Beautiful morning

Spring! I love this season! I love to wake up in the morning when birds are singing and twitting! Today we had a very beautiful morning. It was very sunny... and quite cold. I noticed just +1 C (33,8 F) at 06.30. But the temperature raised quickly and at 10.00 it was +14 C (57,2 F). Not that bad as for March here in central Poland. 

Birds and squirells enjoy spring do much! Plants feel very comfortable in such kind of circumstances. I love my garden and it makes me more patient, stronger and wiser. Let's have a look at my evergreen garden in Polad at early morning spring sunshine!

Lawn is quite green but most of huge trees do not still have fresh leaves. Oaks will get greener a litle bit later than other tres like maples or birches.

Some of evergreen broadleaf shrubs have just started to bloom. Look at this pieris japonica Debutante. Isn't it beautiful?

Vinca minor Variegata started to bloom few days ago!

I cleaned my pond. I also used special liquid which makes the water more transparent and which also helps to combat algaes (or fight with algaes - I do not know which word is proper for that).

I am still waiting for the first barbecue in the garden this year!

I think that I wil have to cut the grass very soon. It started to grow quote fast after some rainfoall that appeared two days ago. 

Please visit my blog systematicly. I will present here condition of my garden and different plant which grow here.

Plants started to grow and bloom

Last Friday and Saturday were very nice, warm and sunny. It was +24 C on Friday and +22 C on Saturday. Unfortunately Sunday was not that nice. It was cloudy with 14 C. Last night it started to rain. But hunid weather is very good for all plants, trees, flowers, shrubs which have just started to grow and to bloom.

I love spring, even whent it's raining and it's a little bit cold. I love to observe new leaves that appear on all trees and shrubs. I love all spring flowers. They are very colourfull and pretty. Let's look at my evergreen garden. I wil show you how the nature starts its new life after winter.

Mahonia aquifolium has just started to bloom.

Euonymus fortunei has got new fresh leaves.

Pansies are bloming! I planted them 18 days ago.

Prunus laurocerasus Herbergii will strat to bloom very soon. It's very beautiful evergreen broadleaf shrub which can withstand quite low temperature.

Clematis has a lot of nice frsh and light green leaves. Spring is here!

Fritillaria imperialis which we call Ceaser's crownis quite big as for the second half of March. We are waiting for beautiful and big red flowers.

Tulips will also start to bloom very soon.

Hyaciths are very close...

Some of them has just started to bloom!

Spring came quite early this year to Poland. It was snowing and freezing at the same time last year. I do prefer the weather that we have this year. 

I will present here on my blog how my garden changes during spring time!

Fabruary did not bring a real winter. It was thaw here and snow that had come in January disapeared during first 10 days of February. Until now March has been really nice with some sun and quite high temeprature. Today it's been the warmest day this year. Temperature rised to +15 C (in shadow) and to +28 C in sunny places! That was really nice. Sunday was also the first day this year whe I ran my bike! Great. I was dreaming about it all throuhg the winter time.

When I came back home I took my camera and I went to the garden to look for some signs of spring. I also checked a condition of evergreen broadleaf shrubs.

I can say that all of plants withstood winter without any damages caused by the snow or frost. 

Hedera aarborescens looks quite good.

Aucuba japonica is going to grow new leaves.

Prunus laurocerasus Herbergii is in a very good condition.

The whole garden looks really nice.

Few days ago I planted some pansies. Some of them grow in flowerpots which I put on the stairs. 

I do hope that winter is not going to come back. Within few days I will inform you if the weather is still good and I will also show you condition of my plants.
