Spring has arrived now, although it has been a bit colder again this week. However, the plants don't seem to have minded. This is quite a photo heavy post, but I just couldn't help it - I love this time of year! Above is Clematis Frankie...
and here is elegant 'Blue Dancer', both growing up the arch.
Tulips in the border have done well - Brown Sugar or Cairo - not sure which.
Brown Sugar/Cairo with a little Ronaldo.
Narcissus Triandrus which came back this year.
Clematis 'Rosy Pagoda' looking pretty.
Lathyrus vernus with pink and purple pea-like flowers.
Clematis 'Rosy Pagoda' again.
...more Clematis Frankie...
...and again with tulip 'Danceline'.
New Ronaldo tulips, planted in a pot.
Brown Sugar/Cairo, Ballerina and apple blossom.
Ballerina, Brown Sugar/Cairo and Danceline.
Ballerina, Ronaldo and a little Red Shine - I love this colour combination.
Erythronium Pagoda with its delicate swept back petals...
...near to an Epimedium x versicolor sulphureum, I think.
These tulips are out at the front, in a pot. They started off yellow but have turned a lovely orange. They are 'Sunlover'.
The fringed tulip which seems to come back each year now.
More fringed tulip.
Magnolia Susan and Lilac flowers...
Ballerina in a pot, really glowing.
Finally (well done if you made it this far), a rest for the eyes in the form of Ginkgo Biloba Mariken. It will be the turn of alliums, aquilegia and astrantias next and then roses!
