It’s not all about snowdrops at the moment. All of a sudden I noticed a patch of colour on the raised bed in the back garden, tiny Iris reticulata were flowering in spite of the gale howling through the trees and the rain lashing at everything in its path. Such tiny flowers, taking everything that was being thrown at them and coping so well.
No sign yet of the new ones that I planted in the woodland 2 yrs ago, they flowered last year, so hopefully they will be up soon.
The tin babybath that I used to fit into 70 odd years ago, has sprung to life with the bulbs that I planted there a few years ago. I keep saying that I will plant the bulbs out into the garden, but let’s be honest, circumstances over took me last year and lots didn’t get done in the garden that should have been done. Maybe this year.
So we have colour near the house from the tiny iris flowers, then in the distance I can see white in the woodland where the snowdrops are tempting me to venture out, no matter what the weather.
Are you tempted into your garden or are your plants still hidden by snow?
