The skies have been murky and grey, but the chirpy resident robin kept on singing his tuneful songs

……………………………………………………………………..

Then, at last, the atmosphere started to brighten …


……………………………………………………………………..

… flower colours began to emerge


……………………………………………………………………..

Now, the welcome sun is breaking through


……………………………………………………………………..

Cherry Ingram is showing off her flowers


……………………………………………………………………..

The berberis is delighted to feel the warmth


……………………………………………………………………..

Conker is as pleased as punch with his primulas


……………………………………………………………………..

The hyacinths are providing a heavenly aroma


……………………………………………………………………..

Our gravel garden is thriving …


……………………………………………………………………..

… with lots of happy heucheras


……………………………………………………………………..

Truffle is winning the contest for the Waggiest Tail


……………………………………………………………………..

Akebia is percolating its superb scent … mmmmm chocolate :o)))


……………………………………………………………………..

Among the houseleeks, cheeky viola faces are smiling


……………………………………………………………………..

… and behind the pebble garden, in the bird bath, a sparrow is a-splishing and a-splashing

Thank you for visiting our gardens.

Hooray ! Springtime is here !
