with the crocuses this year, especially the Snow Bunting that I planted en masse last autumn. They have now finished but a few of the others, such as these white ones, are still flowering.
As these finish some of the daffodils have started flowering. So far there are these tall traditional yellow ones which I prefer to the various others that are available.
Here are the Tete-a-tetes that I planted last autumn in an arc around the dogwood.
Being a dwarf variety they withstand any heavy rain and/or high wind better than the tall ones. Some are multi-headed so they provide plenty of colourful flowers.
I’ve still not planted or sown anything and just about the only plotting that I did last week was yesterday. I armed myself with a small pruning saw, secateurs and heavy duty gloves before cutting out the dead wood from the blackberry bush and dogwood rose. It’s a job that I’m thankful I don’t have to do very often.
Have a good week!
