Spring seems to be a little later this year. It is only now that the plants are growing. I have enjoyed a delightful display of yellow daffodils in their pots scattered around the garden.
The fruit trees had yellow and mauve crocus around their base.
Most years the Camellia has been in bud and flowering in Jan./Feb. but not ‘till April this year.
Now the fruit trees have there leaves; the rhubarb growing strongly; Lavender has the fresh look on its leaves; the Rosemary displays its tiny mauve flowers; The butterfly tree has its fresh green leaves;Primroses are out
I have been pruning some of my small bushes in pots. Put more soil on to the borders. In my preparation the sun sends warmth. Clear skies above and birds sing. I’ve seen Butterflies and Bees.
It is still cold first thing in the morning but later warms up.

To stop the washing from being in awkward places I have to arrange the plants in such a way as she cannot put the washing to obstruct my views. S Last year she constantly moved the washing around the garden saying , ‘I’m following the sun’!
