The Delargo Gardens - April

Here we are me lovelies at the end of April. We have had a little bit of every thing weather wise this month from gale force winds, hail  and baking sunshine. Some chilly nights but no frosts thank heavens.

The daffs have given way to the wallflowers

Our only tulips this year 'Gavotta' has looked rather splendid all this month

and the gorgeous Ipheion 'Jessie' too

The garden itself is slowly coming together with a lot of effort ( mainly from Jon)

The difference between the beginning of the month and now is amazing

Ipomoea tricolor 'Kniola's Black' . Ipomoea multifida and Ipomoea(Mina) lobata

Monty Don said to cut off all the old fronds of deciduous ferns so we did and it is now looking fresh and fab.

 Thank you Jon

His rose  'Veilchenblau' ( a cutting taken 3 years ago ) is looking good and has loads of flower buds full of promise

as are our begonias both old and new

 there are a few newbies this month along with the seedling and old favourites waking up from there Winter sleep. 

By the way me darlins I have now finished repairing the all the garden posts all the way back to 2013
It was actually quite interesting and is a useful archive of what was what through the all three incarnations of the 'Delargo Towers garden'
