flowering cherry flowers I think, as well, though Gold1locks is right that it's easier if you see the bark too

Ouch Berghill!

Thanks Pentillie - your post has made me smile and you are so right - I am happy too - weather predictions for north London are on the up (20 degrees end of next week - digging out the Tshirts!) and we all 3 spent a lovely afternoon pottering in our tiny garden - OH tidying shed, daughter aged 5 watering with her small can and me removing the latest neighbourhood cat poo from new beds, inspecting my new plants and dreaming about all the other ones I still need to buy (but can't rwally afford - hey ho!) 

SPRING IS COMING - no, really it is - HANG IN THERE EVERYONE 

bulbs throughout the seasons

Very true Nut - I didn't know the difference either until I got my seeds the other day - mine is only 100% cornfield annuals mix and no perennials. Apparently it'll do best on good soil too, rather than poor. 

Thanks for the advice Welsh - so unless I need to mow (which hopefully I won't as there'll be little or no grass) then corms/bulbs are ok? Just wondering how long my annuals will last until I can remove them, to give space to the autumn bulbs...if it's late August/early Sept, could I also plant my cyclamen hederifolium and Sternbergis crocuses in early September straight after I remove the cornfield annuals, and still get a good display into autumn?

Thanks all - mine has a sloping roof. Still no birds in it though  but possibly OH hammering and generally pottering to and fro from his adored shed isn't helping...

Lovely photos Lead! Envious? MOI??
