The woodland walk has surpassed all expectations this Spring. The mild wet winter certainly seems to have given plants a boost. There have been losses, Pulmonaria 'Sissinghurst White has disappeared. Strange because Lungwort thrive here.
Summer snowflake is in bloom.........much too early.
Several Helleborus 'Anna's Red' have been planted. A Christmas gift from my mother.
As I walk along the woodland path, the beautiful scent of Clematis Armandii fills the air. Planted over six years ago, to cover ugly fencing along the back of the garden, it has struggled. Not so this winter, the mild/wet weather has helped it romp along the netting, it looks beautiful.
As I leave the woodland area I notice feathers on the grass, a sure sign the Sparrowhawk is back.
Another gardening year ahead, the sap is rising. I have a spring in my step, do you???
