Yet another garden update! Yesterday was warm and sunny and the crocuses were stunning! Some of the Dutch crocuses opened as well as the Species. Things happen so fast here once Spring really gets going!
Can you spot the bee in this picture?
Striped Squill and Glory-of-the-snow...
This time of year the garden is always full of surprises. There are little clumps of crocuses, patches of Glory-of-the-snow, and of course all the perennials popping up. It is altogether lovely, but unfortunately the camera never does it justice. I often pause while working in the garden and rush off to get the camera, only to be sadly disappointed by the results!
Remember the great snow wall around the greenhouse? Here's all that is left of it (with a before picture to compare)!
I am having quite a time keeping up with the growth of these Castor Beans! Seems like I just moved them into larger pots a few days ago, and they are already outgrowing them! Aren't they beautiful, though?
I think that's all for now...I do hope to resume the flower history posts soon. I just haven't had the time to sit down and write much. There is so much work to be done in the gardens (and what delightful work it is!) and after such a long winter I just want to be outside. Even today's cold soaking rain couldn't keep me in! ;)
I am a passionate gardener and seed-saver, who also enjoys playing the violin and accordion, running, spending time with my 4 golden retrievers, keeping chickens, photography, and reading.
