Lovely picture Matt.

2nd attempt, here I go.





Your bulbs are about exactly as advanced as mine KEF. Spring seems much earlier compared to last year doesnt it?


Matt it does & I just hope we don't get a really long cold / frozen spell. I'm so looking forward to my Spring bulbs, I've planted lots in the garden and can't wait to see them flower. I go out each day and see how many more have popped up.  I should get a life  


Gorgeous dark purple crocuses KEF.  You're not the only one on a daily shoot count  But i am quite happy with my life - its the little things ....



Chicky you are right  Lovely to see things emerging.


 My new bed this year in the back garden,  it's 3 weeks old so still a bit to go to get it right.


Rain it looks lovely and with the bird bath in the middle you'll have all sorts of self sets, due to your feathered friends.


How lovely, Rain!  Will be lovely to watch it develop.  What are the shrubs??


 one of my favourite winter shrubs


I love it too when it is flowering Annie - but mine seems to spend most of its time sporting frost bitten brown withered clumps of petals - even this year, when frosts have been more rare


 A weird and wonderful Amarylis that I was given for Christmas. It produces huge drops of sticky nectar.


Hi David  yes I'm still here.

Chicky,  the shrubs at either end are Acer's,  I got them from Wilkinson's in 2009 for 50p each as they had no labels they have been in pots since so thought it was time they went in the ground.

Kef,  I'm out hoeing the borders every time the sun shines or it's dry so not a lot gets past me that shouldn't be there as god knows what would be growing otherwise with the amount of seed I put out and the birds I get keeps my busy

I was out today and planted some Anemone Blanda Mixed colours and I have some Tete a tete daffs to go in as well bit late for them they are in a pot at the moment so when they're done I shall replant them in there

Lovely pics everyone. 

KEF, my bulbs aren't as far on as by ours but I too am going out every day checking for new 'life' in my pots.  It's the first time I have attempted layered planting to have a continuous colour dismay in spring (I hope!). I will try and get some pics in tomorrow.


Artjak that's a striking plant, are the blobs of nectar a problem, or do you just place it on something that it can't damage?

Rain my Anemone have got flower buds on.

Tracey I have layered bulbs in my pots, they usually look nice. This year I've crammed more in as I ran out of planting places and it was too wet, so they are trying to escape from the pots.

Lovely cheery photo Annie.


I'm living in Australia now but loving looking at the spring flowers you are putting up. I spent the day at a garden show and bought a beautiful pulsatilla called Perlen Glocke. I already have a white and lavender colour.  Here is a photo of my  Mary Rose which is flowering beautifully at present. 



Oooooooo  Mary Rose is on my list (name of my favourite Aunt).  She is looking beautiful.....

Thanks Chicky. I love your hellebores and daffodils. I bought some miniature bulbs today called Moon Fairies and  some allium siculum. They were rather expensive so keeping my fingers crossed they flower year after year. 

Here's a couple of photo's of my front garden this morning.
