Greyness abounds with cloudy, misty and damp days.  We need some colour  :D

The dwarf iris are off, the cyclamen are bright little dots of hope and the snowdrops are emerging looking serene and lovely as always.  It will be spring soon  :)

I try to take one day at a time, but sometimes several days all attack me at once...

Grabbed some pictures before the storm. 

Snowdrops now out in a crowd.  The more the merrier I say  :D

Hellebore looking lovely.

A pot of joy - crocus Prins Claus and Spring Beauty.  They are adorable  :D

Plot primroses. 

These started as a few scrawny plants rescued from the communal dump heap.  I saw flowers struggling through the waste and rescued them.  A couple of years on and the little spot I planted them in next to my darlek bins is a blaze of colour  :D

Tulips  :D  The dwarf ones are out and they are Lilac Wonder and Little Beauty.  The first of the taller ones are just starting as well.  Those are Gavota and Strong Gold.

A few pics from my garden this April- I finally feel like I am getting somwhere with it!

In the mix are tulips, Dicentra, spanish bluebell, Solomans Seal, wild garlic  (all 3 grow like weeds!) And pansies that are still flowering from September.

A pretty, but perhaps not exceptional Azalea in my front garden this afternoon.
What is remarkable is that it was there when I bought the house 21 years ago, and has had literally no care or maintenance of any kind since then - perhaps 20% wider but I for one can certainly forgive a touch of middle aged spread!  ;)

Sow your seeds, plant your plants. What's the difference? A couple of weeks or more when answering possible queries!

One of the best things about being an orang-utan is the fact that you don't lose your good looks as you get older
