- Late March March 28, 2017
Just a few days now until the spring opening (1st April) and we are all very busy getting ready.
Massed daffodils have been looking good for a while, but the last few days of sunshine have kicked in that miraculous spring explosion of green shoots and early flowers – fritillaries, primula denticulata, and marsh marigolds all looking great – and the weeping willows hazed with wonderful light yellowy green. It’s all very exciting!
- Welcome to Spring March 6, 2017
It’s a day of rather cautious sunshine, a good one to welcome the early spring and to celebrate the first words of my new mini-blog on a new website. The site has been made by James Weymouth to update the one he made for me ten years ago. I hope you will enjoy them all – the spring, the site and the blog.
When writing the blog I promise I will stick firmly to the old idiom of a picture being worth a thousand words.
So that is enough already and we will take a short walk (6th March) to see what is popping up in the garden. Sadly the snowdrops are looking tired by all the wind, except for a few guarded by William, so you will just have to imagine about a million of them all looking vibrant.
