Planting tulips in pots has worked well. Angelique is in bloom, one of my favourites. Waiting in the wings is Red Passion.
Spring baskets have been filled with trailing violas.
Clematis Armandii now covers most of the ugly fence at the back of the garden. Not recommended for small gardens or the feint hearted :) .........to say it is vigorous is an understatement. I love it, the fragrance is beautiful and the flowers prolific.
Pieris makes a fine display. I catch its scent as I walk to the front door. Usually it is covered in bees.
I never tire of wild violets. They seed freely here. Such pretty little flowers.
The weather is slowly warming up. Temperatures are around 10C (50F). We had a frost last night, which did not surprise me. I had covered tender plants, so all is well..............
Enjoy your Spring garden.
