We’ve just had a mild week here in the East of England, and so the garden has woken up to throw lush green leaves skywards. It’s been the perfect time to get out there.
The snow reminds the Spring flowering bulbs that Winter hasn’t quite finished with us yet.
It’s a pre-Christmas rush to get the last of my rescued Tulip, Daffodil, Snowdrop, Hyacinth, and Crocus bulbs into the ground in 2017.
The tulips give a dash of colour to a shady and grey corner of the garden.
The garden springs to life indoors and out.
A fanfare of Crocuses usher in Spring.
A trip to the garden centre sees me return home with rather a lot of bulbs…
Last year’s Tulip bulbs are now coming into flower, and the seedlings are thriving in the propagator.
Making the most of a sunny February day, I have ventured into the garden to check on the new bulbs and see which plants survived the -11C weather.
Caterpillars begin their assault on the Nasturtiums, whilst I look towards bulbs for colour in Spring 2013.
