Spring’s Colourful Spotlight……


Our First Tulip..

After many dark days in the garden over the past few months Spring is now shinning its spotlight creating some startling colour hotspots.

Hardy larger Daffodils are now being replaces by there more delicate cousin the Narcissus, whilst Forsythia is not going to be out done on the yellow front…

The Mahonia who’s hardy dark green leaves have shrugged off the heavy rains are now adding their own startlingly red vibrance…  contrasting with the more subtle shades of the early Pink Blossom’s

Hyacinth Time….


On dull damp days it is nice to have a flavour and aroma of the Spring to come.  A Hyacinth on the coffee table works wonders.
