ages since I've had time to check this site - and had wondered what had happened to you happymarion! perhaps my quick checks had just been on other topics. Yes, I too love your pictures and enthusiasm - it's infectious - and hope you have a wonderful golden jubilee year.
I'm afraid I am a hit-and-miss gardener, and believe that where a plant has made an effort it should be rewarded, so do not always take out things when I should. My venture up the garden to the compost bins amused me as individual crocus plants seem to have popped up all over the grass area near to the winter bed where the real clumps are flowering. The bulbs are all well into their stride - daffodil buds, hyacinth flowers appearing, snowdrops, primroses and anemone blanda all doing their thing.....but oh dear, I dread to think what damage I am doing as I have no paths in my garden - only beds separated by grassy areas and so soggy! No sign of flowers on my auriculas yet - they are growing in clay pots - and the birds have all but stripped all the flowers of the mahonias near the house, but then they were grown partly for the birds.
