Our Garden in April - Il Nostro Giardino in Aprile

My Vaio computer is still at the repair shop for the second time as the repairs carried out at the end of April have unfortunately not resolved the issue. I have so much to share with you on my blogs and a busy time ahead with friends arriving tomorrow, I decided that I had to find a way to try and write posts via my iPad.Here I am then having purchased a special app called Blogsy which means I can at least publish some basic posts, no fancy collages. We are already well ino May but I know from statistics how popular my garden posts are, so I amsharing with you today a few of my favourite photos taken around the garden during April. For those of you that are keen gardeners and or photographers the full set can be viewed in my album on Flickr.com entitled Our Garden in April 2012. I have unsuccessfully tried to insert this as a link, sorry.

Meanwhile I hope you enjoy the photos. Have a lovely weekend and hopefully I will be back soon posting from my Vaio.

  5. Hello Lindy-Lou:
    How devastatingly dreadful it is when the computer misbehaves. We are so sorry and do hope that all will soon be well once more. In the meantime, you have treated us to some wonderful images of the garden in springtime.

  6. We all love our computers so much that it is really frustrating when they let us down. Hope it is soon back with you. The flowers in your garden are lovely, and I especially like the catkins on the walnut tree and its pretty leaves.

  10. I enjoyed your photos very much... oh your poor tulip tree. We have some of the same bushes as you do. When I clicked to leave a comment my Norton anti virus caught stopped an attack by your site. You might have a 'bug'.

  15. Sorry you're having so many computer problems. Weren't they supposed to save time and make life easier? Beautiful pictures. I remember when I visited Italy a few years ago and was amazed at the colorful back gardens and vegetable patches overflowing with produce. Here in Texas they seem to have a love for chain link fences, a few blades of grass and a sporadic tree. Regardless, my neighbor and I soldier on and plant as much color as we can and pass cuttings over the fence.

  17. Hello Lindy!

    Thank you for sharing your photos. I love cherry, apple and and almond blossom, in Italy, as it's so scented... sweet, warm, unique scent, which reminds me of my childhood, when our house was like a garden in flower, filled with freesias and branches of cherry blossom in vases. The scent would mingle with the breeze from the sea, and the aroma of the seaweed...

    Blossom is not scented here in UK. It's a cold country... it's been raining for weeks and I long for the sun!

    CIAO... a presto!

  18. How lovely. Here, the leaves haven't started growing yet, but the first stalks of my peonies are peeking through the dirt. How blessed you are to have such a lovely garden. Enjoy the sun. The weather here this week will be very hot. Maybe we can catch up to all the Italian loveliness....nd
