Today was a real garden day, the first real warm sunshine, and towards the middle of the day it was just lovely to be outside. Work had to be done, twigs had to be shredded, and other winter things cleared away. My grandson, partner and I even sat on the garden seat drinking a cup of tea while taking a rest from the work. I could not resist going around observing and taking photos of what is happening at this time, and there is lots to be seen, shoots of the soft fruit coming up, small flowers opening, and young salad leaves coming up, all exciting and lovely.
The Borage is already nearly in full bloom, the bees will be happy when they come out!
Lungwort Pulmonaria Officinalis is a lovely plant, I treasure the one I have in the garden and hope to grow more.
Last year’s English Marigolds are coming into bloom again brightening up the garden so much.
Fumitory on the wall, a little herb that is supposed to be a good little liver plant, must double check that though.
Daisies are to be found flowering in heaps right now, as are Dandelions, a great sign of spring.
Salad leaves sowed outside last autumn, and doing well. And Wild Garlic a whole bed full of it!
These Grape Hyacinths are starting to flower in a window box, love these little things, they add a touch of colour and they have a nice subtle scent.
