Spring is almost here and the garden is starting to respond to the increasing light levels. The camellias need to be featured as they are looking lovely at the moment. I was a bit concerned that the snow and overnight frosts would play havoc with the flowers, but so far they are all right. Above is an unnamed one given to me by my Mum.
Camellia St Ewe is providing a lovely splash of colour down at the bottom of the garden...
...as is Yoimachi, which has been flowering for ages.
Another unnamed camellia looking so pretty with its blush pink flowers. This is probably a japonica variety.
I planted this little trough of Tete a Tete narcissus last Autumn and they make me smile with their happy yellow flowers.
The colour contrasts well with the cool blue of this scilla.
My standard cherry Kojo-no-mai is also starting to flower.
Cardamine quinquefolia is also doing well - possibly making an attempt at border domination. I keep meaning to dig some out, but in flower it is pretty and then it dies down again, so I forget to do it.
Hellebores in the garden are later than the potted ones. This is Harvington Pink speckled.
This one is Harvington Pink Picotee.
Finally, just because I can, more camellias. Well, when they flower, they should be celebrated, shouldn't they?
Spring is nearly here. I have tulips in bud too, which is always exciting!
So much loveliness, Ellie.ReplyDelete
Thanks, Amalia. The plants are starting to grow and flower and that is always such an exciting time!Delete
Well aren't those camellias wonderful ♡♡♡ Very exciting to have tulip buds too. I'm not quite sure what mine are doing hiding! xReplyDelete
Thanks, Lulu. Unfortunately, I don't have the space or soil type to let the camellias grow to their full potential, so I am enjoying them in their pots. They are looking lovely this year. I am always excited to see the tulips but last year they got knocked back by a cold snap in April. I hope that doesn't happen this year...Delete
Your flowers are wonderful Ellie. My tulips are not in bud yet just a few leaves, the daffodils are nearly here....ReplyDelete
Thanks, sustainablemum. I am hoping that we won't get a cold snap in April because my tulips didn't like that last year. As I am typing this, I can hear a blackbird singing away merrily - Spring is definitely not too far away.Delete
That's good these flowers...ReplyDelete
the crocuses are blooming here with us and the first daffodils...
many greetings to you Thank you for your beautiful photos.
