Spring is coming

I’ve had a poke around in the garden today. It really makes me want to get going, but I know there is probably still a lot more bad weather to come. So, at the moment just looking, this is what I’ve found.

The daffodils that had their first bloom at the end of November, now a few more flower heads.

Then Cyclamen Coum had been hiding under the snow, how can such a delicate little flower survive? The cyclamen mark where my two little dogs are buried as well as the ornament below. They were wire haired sausage dogs, not sheepdogs !!!.

Then I was excited to find this pot of snowdrops not far off of breaking into flower.

But to my amazement & delight !!!


This small clump of snowdrops. Just a bit more sunshine & they will be swinging their little heads around.

And lastly, my bargain of the day. A supermarket reduced these Hellebore Niger, mainly because they hadn’t been watered & were badly in need of a drink.

Lovely Pam can't wait to get outside either, noticed today after a bit of snow had melted my hellebores had buds emerging, exciting, hoping for a good snowdrop display myself this year the amount of bulbs I planted late spring last year, at the moment they're still hidden under the snow. :-)

It's wonderful to see signs of spring about. Our plants are tougher than we think to be able to survive outside at this time of year.

I'm wondering if something had tried to root them out Sambaz, & not succeded. I only photographed these late this afternoon, so I think I'll put some compost around tomorrow. They've been in this spot for some years now.
Glad you all liked them, it certainly lifted my spirits.

Last year, a friend of mine was moving & gave me a few hundred bulbs in the green & I've planted those under my silver birch tree area (White Garden) see my first blog.

Nice blog Pam. The hellebore look nice and healthy now you have given them a bit of TLC. The snowdrops are lovely. Some of mine are proud of the soil but still flower well.

We are a bit further on here. I've been to a NGS garden today will do a blog later but that had quite a lot of interesting plants in flower. Inc. snowdrops of course that was it's main aim.
Thanks for all comments
