Looking good Chris, I see your very own 'Nigel' likes to sneak on lots of pics  Gardens look better with a dog in (or a cat ). I'll post one later of my 'Nigel' guarding the apple tree on Tuesday

A few more from this morning.

The lane above the barn already has some nice ferns and foxgloves appearing naturally. I want this year to make sure these really get maximum support by controlling the nettles, himalayan balsam  and brambles that last year buried everything.

 Our small woodland area across from this garden will be thinned out a little to let some light down to the floor this year.I really want to get masses of Hellebores and other  woodland flowers naturalised in here.  When is the best time to plant them?

Nice pics there!  Unfortunately I won't be contributing any for a bit as my little digital camera has died.  When I can steel myself to spend money on a new one I shall show you how pleased I am with my broad beans

David S, does it creep? I wondered about Phlox Stolonifera, but I'm not sure.

Lovely, bright azaleas, David K.
