Spring has arrived, and the hyacinths are blooming
I love this time of year when you spot new shoots appearing on dormant stems; it gives you encouragement and promise for the months to come.
Our Spring flowering bulbs are flourishing and blooming in our beds. The hyacinths I planted in pots on the patio smell exquisite; the fragrance is hypnotising.
Sadly, our dainty dwarf iris and crocus have finished for the season; they just don’t last long enough for my liking as they bring a smile to my face.
If you love exploring vibrant and colourful gardens, I urge you to visit Keukenhof Gardens in the Netherlands; their displays are magnificent.
I don’t know about you, but I long for brighter days to see sunlight beaming across the garden. It has been hit-and-miss here in the southeast of the UK. We appear to have one sunny day, and the following four or five are overcast.
Fingers crossed, we are in for a beautiful spring.
What we’ve been up to this monthIn the garden and on the website
We’ve managed to make some headway into the unruly geranium problem that we’ve had in our cottage garden. However, as time passes and the soil begins to warm up, quite a few of the new plants I purchased last year are peering through the earth.
So, even though we’re on our hands and knees tackling this job, it’s still quite a delicate process, as we don’t want to remove the lovely flowers, we nurtured last year.
I’m really hoping our cottage garden looks fuller in 2023.
