Spring Flowers


Despite the weather being undecided, I know it’s spring because my bulbs have begun their flowering. It brings me such joy to see these small bursts of colour in the garden.



This little orange crocus looks like it’s burning in the afternoon sun.

Glory in the Snow

Glory in the Snow

The “Glory in the Snow” didn’t make an appearance until after the snow (although some wet stuff may head our way tomorrow), but I’m enjoying the little blue flowers nestled under the Haskap Berry bushes that have just started showing some leaf bud swelling.



But this little gem is my favourite, the ring of orange in the centre sets off the cream to perfection.

The garden comes to life – what a fabulous time of year.
