- Plum blossom in my back garden. This is a Victoria Plum and is always one of the earliest trees / shrubs to flower in the spring and looks magical against all the bare twigs at the time. It also worries me in case there's a frost which kills the flowers, it makes the difference between 6 plums or 60lbs of plums - looking good this year. Plums to buy- More pictures - Spring

Summer - Morning Glory - Heavenly Blue.
One of my favourite flowers and a must-have annual every year. Sow the seed in March and by late May to June, they're ready to go outside. They do great in large containers, make sure you give them plenty of space and you'll have a endless succession of perfect flowers every day as long as you dead-head them in the evening.

Autumn - Boston Ivy - Parthenocissus tricuspidata-2
This plant will thrive in sun or shade and is very accommodating in this respect being useful to cover something unsightly, though being deciduous, only for part of the year! The leaves are redder and stay on the plants in this colouring for longer the more sun they get.

Winter - A world of white
An ethereal world made so by the application of water vapour in the air and a few degrees change in temperature, isn't it great that the world can change so fundamentally so easily?

Gardening takes a plot of land, a hoe and willing muscles. Scratching the soil, harvesting garden fruits, are peaceful results. With a garden, there is hope.
Grace Firth

The greatest gift of the garden is the restoration of the five senses.
Hanna Rion

Gardening is a way of showing that you believe in tomorrow.
Author Unknown

Garden: One of a vast number of free outdoor restaurants operated by charity-minded amateurs in an effort to provide healthful, balanced meals for insects, birds and animals.
Henry Beard and Roy McKie, Gardener's Dictionary

Gardening is ultimately a folly whose goal is to provide delight.
Deborah Needleman

Season of mists and mellow fruitfulness, Close bosom-friend of the maturing sun; Conspiring with him how to load and bless with fruit the vines that round the thatch-eaves run.
From John Keats

Gardening is a labour full of tranquility and satisfaction; natural and instructive, and as such contributes to the most serious contemplation, experience, health and longevity.
John Evelyn, 1666

Just living is not enough ...
One must have sunshine, freedom, and a little flower.
Hans Christian Anderson

Gardening is the art that uses flowers and plants as paint, and the soil and sky as canvas.

Elizabeth Murray

The most noteworthy thing about gardeners is that they are always optimistic, always enterprising, and never satisfied.  They always look forward to doing something better than they have ever done before.
Vita Sackville-West, 1892 - 1962

Gardening is medicine that does not need a prescription ... And with no limit on dosage.

Author unknown

A garden really lives only insofar as it is an expression of faith, the embodiment of a hope and a song of praise.

Russell Page, The Education of a Gardener, 1962

I don't think we'll ever know all there is to know about gardening, and I'm just as glad there will always be some magic about it!

Barbara Damrosch

I also know that we should cultivate our gardens.
Voltaire, Candide

Gardening is an exercise in optimism. Sometimes, it is a triumph of hope over experience.
A garden is a delight to the eye and a solace for the soul.

Half the interest of a garden is the constant exercise of the imagination.
Alice Morse Earle, 1897
