Ok, so I have nothing to report back on. Only that I am very excited to see the days gradually lengthening, I am almost at a point of being able to walk to/from work again – and boy is it needed since the buses in Sheffield are extortionate!! I can go much further for less in London. It’s a joke, and also a rant for another time and place.
I just need to get used to my new boots before I attempt walking because no doubt I’ll get half way and my feet will die on me.
Yesterday I found this guy, standing out like a gem. It was too late for me to attempt photos so I had to wait until today.
Who’d have thought a Caterpillar going into a chrysalis at this time of year?!
As far as I am aware all my plants survived the snow, however I haven’t actually taken a stroll around the garden yet to find out, but all the plants close to the house and in pots on the decking seem to be ok.
Even the campanula hasn’t wilted away under the snow/ice for 5 days… Still seemingly fresh as a daisy! I think I can spot roses in the front garden too, but they may well be mummified…
Definite signs of spring are all around me, buds, bulbs and lengthening days. It’s so exciting and I really need to get the veggie seeds – tomatoes, spinach and lettuce mixes.
These are supposed to be white Foxgloves… looking suspiciously un-foxglovish!
Salvia need potting on now I think!
More flowers have appeared on the Hellebore
It won’t be long until the Crocus come out
The pink Aquilegia… Perhaps it’s time to clear up all the dead growth
The scabious doesn’t seem to have died… In fact none have??
Tulips and Snowdrops
Drumstick Allium and Crocus
New Lupin growth
