Spring definitely seems to be in the air round here, in stark contrast with last year!
The hellebores are still covered in flowers!
There are two containers like this, planted up with the same violas and daffodils as the hanging baskets
The rhubarb is beginning to really grow like mad!
Signs of spring appearing – the first sign of leaves on the standard apple tree
Cornus (dogwood) – these I only planted last year so I’m going to give them another year to get established before I hard prune them.
The hanging baskets have turned out quite well. I’d ordered viola plug plants back in the autumn and when they turned up they were REALLy teeny tiny, so teeny tiny that I wasn’t sure they’d have time to come to anything before the cold weather, but they’ve actually managed to grow a bit and flower
These are some of the daffodils I planted in the autumn. The squirrels seemed to dig up quite a few of the bulbs, so I’m relieved to see that there are still some around to flower!
How is your garden looking now spring is on the way?
