As most of you know, my favourite area of the garden is the woodland. Spring, I believe, is the prettiest time of the year with regard to woodland plants.
Each year I await the arrival of the first Epimediums. I love tiny flowers, and the only way to truly appreciate these is down on my knees. Versicolor is a real charmer with its low clump of evergreen foliage, attractively tinted when young. Loose sprays of yellow and pink suffused flowers are so pretty.
The cream coloured violet appeared in the garden a few years ago and is working its way through the woodland. This is a gift from Mother Nature and I am truly grateful.
The garden Robin has been busy making his nest in our post box by the side of the farmhouse gate. Sadly, I have had to deter him. I did go to the garden centre and buy yet another robin box, which I have located near the post box. Lets hope he uses it :)
Have a great gardening weekend.................I am planting roses today.
