So for now I share my March garden pics, most of which were taken during the last week of the month. More pictures, fewer words.
|Glory of the Snow (Chionodoxa)|
taken a few weeks ago and has only just
|The first flush of flowers from Aubretia |
growing through a large lavender
|Flowering Quince (Chaenomeles) in the background |
with Photinia x fraseri 'Pink Marble' foliage in the foreground
|Various Euphorbias by the steps leading up to the garage|
|The Euphorbias have given a sunny appearance to the front garden |
whilst the weather has been miserable
|Spot the little spider!|
|'That' purple leafed Prunus tree, which sadly was never really a |
blast of colour as the leaves come soon after the flowers -
but this year it's been both seeming to happen at the same time.
|I never tire of the catkins on|
the Corkscrew Hazel
(Corylus avellana contorta)
|So here's some more catkins!|
|A bit of blue sky that day! |
Lake seen through a Flowering Quince (Chaenomeles)
These last two are poor quality due to being taken through double glazing but highlights how little has changed, and shows we still had some snow even at the end of March.
|30th March - Hellebores, Primroses, and still |
the first daffodils which have lasted for ages!
|9th April - same flowers still in bloom, including 'that' Prunus tree again.|
Against the trellis is my Honeysuckle which blew off the wall,
trellis and all, during a storm last year.
And so far the only sign of any fresh green leaves are on my Hawthorn, seen here against the backdrop of my big old oak tree. I'm so looking forward to seeing leaves again!
