What a glorious day of sunshine we had yesterday.
I planted some gifted rhubarb plants, autumn fruiting raspberry canes, and managed to finish planting the snowdrops (over 200 altogether!). The neighbours were out in their garden too – chatting over the fence whilst both pottering in the sunshine is precious after a long winter of snatched hellos whilst dodging the wind and rain. And they kindly gave me some of their naturalised anemone blanda to put amongst the snowdrops.
I keep going back out and looking at all that potential for gorgeousness and imagining how this will look next Spring and even better the next when they bulk up a bit – ooooo! Exciting!
This seems to be turning into a blue and white themed border – I’m wondering what can go in there to continue this colour theme throughout the year.
Here were the crocuses the day before, bravely adding colour on a cold dull day
(They are in a pot, planted under a eucalyptus tree and have been joined by some self seeded flat leaf parsley)
and then the sun came out!
