What a stunning day here today. Was out painting the face all day and spotted many bees.

 Also have my 1st Tulips coming through, this is 1 of them that flowered last year but I have no idea what variety/species it is.


After some help with colourful yellow shrubs for my garden...thank you :)

If it is sunny you could plant Choisya Sundance. Beautiful yellow leaves

Some plants from my 'Window Garden'

My Hibiscus Sinensis coming back into flower and my Cyclamen Persicum which has been in flower since Late August


What next?

I would wait until April to direct sow preferably

Perfect planting weather today

Planted out some Polyanthus, A Helleborus niger, a Bleeding Heart, A Gorgeous Primula called 'Silver Lace', Some Asiatic Lily's and a wonderfully fragrant Garden Pink called 'Roselly Pink'

Hope everyone else is enjoying their day.

Please could someone tell me what this plant is?

Its an Iris of some kind definitely. They grow from little bulbs.

I would say it is one of the Reticulata varieties at this time of year.

Thats lovely Dove. I wish I had the enthusiasm to do that. Direct Sowing does seem like a possibility at the moment.

The ground hasnt frozen once here this Winter so I guess it would be pretty easy with this lovely weather coming.
