Some flowers what I has gotten in my garden like...
Can't go wrong with hyacinths and daffodils.
Please stay safe!  Wear a mask, and observe social distancing!

Thank you both! They're just a bit of colour to fill in that bed until the rhubarb and the much neglected Japanese maple tree establish in the bed.

Churchyard close by, and the semi-wild 'Turrets' front garden, with a mock-orange in the middle, still wondering if it's a shrub or a tree... (Any tips on how to tackle it would be appreciated)!

It's been just a fabulous year for daffs and now primroses, for some reason!

Gorgeous, Snows!

It never occurred to me to plant daffs on 'The Patch' - it'd would have saved us hundreds as I buy three bunches for the house every week around now...;0)

We've had this one for years, but it has been too shaded to bloom well until recently. It's improving.

My olive tree with pot mates - Anemone White Splendour that I did plant, plus some Scilla and an Aquilea that seeded in themselves.

How old is your olive tree, News?

I was given an identical one several years ago, and it has roughly the same shape, but doesn't get any bigger!

Like your display - early spring colours are just fantastic around now!

7 or 8 years old I think.  It was quite a small tree that I bought in Homebase when they had an offer on.  It was under a tenner. 

It does not get much in the way of special treatment.  Top dressed and fed with chicken manure pellets each spring, then a weekly feed with whatever I am feeding the other pots and containers with over the growing season  :)
