New Leaves, A Visitor and Back Field Residents

Our Silver Birch has been quite slow about bursting into leaf and we were getting a little concerned so were very happy to see the first leaves at the weekend.

A very delicate spider appeared on the purple sage.

The lambs in the back field are growing very quickly.

Six on Saturday – Winter Structures

I had thought to show you the signs of Spring in our garden – a lone Daffodil, Primroses and Snowdrops but Propogator himself did that so I’ll show you Spring later as it develops.
I love the effects of winter on the plants which show their structure more clearly when the foliage has gone or is dying.

Fern skeletons

Aquilegea seed pods

Zebra grass, Miscanthus Sinensis

Beautiful Birch stems

 

Weeping Beech

Cotoneaster

So, those are  my Six this Saturday. For more Sixes on Saturday, from gardeners all over the world, take a look at the site mentioned abovet https://thepropagatorblog.wordpress.com.
