We've been busy in the garden over the last few days. So much has changed in the last week. The daffodils, muscarii and tulips have gone now and the blooms have moved on to the next stage of Spring flowering.
The Wild Garlic at the top of the garden is in flower. I really must try to use some of it this year to make soup or pesto. I say this every year and somehow never do. It just looks so pretty. The woods where we have been walking are full of it this year and it is such a delight to walk with carpets of white and also still carpets of blue from the bluebells under the trees.
Last year we bought a small blueberry plant and I wasn't sure if it would survive the winter but it has and it is flowering. I was so pleased to see the flowers.
Also in flower now are the Geums above and below, we also have a yellow Geum called Lemon Drops but try as I might I couldn't get a clear photo of their shy, drooping little heads. The pink Geum is Rivale and I've lost the tag for and completely forgotten what the red/orange one above is called.
There are Aquilegias in all sorts of colours
I love the ones above and below with their pretty white 'underskirts' showing.
This plant is also known as Granny's bonnet or Columbine
Above Clematis Montana
Buds on the Chives
Creeping Blue Ceanothus
The ferns are unfurling their leaves. I've no idea what kind of fern this is so if anyone can identify it I'd be grateful. Same with the red Geum above.
In the greenhouse we have seedlings for white foxgloves, Californian poppies and nasturtiums. All waiting to find a home somewhere in the garden.
I think work in the garden will be abandoned for a day or two as we have rain coming our way but I hope we can get back our there soon as there is still such a lot to do.
