Spring has sprung down in the leaves ‘n bloom garden for GBBD. Its not a massive show of bloom throughout the whole garden – just the parts where the rays of welcome sunlight pierce the cold ground with an intensity of heat encouraging those little shoots from the spring bulbs to break free, spring forth and bask in the glorious sunshine. This year the garden is 3 weeks late in producing these blooms.
