Colours in the spring garden

The plants are setting out with determination into the new year and I hope that they won’t be caught by a late frost. Daffodils, primroses, and hellebores are open everywhere, and in the garden I have Iris Lazica.

The turning sun

It is 31 May, and in three weeks’ time the sun turns round and heads south, but today has dawned grey, chilly, and windy again. In the garden the plants are doing surprisingly well, although some are clearly struggling to flourish.

The geraniums are winners and about to burst into abundant flower!
