What a difference a week can make in the garden.
With the weather going up and down like a yo-yo, it’s interesting to see the first real stirrings for the season ahead.
First up is Ipheon. I planted this up last autumn; it has a lovely pale blue flower. There should be quite a number more to come. Here it makes a nice contrast with the red-twigged dogwood.
Next to make an appearance is the Muscari. Again, this was planted last autumn, so I will be keen to see any improvement as the spikes emerge.
Lastly, even though it’s not a bulb, the first little Primula flower has also opened, so it can have a place here too, as it is probably one of my favourites 🙂
The first stirrings of spring (even in a mild climate like mine) are always so subtle and call for a keen eye, but I guess that is part of the fun!
