As our snowdrops fade here are plenty of Spring flowering plants to take up the challenge of keeping the garden full of interest.
Viburnum bodnantense to be fair has been flowering all winter and as a bonus has a delicious scent.
Hellebores are certainly enjoying their best season for several years. The orange/red stems of dogwood can still be seen in the background.
The early narcissus Tete a Tete makes an appearance almost overnight.
The little Cardamine quinquefolia also comes from nowhere and after a welcome period of flower disappears until next year.
Sally has planted 20 hellebores amongst the snowdrops and they seem to make content bedfellows!
Even the primroses are getting in on the act, they self seed here like mad but we dig them up and donate to a friend who has a 4 acre wood to fill!!
More hellebores in full flight!
It really must be spring because today the main lawn had its first cut of the year and shows off some splendid stripes!
