April in the Garden

Although the month has had a few cool days (22 degrees), the weather has warmed up again to 30 degree celcius. The warm weather and a bit of rain has caused everything to have a growth spurt again.
The hydrangeas have new flowers.



The Robinia has begun to drop its leaves, and the deck is constantly in need of a sweep because of a huge deciduous tree that shades it in Summer.

The hibiscus always makes me think of Summer and tropical places.

You have the most amazing garden. I always think of your gardening tip - just spend 10 minutes every day. Well I guess if I did that I'd have a magnificent garden too!!!

You've got me hooked onto blogging mania - help I can't stop!

Happy Good Friday - thank You Jesus

Thanks for commenting on my blog. Glad you enjoyed visiting. It's good that it brought back some fond memories to you of life in East Africa.

And you do have a lovely garden!
