Finally, the crocuses are properly blooming.
While out snapping the crocuses I venture deeper into the garden with my camera. It'll be nice, I hope, to look back on these photos later in the year as from this point in the year the garden just gets better and better.
Garden view, complete with various plastic bags from over the wall which I have still to tidy up.
Blown over strawberry tree, I hope it will be OK once staked.
A promising magnolia bud.
Lupins. Always lovely, even in the rain.
I planted some tulip bulbs last Autumn. I'm not sure what type was in the centre of the middle pot but something has found them to be tasty, grr!
The path, with another tree needing staked leaning in to the top right of the photo.
I caught the last of the Sarah Raven "Bees, Butterflies and Blooms" programmes on the telly last week. I have visions now of me wafting through a garden bursting with wonderful plants listening to the bees buzzing and watching the butterflies. We can dream. I'll start by adding a packet of cosmos seeds to my shopping list for when I'm next in a suitable shop.
I tried taking some photos of the newly tidied house before it all got messed up again. They weren't terribly good so I squashed them into a little mosaic.
