Crocus   –   I know it’s early days and we have another cold spell waiting at the door, but right now the sun is out and we can dream….

Bluebell Walk   Leave a comment

Bluebells   –   Yes, more of those. I feel so blessed to find this in the woods behind our garden every year at this time. The picture isn’t as perfect as most that are floating about on the internet, but hey, ferns and bracken, stinging nettles, brambles and grasses all belong here, too, or else it would be just that, a picture. It is real and I get to walk here whenever I want, the only problem being that most of the recent days have been a bit too wet and miserable to enjoy the views. Here’s hoping it will clear up soon.

Spring Carpet   Leave a comment

Bluebells and Welsh Poppies   –   It’s that time of year again where bluebells in varying shades and welsh poppies produce a carpet of flowers.
That’s enough of good cheer for this Friday, I am about to put my grumpy face on again while I continue the hunt for the rabbit which has now proceeded to decimate my roses. Rabbit stew, anyone?

Daffodils   –   Yes, more of those, I’m afraid! But don’t worry, they have nearly all gone over now 😉 Have a relaxing few days this Easter time!

Easter Bell   Leave a comment

Daffodil   –   Yes, the ever popular at this time of year, I’m afraid. Back home we call them Easter Bells because of their shape and the fact they flower around Easter time, though this year a lot of them are going over in my garden already and Easter isn’t for another week   :-/

Another Iris   Leave a comment

Iris   –   The thing that struck me about this one is its much paler shade of blue than all the others. Nothing wrong with a bit of variety in these fascinating flowers …
