I have these lovely miniature daffodills by the front door, for St David's day Jetfire :-
Hapus dydd dewi
Diolch yn fawr!
Some Crocuses ... Another Hellebore ...
A few hellebores and finally, not a hellebore Corydalis cheilanthifolia
Gorgeous Helebores @NigelJ , love the doubles in photo 2. What is so weird is there is you living in Devon and me in Scotland and my Helebores are also completely out and have been for about 10 days. We should be a good while behind you but not this year, it really has been a pretty mild winter for us in comparison to some humdingers
As the weather was very dull yesterday I had a quick stroll round the garden. It doesn't really make for good photos but I took some anyway. Some Hellebores In a pot by the front door In one of our woody areas (snowdrops in the background) Some more later - I think Witchhazel - lovely scent by the front path White heather opposite the witchhazel This is our clematis Armandii that we planted in our new bed. Just its second season and the first flowers are about to come out. There are loads of them We have a lot of croci coming out but these are the brightest so far Pulmonaria, one of my favourite Spring flowers that blooms for months. Haven't tidied that bed yet
Sorry about the slightly out of focus shots but the camera couldn't cope with the poor light Some more of our Hellebore beds All these are going to be dug up and either potted up for sale or moved elsewhere (the space is needed for something else) Our doubles are usually later but these are already going well Rhubarb is coming along Trunk of the Hazel contorta Some of the Arum italicum potted up for sale
It's looking good Shiney!
Fabulous trunk! I can see a dinosaur chewing something and looking to its left where there is a cyclops with their left leg bent back, a very high belly button (!) and arms behind their back.
Finally took the camera into the garden ... ~ the patio pots ~ flowering currant ~ "Mini Woodland" pot ~ wallflower just showing a hint of what's to come (seed sown direct last year, but this was moved into its final position last Autumn) ~ A different view of the "Mini Woodland" pot ~ New life in my "not quite a stumpery" corner ~ Clematis budding up ~ Rosemary getting set to bloom ~ a beautiful crocus ~ can't remember the name of this one, but it has been flowering for a couple of months! (I've remembered: skimmia! )
