Spring nearly here!

Posted on


Isn't it lovely to feel the sun on your back? I had 2 full hours in the garden yesterday, clearing away debris and tidying up. Did wonder if I had been a bit premature when I woke up to a frost on the car this morning though!

Lots of fat buds on all the clematis; I have about 12 or more, and will try to get CW to photograph all of them to make into cards. The crocuses are really getting into their stride; have you noticed it is always the yellow ones that open first? Now they are being interspersed with purple and lilac ones, to make a vivid contrast with that wonderful yellow. My favourite pulsatillas are pushing up through the ground, their little snub noses jostling for daylight. I love their stamens that look like nylon filaments, and that fabulous unreal blue colour. Last year I planted a ruby red one, so will be interested to see how that does this year. Sadly no sign of meconopsis; I expect it has succumbed to winter wet, but I saved some seed last year so see if that takes.

Happy gardening!
