    Snowdrops were out as early as end-December, but today the weather here was gorgeous, so I enjoyed taking pictures of everything! :SUNsmile:

      Thanks for that ray of sunshine Angelina:)

      Most of the UK has been sat under a grey cloud for a week now, at this rate the only thing growing will be Snottites:sad:

            I actually managed to catch the Crocus on the one day a year that they look good (ie; not freezing or raining, and the sun is actually out!)....................

                Our garden tends to get going a bit later than a lot of others but it's just starting now :dbgrtmb:

                Although it's too early for Hebes to flower we find that the leaves are giving us a show of their spring colours.

                      This erysimum (can't remember whether it's Bowles Mauve or Chelsea Jacket :doh: ) is just getting ready to burst into lots of flower

                      P1150669.JPG

                      Some allium Christophii are beginning to show
                      P1150667.JPG

                      These are some of our pure white Aquilegias coming through - you can see the difference in their leaves (a lighter green) from the coloured Aquilegias to the right
                      P1150678.JPG


                      I'm already planning how I'm going to cook these :)
                      P1150694.JPG

                      There have been lots of bumble bees around today and they're really loving the flowers of the sarcoccoca

                        Thanks Shiney! I have a major issue with squirrels (?) stealing my labels. As I've added my own bulbs to the garden I've marked them, but the little sods think that it's funny to nick my labels! Looks as if my mystery bulbs are Allium christophii.

                        Your Rhubarb is looking mouthwatering!
