Springtime in the garden

The first month of spring will finish in a week. I love this season! Every tree and shrub is goingto become green. We can observe hundreds of shades of green. Tulip tree has got small leaves. They will grow through coming weeks.

Aucuba japonica will bloom very soon. It has smal white flowers. They are not very nice, but what is important form me this shrub very rarely blooms in our climate.

Euonymus fortunei Canadale Gold started to grow quite fast. It's a kind of climber and when the plant finds a wall or tree it will start to climb.

Another genus of Euonymus fortunei also looks nice. On the next picture you can find (from the left) different plants: 2 Sunspot, 2 Emerald'n Gold, 1 Sunspot and 1 Emerald Gaiety. I hope that in some time they create a nice evergreen coverage around the birch stem.

Viburnum rhytidophyllum also started to grow. This evergreen shrub in central Poland can grow up to 2-3 metres high.

It's really lovely all around. Easter is coming soon and as weather forecast say it wll be sunny and quite warm. We will chceck it in few days.

Spring - festival of colours

Spring is one of the most beautiful seaons for me. It brings longer days, more sunshine, higher temperatures and lots of colours. All shrubs and trees becoms to be green and now we can see hundreds of different shades of green. 

This is really fantastic. I'd like to show you few pictures of the most significant signs of spring here in the central part of Poland.

Magnolia stellata always starts to bloom quite early.

Aesculus will start to bloom very soon.

 Lots of fruit trees look very beautiful.

Forsythia is finishing its blooming time. Rememeber to cut it after this period. Do not do this in autumn because it will not bloom next year.

Vinca minor is also blooming now. It's one of the spring signs here.

It's really beautiful time. I love spring and its colours. Do you?
