garden starts to wake up after a long winter.  Having a garden that has continual flowers requires quite a bit of planning and a good deal of trial and error.  Every year brings new ideas and of course lots of new plants, I am a danger in any garden centre, over the past few years I have tried to control the urge to buy endless amounts of plants and I now only buy plants knowing where exactly they are going to go in the garden.  There was an exception to that rule this year, when I was in the garden centre in Ballinamore I bought two Peonie trees and actually convinced another shopper to buy one too the smell of the flowers was so incredible;  I spent the day getting everyone to have a smell.  But back to the garden, we had an extra special helper in the garden who scared the wits out of us on a number of occasions launching herself at us out of bushes, living up to her name Ninja!!!
