Spring has come in my garden


 Hi,
Is Spring really around the corner,  well it does not real feel like it although the plants say it is.
Last wednesday I took a walk around the garden in the sunshine,  yes between the rain the sun came out to play and here is what I found flowering,  you will have a couple of surprises as you walk around with me.  I dont think we have had a day without rain since the 12th December, 2013
The Snowdrops are nearly over as the picture shows but here is the Crocuses in full bloom.



This is Bergenia Stracheyi   or better known as Elephant Ears with its pale pink flowers.
Here is a little surprise this is a Hardy Fuchsia,  summer flowering Fuchsia,   in a few weeks time my husband will be cutting them down as usual,  for the new growth for summer.
Here is my Pink Hebe,   this has been flowering all winter, and when should it flower,  in the summer,  I don't think it knows what season it should flower now.   This plant is in memory of my old dog (Lhasa Apso)  Shona I planted it when she died but then we moved so I took cuttings of the plant and I planted it here so I had a memory of her.

This picture is a little out of focus its the flowering Quince its just beginning to flower,  and that is early this year.



I dont think my garden knows what season it is,   its so wet I surprised that the plants have not been washed away.

You may have heard the Somerset levels are going down at last,   they are pumping millions of gallons a day and its still waist deep in parts, they still need boats in some parts just to get to their properties.   Its going to be weeks before some of the farmers can even think of getting back to work on their farms,  the damage is beyond words even there barns have been destroyed and months before they can get there cattle back on the farms.  Its amazing how much help has arrived from all over the UK and Europe.  Now hopefully they will dredge the rivers,   so it may not happen again.
Have a nice weekend.
                           Hugs
                       Margaret

  2. Pretty flowers. My brother, who lives in Suffolk, also said the plants in his garden seem a bit confused about flowering time.

  3. Thank you for the lovely walk around your garden. Just yesterday I saw some plastic snowdrops in a shop but it wasn't for sale, just decor in the shop. I love snowdrops, they look so pristine. Thank you for that comment on my last blog post. It just made me smile.
