Spring really has now arrived

This has to be my favourite season. There are so many Spring blooms to make our gardens come to life again.

This is a follow on from my last blog.

I added new dwarf bulbs in Autumn but still want to fill spaces with more dwarf daffodils but for now this is some that have opened.

The Aconites have opened a bit more since last blog.

Spring is not too far away

Here we are into February and we still have not had much of a winter as it has been rather mild.

There is snow on high back hills but nothing lower.

It is so nice to stroll in garden and can see what shall soon be full of colour. Even the Birdsong has arrived. I will share some of my photos below.

Spring Bulbs Over The Years

It is a rainy day here so I thought I would have a look through some of my old photos. Come and enjoy a touch of Spring Colour while we await the delights in my garden and some of the gardens that I have visited over the years.

First of all, a photo taken this month (Jan 2014) of a Trillium starting to show in my garden.
