Grandma's favourite red tulips




Red tulips from my grandma's old garden. 
She used to sit on a bench and count them. 
She loved them 💚

Frostbitten magnolia




This is my Alba Superba which was planted last year. For the first time (in my garden) it had 4 flowers. I couldn't wait to see them!
Unfortunately, all the flowers turned brown because the temperature was below 0 C. 




Last weekend I bought Susan, it's a late variety so it should be less susceptible to frostbites. I hope so :)



And here is Betty in my mom's garden.

Nasty weather





We're experiencing some nasty weather lately. The temperature fluctuates around 5 degrees by day and below 0 at night. 

What's even worse the bad weather is set to continue until May :(



I'm waiting for warmer days and bees to pollinate our fruit trees and bushes :)


Ulubiena Lwowa (pink currant)

Chaenomeles

lonicera kamtschatica


Apple

Sweet cherry

Wild pear
Gooseberry
Blackthorn

I wandered lonely as a cloud



I'm wondering what would William Wordsworth say if he saw these double Replete daffodils? 
Would he love them as much as the belt of yellow daffodils he saw near the lake?

I'm curious.

I love them, I absolutely love them!
