There are so many little things I want to show you in the garden- here are a few for now.
Celia asked for pictures but I hope anyone else dropping by will have a quick look!
Snakeshead Fritillary – my favourite native spring bulb! (fritillaria meleagris) Extraordinary and unique as far as I know
Apple blossom any day now – three different sorts on the family tree
Primroses from my neighbour’s garden. We trade plants and bread!
The Buddha sitting next to the brunnera ‘jack frost’ contemplating irises in leaf
AND down in the woods….
Swathes of wild garlic (allium ursinum) for Celia! No bulbs but you can pick the leaves and the white flower heads when they appear in a couple of weeks time.
Celandine and Wood Anenomes (don’t ask me which sort!) are everywhere right now too!
Oh to be in England now that Spring is there! Or in an Australian garden too, where there will be chocolate cake I am sure :)
I’ve never seen anything like that snakeshead, Zeb! Your garden photos are truly lovely – everything looks like it’s about to burst into flower, and the Buddha looks very peaceful meditating mindfully amongst the foliage.
I love your woodland shots (as you know), very River Cottage come Wind in the Willows. Thanks for taking photos for me! :)
Yes, it’s very odd isn’t it? But seems to like it in that corner, and is multiplying quite well, unlike the countless snowdrops I have planted!
What lovely photographs. It’s oh so exciting outside at this time of year. We have the primroses in our garden but jack frost has only just started to make an appearance so you must be in a nice sheltered spot.
It’s all happening finally outside isn’t it Choclette? Bit confused though, I have snowdrops and tulips at the same time!
