signs of spring..


By usernut


managed to get out and check out the garden today.. at last.
opened my mini greenhouse and coldframe to water the plants and found it was actualy quite warm inside for a change.
most things are doing ok, think i,ve only lost about 5% of things I stored over winter.
plenty of new growth showing on somethings too.
Daffs and tulips are sprouting up..

as are the buds on my Acer..

and on my clematis which will be trimmed shortly..

Still some colour living despite the terrible frosts..

all in all it,s not looking too bad considering..
great to get out for a wee while.

It's all looking very healthy . . . my Clematis all need 'training' along the wires . . . husband doesn't know it yet but he's got to tighten the wires up when I've disentangled the Clematis ! : o )

Agree with above...
Good luck, Megan, with untangling your climbers...

Lots looking promising there., Usernut..
