I am so pleased with how my garden is growing after the years of neglect it has while the house was leased.
DH widened this border for me last autumn and I planted it with daffodil and tulip bulbs, wall flowers, polyanthas, pansies, viola and stocks. The forget-me-nots are self seeded and very pretty.
All survived the snow in February and now are filling the border with colour.
I love those deep purple and cream tulips.
I never used to plant tulips in the past, but saw them at a garden we visited a few years ago and now I love them. These were a mix of red with the petals of the yellow ones tinged with red bought as a pack.
Its worth buying good quality bulbs as these show.
The green house is now full of seedlings and more can be found in the conservatory. I am determined to have a garden full of flowers with lots of colour and interest. Worth all the hard work of weeding the beds and digging out a most pernicious plant, pretty but it was choking my flowers, wild garlic! It has a pretty white bell flower not unlike a blue bell but very invasive and smells like onions!
Roll on the warmer weather I have lots more to plant.
Happy Gardening all you who love it as I do!
