It seems like its taken forever for Spring to arrive in the garden. We’ve had hail, sleet, snow, plenty of rain along with strong winds and a flood alert due to snow melt.
As they say in Scotland the weather at the start of the month has been “dreek” around here. Though to be fair there have been a few interludes of warm sunshine but not enough to catch up on the 3 week delay of Spring.
At the beginning of April the witch hazels finally finished flowering along with the snowdrops and a few of the Iris reticulata are just about to finish flowering and in their place is all of this…
I’ll let the photos do the talking today and here’s what’s in bloom in my garden today.
Finally I’ll leave you with my favourite flower of the season though it doesn’t have a scent. It is just beginning to flower in my scree bed at the front of the house and its the Pasque Flower: Pulsatilla vulgaris alba. Those little buds look so feathery and soft along with its silvery fern like foliage.
