All Alone…..



All alone the first of the Narcissus…minute florets with delicate yellow centres, they look so fragile in the wilds of the garden.  It won’t belong before the more bolshie Daffodils start to put in an appearance.

Brave Spring tries its best….


DO8_2979-tt-ccDwarf Iris on our Patio are bringing a touch of Spring to the garden.


Welcome as the Iris are, we still only have a lone Crocus and a few Snowdrops….it all seems out of sync with the grand seasonal plan.

I do wonder if it ever will get back to what we would call normal
