshine today. It’s drying out our very soggy lawn and borders

And here too. I looked at the video I took on the 1st June last year and it’s amazing how late everything is. But the benefit is that the spring bulbs, especially the tulips, have been fantastic. #everycloudhasasilverlining 🙄😂

Same here in Essex. I’d say 3 to 4 weeks behind for some plants. The main reason I post photos here is to compare growth year on year. There are a few plants that have really benefitted from a long wet cold spring although sadly not my tropical plants

The tulips have been great this year, Jacqueline, as they’ve lasted such a long time. 👍😘 @awomanonabike

Jane and Julie, you’re both on the east coast so I think you got the worst of the weather. 😢😢 @pelly @vec 😘😘

I don’t remember them ever lasting so long in this garden. Despite the heavy rain and hail 🙄😂

The leaves are unfurling and the flower buds are opening. I wish I knew the variety but the label is long gone 😢 #newgrowth #weigela #deciduous #pinkflowers #mygardentoday
