Around the grounds: Late winter

It might be a little dreary outside (and most definitely still chilly) but there’s still plenty to keep me interested out in the garden at the moment. The daphne is still flourishing, the roses pruned and ready to sprout. Iris bulbs are up as are the daffs and erlicheers….my beloved tulips finally popped the first leaves from the cold, wet earth this week. Lavender is delighted with the rain, pansies poking out here and there, the manchurian pears starting to blossom and the clematis in lovely light pink bloom.

I do very little with the garden really – the people that built it originally put in good things that have lasted year in, year out. Nothing else brings me more joy than looking out the windows and seeing things growing and flowering – a true delight to experience!

    Small aside: As i scrolled down I swear the close up of the twig covered in lichen looked like a twig man running across the page.
