Spring. It’s the time of year when a gardener notices growth every day, when you want to just walk around, hourly sometimes, because with every hour of warm sunshine something has grown, or has appeared, or might just burst into bloom. And you don’t want to miss it!
We’ve had some warmish temperatures the past few weeks and even some sunshine which means the earliest of the small spring bulbs (Galanthus, species Crocus) have come and almost gone and the next batch (Chianodoxa, large Crocus) are in full bloom, with the mini daffs and Hyacinth and grape Hyacinth (Muscari) opening any moment.
Here then are six from my garden yesterday. If things look a bit wet, I was out dodging raindrops; we were expecting a deluge this Easter long weekend but the rain has mostly gone around us. You can see pictures from the around the world by visiting The Propagator‘s site. A worthwhile visit it is, too!
That’s my Six for the week. After several months of finding little inspiration in the garden, I’m happy to say things are back to normal. That is to say, there’s new things to discover, every day, in the garden. New joys, new delights, some curiosities, some disappointments, new learnings. Always.
