Garden Photos. Spring Flowers.
Warning - photo heavy!
How Does My Garden Grow?
Primula 'Wanda' is just amazing.
So many flower heads.
Our Winter flowering pansy basket has just sprung into life!
A lovely deep red saxifrage, covered in flowers.
A fat bee diving into the 'Wanda' flower for nectar.
The red bracts of the Pieris Forresti are coming out now.
I only planted this aubretia a couple of weeks ago.
Above our little stream (now dry), the bank is covered with violets. Do click on the photo to see them properly.
Don't you just love primulas? They never disappoint.
A stunning white and orange primula.
One of the many tulips - I love them.
There are so many of these pretty little narcissus still to come out. Last year they were all leaf and no flower.
Jim planted a few special bulbs last Autumn. These raggy white/blush pink tulips are so delicate.
I think my favourite are the daffodils below. I just love them:
We have a whole small bed of these narcissus.
Magnolia Stellata with a berberis behind.
Below the magnolia is this tulip (and some others).
Magnolia Stellata close up.
Sculptural tulip buds against an olive bush. Sadly the olive is one of the plants we have lost due to the severe Winter we had.
These cheerful little tulips are under the Magnolia too.
This is a joiner I took from down by the cottage. It gives quite a good view of the front garden. Do click on it to enlarge.
I hope you've enjoyed a look around the front garden.
