I heard that 1 March is considered the start of Spring. The Robins have paired off, with collection and nest building taking place. The spot they have chosen is in the ivy just along the side path a couple of feet from the conservatory. I do hope they choose to build elsewhere, or they will need to get used to me walking past their nest to all my compost and potting area.
A few steps down the paths, I peer along the soil to spot emerging perennials. I also look back at posts just to remind me what the beds will look like when they are in full swing. I may have lost some plants, but those that survive will be larger after a winter's rest.
Bees and bumblebees are visiting the crocus and the Rosemary in the short sunny spells we have had over the past week. This morning it is sunny, the sun warming our skin as we enjoyed our morning coffee in the garden. What a difference a couple of days make!
Featuring this week is Pulmonaria 'Sissinghurst White', which I love of many levels but most because it was given to me by a dear friend. Adding a bit of yellow is Corydalis cheilanthifolia.
It appears that Cathy may be succumbing to the charms of yellow flowers....I shall link in my post to hers, and later see what our little group are offering up.
