I am not going to say that February has flown by as I am not sure it has. It might have been the longest February in living memory and it isn't even a leap year! We have had quite a bit of weather too. There have been some very breezy days, some rainy days and latterly some very welcome sunny days. There has been frost but frost is a small price to pay for the some precious sun.
In the driveway the Cornus officianalis is a froth of yellow. This seems a slower growing shrub than the Cornus mas I have in the back garden, but it is a wonderful shrub and planting it in the driveway means I see it every time I leave the house and come home. Of course these days I am usually doing this on foot as I am wandering off for a walk.
Meanwhile the Spring Border is starting to look more Springy, this is good. Never have I felt the need for Spring as I have this year, never.
The Contorted Hazel sits well in the Wild Garden, flanked by the Winter Honeysuckle and the Catalpa Tree. The snowdrops are flowering well in this part of the garden and I have just bought another 100 in the green to plant out.
is my tradition, on the pond which is still nicely full. There is definite newt movement happening at the moment and I am looking forward to the first frogspawn. Soon I think, soon.
Thanks as ever to Helen for hosting this meme.
