From temperatures around 20 degrees C earlier in the week, it feels as if we are back in Winter this weekend here in the UK. However, the garden is coming to life and seems to be coping with the downward temperatures. My standard cherry Kojo-no-mai is flowering well. I treated myself to it last year, at the beginning of lockdown, but it had just finished flowering when I received it.
A year on and it is looking lovely.
Some tulips in the border are starting to bloom too - i am not sure if this is Brown Sugar or Cairo!
A little self seeded purple primula is flowering under the patio table.
Bright blue scillas.
The beautiful native primrose which has seeded itself at the base of a rose in a pot.
A violet which has seeded itself everywhere, but is welcome nonetheless (unless it is where I really don't want it to be).
Beautiful Lathyrus vernus which is a joy every year. This one is in a pot and features on my blog every year, because it is always a delight to see it.
Happy Easter to you and keep warm. I believe snow is forecast for tomorrow!
