Wave after wave of beautiful flowers in such a mixture of colours, it seems a never ending rainbow is marching across the garden
So many different narcissus
they deserve a post all to themselves.
Gold laced Primulas are now looking really beautiful
along with some of the double Primroses.
This Muscari latifolium is such a lovely one with 2 toned flowers – very sturdy and doesn’t seed around everywhere.
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” 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.
My last snowdrop to flower is very aptly named – Baxendales Late.
Bergenia “Beethoven” is really in its stride now and looking very good by the front door.
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 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.
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
Lovely when they are all out together.
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 !
