A fanfare of Crocuses usher in Spring.
Now that we have proof that Spring is actually coming, I've been tidying up the garden, planning ahead, and uncovering the colourful bulbs.
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.
The Crocus 'Giant Ruby' bulbs have grown and are about to flower, and some of the veg are already growing.
Snow and severely low temperatures have come as a shock to some plants, whilst others carry on regardless.
