It is raining today, heavy persistant rain. I can hardly hear myself think as the rain hits the conservatory roof. I will not complain. We have a drought order across SE UK and this rain is very much needed. Yesterday, was a lovely day and allowed me time to photograph the blooms beneath the old apple tree. Miniature daffodils are part of the Spring meadow. I love their tiny blooms, they never fall over, or suffer damage from the wind.
Bees are loving this area. They have so many blooms on offer, so for them it is a wonderful source of pollen and nectar.
Aconites and Anemone blanda are a wonderful combination. They will both spread rapidly and eventually, along with other Spring flowers, cover this area. Please note the bumble and 'little bee' enjoying the sun and blooms.
Of course, for me, hellebores will always be the stars of this Spring show. I love this one, with its delicate pink petals. I cannot for the life of me remember planting it. Nothing unusual there :)
'Tutu' is a show girl. You just cannot miss her. My Spring garden would be less without these exquisite blooms.
I am visiting the school tomorrow to meet Rosemary. We will start to plan the insect border for the children. Money has been allocated, so it is full steam ahead.........
