I've tried to make front of house more colourful 'till we get the spring.

These Primula Suzette is a welcome at front door

On the front window

What a sensible idea, Bev. I tend not to think of pots as I have a bi garden but I might treat myself to some colourful primulas to greet me near the front door

Hi All

As Spring hasn't descended on our garden as yet and leaves are still lingering in their buds I thought I'd share this pic from the end of January this year.

 Looks better with the snow at the moment

...I seem to have only just caught up with this thread, slowly going through it... all lovely photos, including the snowy ones...

perhaps we could all move in to that house in Harrow, on page 6

AS this thread is for gardens visited as well I thought I would post these 2 pictures.

Last weekend I visited York Gate Gardens, near Leeds. I took these to give me a couple of ideas for my garden. perhaps they will give you some as well

Here is my new bed so far, not finished yet.

 Still at the digging, manuring stage, one "Early Sensation" clematis in, but no flowers on it. Then I planted a bit more and went to England for 10 days.

 My babies in the GH grew while I was away.

Lovely clematis Liz. Will be amazing when it has matured 

And a busy GH

Lovely pics - all so colourful. You must be really pleased with the new hellebore - if it were mine I'd give it a name !

Lovely pics Cheerypeabrain. Thank you for sharing

Ooh yes, a name for the hellebore, it is so beautiful! Cheery PB, how about a competition for a name; you of course would be the judge.

What about "Purple Rain"?

I love these violas. Bought them as plugs last autumn.

 And this is my new bed now it's almost done.

Cheerypeabrain, your photos don't have white above and below and you can enlarge them by clicking on them, which is how it used to be. What did you do?

23/04/2013 at 23:12

I have taken photos most years of the garden especially the white wisteria and the flowering time has always been within 2-3 weeks see how it goes this year but just want to say that the photos have been an inspiration I would have sent some of my hellebores BUT as I have been unable to do any gardening this year asked better half to cut the dead leaves from around my hellebore patch.On going out to see how they were looking saw only 1-2inch stumps and all my lovely hellebores in the compost bin!!! He said he thought they were dead and had to be cut down like the rest of the perennials! I know I have to label plants and weeds but!!!!!!!

Lovely photos again. Now the photos on this thread are really showing SPRING. They all just make me smile

Busy Lizzie another lovely pic- you have a wonderful garden.
