April Showers & May Flowers?

April showers today (mixed with a bit of snow). I'm glad I have some more crocus pictures from yesterday to share with you, since they are absolutely not going to open today. This is the 2nd year of blooms for these bulbs, they must have had quite a few divisions since there are more blooms per cluster than last year.



& White...

Nothing like a trip to the garden centre on a dreary day. I had planned to hide out in the greenhouse for some warmth, but when I saw the outdoor perennial area was full of plants, I just couldn't resist. A purple drumstick primula, pink english daisy, oriental poppy 'Princess Victoria Louise' and Helleborus 'Christmas Rose' came home with me, as well as 2 Casablanca Lilly tubers and a red potted dahlia in a daisy/ladybug pot (for indoors). I'll hold off on planting until the weather smartens up.

Happy Gardening!

First Blooms of 2011

My little 'Crocuses in the lawn' are the first to emerge. I'm so happy to have a touch of colour around. :)
