Six on Saturday – Spring is on its way

Colour is appearing all over the garden. It pleases me greatly when the Tete a Tete  in the Three Wise Monkeys wall planter burst into flower soon to be joined by Muscari. The planter was made just for me by a local sculptor and I love it in all seasons.

Crocuses are appearing around the wall garden, some orange and some purple.

The Snowdrops please me the most at this time of year. They survived last week’s snow and are still going strong.

The Marguerites haven’t stopped flowering since I planted them early last Summer. They really are troopers! I love the swirly pattern in the middle.

The Skimmia has had its bright pink buds  all Winter and I look forward to the buds bursting into their beautiful pale pink. This glaring pink is definitely not a favourite!

Skimmia Japonica

Iris Reticulata are another favourite. They are so delicate and appear before their leaves so really stand out. They will soon be replaced by Muscari.  We have them in a pot underneath a Cornus whose buds are showing already. I hope we have no more harsh weather or the buds may be lost.
