And still they come.

Wave after wave of beautiful flowers in such a mixture of colours, it seems a never ending rainbow is marching across the garden

Spring bulbs

So many different narcissus


they deserve a post all to themselves.

Gold laced Primulas

Gold laced Primulas are now looking really beautiful

Double Primroses

along with some of the double Primroses.

Muscari latifolium

This Muscari latifolium is such a lovely one with 2 toned flowers – very sturdy and doesn’t seed around everywhere.

Pulmonaria Sissinghurst White

Pulmonaria ” Sissinghurst White ” is always buzzing with all the busy bees.


Cowslips are really coming on now and we can see where we have masses of seedlings, soon to be a drift, wonderful.


These Hyacinths started off as indoor bulbs, they have now settled nicely in the garden, soon to be joined by the ones that we have been enjoying in the conservatory.

Brunnera Jack Frost

Brunnera “Jack Frost” has started flowering and I noticed we have seedlings around it for the first time because I was late cutting it back last year – maybe I should be late more often.

Snowdrop Baxendales Late

My last snowdrop to flower is very aptly named – Baxendales Late.

Bergenia Beethoven

Bergenia “Beethoven” is really in its stride now and looking very good by the front door.

Primula denticulata

Primula denticulata are now popping up in all the damp, shady places.


This Corydalis solida is looking  pretty on the side of the ditch in the wood.

Anemone nemorosa

Anemone nemorosa are now spreading nicely in the woodland and other shady areas, they seem to like the leaf mould mulch that they are given each year.

Fritillaria meleagris

In a very damp area of the woodland we have Fritillaria meleagris spreading nicely. Each year I shake the seedheads when they open and in just a couple of years the new bulbs have formed and are flowering

Fritillaria meleagris

Lovely when they are all out together.

General view

Of course all these pretty bulbs and perennials are joined by all the blossom that is out now, but more of that in a later post. Everywhere is looking so fresh and colourful, the first green leaves are appearing on the trees and the birdsong is wonderful. When the sun is shining , and it has been shining a lot here lately, there really is no better place to be in the springtime than an English country garden !
