Singing Gardener

What lovely pictures! I'm envious now - all I have are snowdrops and the primroses are just beginning. We're on a hill so we're always a bit later than other places around here.

Despite howling gales and driving rain 2nd Daffodil out today!

Not sure if these are strictly spring flowers, have just found a pale pink pelargonium and pale yellow antirrhinum in flower, not sure how to add the picture though


Start from the little green tree in the tool bar Suburbshrub.

The crocus in the lawn have just popped up thought they were fungi for a minute as I put them in this autumn and didn't think they'd survive the wet.  Got hellebores and primulas out and dafs, bluebells and scillas growing put no flowers yet.


MrsG, makes ??ou feel good doesn't it to see those flowers?  

Despite all the rain my soil is reasonably workable and it was so tempting to do more out there today.  Such a strong feeling of spring.  


 Spotted this first Iris Not sure of the variety though.

Yes Verdun, I'm very relieved that things have survived despite the excessive wet weather.  Feels a little bit like you've been holding your breath until those green shoots emerge.  I just hope my young fruit trees have survived with wet roots, if so, considering digging them up and planting on mounds in case this happens regularly. Got the in laws coming tomorrow so weather permitting going to try and get the rest of my bare root hedge in.

 Thanks Nutcutlet, not only gardening advice  but IT too

Ok, can I call it help with using the right button then ? 


First tiny flower on Aubretia seen this morning.


Sounds more like it Ss.

Aubrieta KEF That's spring


Aubrieta, well I did say it was a little flower.



Just been out with the dog and saw a single celandine down by the river



Shakespeare says that the celandine is the first sign of spring.  If you go to the 2014 thread, page 6 you will see what is flowering on my garden today.  You would be forgiven for thinking we have had no winter to speak of in bristol this year.  The spring flowers have all relished the wet especially the snowdrops.


I don't really want Daisy's but at least a bit of colour.

 First Crocus.

Flower buds coming on climbing roses. First peach blossom and 6 daffodils now!


Snowdrops, crocus, primroses, helliboris (white and rosy mauve), yellow jasmine, miniature iris, iberis(?) bergena and yes - lovely blue periwinkle - the roots of which I have been ripping up all week - I love the little flowers but it is a triffid in my garden.  The little pink buds are just about to burst on my prunus. My daffodils are not nearly ready to be sociable yet.  Even without the flowers, there is a lot of colour from berries and rose hips and the sundance choisyas.  I am just so happy to be out in the garden again.  I'm on holiday this week and have been out everyday for a good few hours.  I am bent double but oh what blissful agony.

Hellebores, anemone, mini daffs in my garden so far.
