First Day of Spring

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 naturalisedĀ 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!

they seem to shout Hurray!!!!cra feast of purple with those bright spikes of yellow and orange – fabulous.

Happy gardening!
