Spring has finally Sprung!


By neellan


After a slow start here my plants have started to make an appearance

The Cherry Blossom a delicate pink in the sunshine today.

Fritillaria – Snakes head and Acmopetala growing together in an old wine box

Snakes Head on their own at the moment in an oak tub

Forsythia a welcome glow by the gate

My favourite Daffodil peeping by the path

Anemone Blanda a deeper purple than they look in this shot.

Magnolia Stellata just a small bush although it is about 25years old – it was in a tub until a few years ago.

Iberis Sempervirens growing over the wall

Aubretia growing between the paving and the wall how do they look so good with no soil there at all!

Hope you enjoyed a look around a few of my Spring flowers.

Looking lovely Neellan, everywhere is so clourful this year, love the shots of the blossom against the sky, Aubretia is so faithful, it just creeps where it likes and seems to thrive with hardly any nourishment...
