Hope you enjoy these photos taken today.
The weather has been really good for giving the garden a tidy up. Many plants are just breaking through. I love this time of the year.

I'm jealous of your Little Leo - I have bought it either two or three times and tried it in two very different places but it doesn't reappear the following year. The tall one doesn't seem to be available any more and I'm wondering if that one was tougher as it was the original one.
Your blossom is fantastic - what a lovely garden!

Gg the first plant is called Leopard's Bane ( Dorium Orientale ). It grows very well in our garden which is clay soil.

you have so much colour in the garden Marjories....it's stunning.
Regards the Dorinicum, I found them to be only quite short lived in my clay soil at my last garden.
It was a lovely day here today too but,I don't like the look of the forecast for the next few days.....very cold!

Isn't it lovely Marjorie. Your garden looks great.

If Doronicum don't like clay perhaps that explains why they die on me. Might be worth taking out some soil and making a planting station with something better.

I think some are said to be short lived anyway, Stera.But, the ones I had certainly were on my clay soil.

The tall one - is it the species perhaps, lasted for years in a different garden.

I forget what the one I had was called. But it wasn't a particularly tall one(20/24 inches probably)

The pansies are a stunning rich mix and the bluebell looks like the English sort, rather than the Spanish ones which were here when we came and are even more 'here' now, it's amazing how they spread! I am going to dig them up while they are still 'in the green' so I at least remember where they are, then plant them up under the hedges of out meadow.

Thank you for your kind comments.
Gardening gives me great pleasure and lots of exercise.
