My garden in April

Noen april-bilder fra hagen min.
Mars var varmere enn normalt mens april har vært kald, men det kjølige været til tross er det er mye som er på gang nå.


Some photos of my garden in April.
March was warmer than usual, while April has been chilly so far. However despite the chilly weather many plants are growing nicely in the garden now.


Løytnantshjertene har kommet godt opp, og har allerede bittesmå knopper.
Her skulle det også vært blomstrende perleblomster, men vi har hatt rådyr innom som har spist bort mange av knoppene og blomstene.

The bleeding hearts have grown well, and there are already tiny buds on them.
In this flower bed it there should be lots of muscaris in bloom, but there have been roes visiting the garden eating several muscari buds and flowers.




Fiolene blomstrer vakkert nå. Dette er den viltvoksende, duftende sorten, som jeg har plantet i hagen.
Jeg hadde planer om å plukke inn fioler til tørking, men været har hindret meg hittil. Jeg får passe på så snart sjansen byr seg.


The violets are blooming beautifully. This is the wildgrowing, scented variety which I have planted in the garden.
I was planning to dry violet flowers, but the weather has stoped me so far. Hopefully there will soon be a nice, dry and warm day for picking flowers for drying.




Trær og busker er fulle av bladknopper, men det er bare beinveden som har fullt utsprungne blader så langt. Beinveden er den busken som først får blader om våren, og den som først mister bladene om høsten.


The trees and bushes have not yet fully opened their leaves, except for the Chinese spindle tree. The spindle tree is the first one to open its leaves in spring and the first one to drop its leaves in autumn.







Blomstene til pestrot. Når blomstene er ferdig kommer de store bladene opp.

The flowers of petasites japonicus. When they finish blooming the large leaves appear.



Og her er huset mitt :)

And here is my house :)






Det er fortsatt mye vårrydding som gjenstår i hagen. April har vært så kald at det ikke har fristet særlig å holde på ute.
Det er flere bed som må lukes og ryddes, og så har jeg en diger haug med kvist som skal kuttes opp.

Men komposten har jeg fått tømt, og rammene i kjøkkenhagen har fått påfyll med fin kompostjord. 


There is still a lot tidying to do around the garden. April has been so chilly that it has not been tempting to do much outside.
There are several more beds that need to be cleansed, and there is stocked up a large pile of twigs to be run through the shredder.

 I have emptied both compost bins, and added the fresh compost to the vegetable beds in the kitchen garden.

Your garden is beautiful Hilde and I see you have got lots of my favourite blue flowers!

What a nice house ! I love it.
So lovely flowers!
What are you going to make with the dried violets ? I have a lot of them also in my garden. When I was a child, we use to make candy with them.
It is very chilly here too.

Mye spennende å se fra hagen din Hilde!
Nydelige bilder med mange blå blomster.
Ser at de blå er i overflod hos meg denne våren.

Hilde! I am so pleased that I can visit your garden again! This is a real pleasure! You know, spring is almost over here and in Norway it has just started! Have a nice evening! :-)

What are you doing with the dry violets? Just for decoration? Or do you have something else in mind with them? With you one can never know...
:-)

Hilde said...

Si nice to see you all, thanks for your comments :)

I was planning to dry violets to make violet infused oil. The oil can be used in a salve or just to be rubbed on the skin.
Did not get to pick any today either, as there has been yet another chilly and rainy day...
