Back in the garden on this sunny Wed. Have been trying in one day to make everything tidy and complete all the jobs not finished this Winter. I had set myself an impossible task. As nature was doing its own thing and there is lots of colour in the garden I decided if I weeded the many paths it would help give an impression of being in control.
I took some photos in between weeding and cups of tea.
I think these are called Jetfire but as all the labels have disappeared in the front border I will need to look them up. They do look great whatever their name is.
The flowers in the zinc bath have at last flowered. I very carefully planted the bulbs at the same depth, I wanted the flowers to bloom at the same time and to be the same height . They have done their own thing.
The helleborus are at their best just now. I have a number of species but they keep their heads down and are hard to photograph. This is the darkest one I have. Almost black but not quite.
These viola were left in their pot all Winter, sitting in a corner beside the greenhouse. I found them this week, flowering their sock off.
The first butterfly to appear in the garden, at least the first I have seen.
More weeding tomorrow.
