It’s good to be plotting…

bumble-bee-on-a-crocusagain after several months of armchair gardening.  Friday morning was sunny and warm so I spent a couple of hours happily plotting for the first time this year.


The white crocus Snow Bunting opened in the sunshine which attracted a large bumble bee which worked it’s way from flower to flower.

Elsewhere more all yellow ones have appeared.


That just leaves the purple ones, most of which are in the long planter.






The tulips in one of the large pots are showing well. These are a mix of white Purissima and red Red Impression.


It looks like the coming week will be mostly dry, mild and overcast so I’ll make a start on preparing the areas where I will hopefully be sowing broad beans and planting  onion sets early next month.

Have a good week!

    It is wonderful when the weather changes and you can get to work outside. We’ve had an amazing week here and I’ve surprised myself by what I’ve achieved.

    Gorgeous crocuses, and so lovely to see that bumble bee. There are at least a dozen frogs in our pond right now, I think it must be spring! CJ xx

    It is interesting to see the bee already consuming for all its worth. (The early [bee]and all that…).

    I had a few moments, trying to avoid glorious mud, while getting rid of some of the very dead Crocosomia leaves. I’ll have to pick a time to do a bit more tidying up.

    Your bulbs etc are coming on at a pace. xx

    The Snow Bunting crocus are lovely, I do like the paler varieties. That time of year is finally here when we can start the preparations, even if we’re still holding off seed sowing.
