Happy birthday Liri, glad you enjoyed lunch.

been looking at dogwood Verd but think I'm gonna be sensible as I've not really got room.... famous last words. Also the Salix flamingo is giving a similar effect so I may go for a ground cover variety, to plant with red robin and that damned awful yellow helebore.

I've still not come up with the right idea for where the 'big fallen tree' was. Trying to leave it until I've seen summer through.

Cut off and tidied a few more branches from Apple tree, thanks for advice on here and money on Friday. 

White camellia Carolyn (?) almost popping a bud ( it was an Xmas present and again no idea where to put it).

Lots of grasses in the 'feather bed' which i thought were annuals but seem to be happy...?

sounds like fun and games at various hostelries FB! 

watched GW, raring to go now... ok nothing relevant for me in the programme but it gave me enthusiasm and a push!  must get clematises and rose cut back plus apple trees and other stuff which will no doubt be waving at me once I get out there. thought I'd done a good job of the philadelphus but now, with bare branches, it looks like I need to be a bit more brutal at next pruning time ( but difficult to see the branches for the leaves!)???

Wow thanks everyone, I'm totally jealous now! Not been able to look at forum since posted this thread, so just been though it, and now I have a wonderful view of your gardens.
when I'm not at work or locked in the kitchen I'll have look to check on some mentioned which I might have hiding somewhere- thanks for the reminders, I DO have hellebores,phlmonaria and a single jasmine flower (stripped by builders earlier in the year!). Daffodils are barely green shoots up to now. I did find my tubs of bulbs with shoots coming through lying sideways after the winds had blown the tubs over. Did I miss it but no one seems to have mentioned beginia (spelling?).

All I've got are snowdrops and some straggley wallflowers! Make me green with envy over your early flowers.
