    It's lovely when the flowers open, they're pure white. I've had it about 15 years now and it's never flowered so good, it's absolutely smothered. I've got the feeling it's to do with the hard Winter last year which if it is we'll have none next year as we've only had two frosts and no snow at all this Winter.

      These are the first of our snowdrops coming through. We have about 40 patches of them elsewhere in the garden but those are still tiny.

      They're also gradually spreading through the Hellebore beds

      And theses snowdrops weren't there last year They've popped up amongst the Allium siculum (that we thought we had dug out completely :doh:)

        These have worked their way into the main cyclamen bed and I've spotted a load of tiny snowdrops coming through the cyclamen as well. Not to be outdone the cyclamen are now spreading through the other beds and across the lawns!

                Looking good there Logan :)
                My veg soil is also looking good right now :)
                Been working on it this afternoon getting it to a fine tilth; it is dark, deep, friable and rich thanks to another application of compost. Still feels warm too. Keen to sow carrots etc but will wait another couple of weeks. Spring def in the air these past few days:):)
