the Chrysosplenium macrophyllum I bought last year from Crug Farm Nursery. I know it is there somewhere, but will it return?
The Prairie Borders have been cut down now ready for their spring growth. They look dreadful this time of year. It is a good time of year for getting on top of the weeds in these borders, that is what I keep telling myself anyway.
Close by the Aldi acers are getting ready to have their moment to shine. This one has really got quite large, I think it has doubled in size since planting and it is a very good tree.
The amalanchier (not from Aldi) is getting ready to flower.
The edgeworthia looks like it wants to flower, but still needs some encouragement.
and the twisted hazel is covered in catkins this year. I am extremely fond of this shrub, it must be around 15/16 years old as it spent its early years in a pot. It has become a very fine shrub and has such a beautiful form.
In the top corner of the Wild Garden the hyacinths are flowering.
and there are still some snowdrops.
and in the borders the first tulip has opened. How exciting is that?
I finish on the pond, which is getting a bit of an algae-thing going on, so that will need some attention. It is also filling up nicely with frogspawn. It is, thanks to all the rain, very full.
Thanks as ever to Helen for hosting this meme.
