So right Verdun, all around the garden it I see signs of it springing into life, hellebores in bud, aquilegia showing all the new tiny leaves, bulbs popping up, lots of things just waiting.
Your garden sounds just like mine was, all grass, dad had put shrubs around the egde but wasnt much on flowers, he liked his vegi plots best.
Conservatories are brilliant for getting the seeds going, I start mine off in the kitchen, then out to the conservatory, then to the greenhouses or the plastic ones, if Incan find them after the winter winds.
I just cannot grow cyclamen, dont know why, too damp maybe?
I saw a gorgeous huge frog in the pond, he was biege and white mottled, just laying on the bottom, when I looked in, he just tilted his head to look at me.
I had a strange bird here today, well, strange to me, he was running up and down an old rotting post, very eratic, picking insects out, at first I thought it was a rat by the movement, it was the shape of the nuthatch, but bigger and was very pale cream with the most strikingly white breast. Anyone know?
