Quite unnoticed by me the forgotten pot and bucket of grape hyacynth (muscari) had grown, multiplied and bloomed! So jolly and springy. And today it promises to be warm again. The daffs are out in the street too so here’s hoping they are left alone for us all to enjoy.
A bit straggly I know but has made me feel more optimistic about restoring the wee flower bed and rejigging the space in the coming months.
The deep glowing blue of the flowers is not represented accurately, my wee camera does tend to freak out with some colours but I didn’t want to fiddle with the pic.
Also awake is the first wee violet, these lettle devils are impossible to move so I’m just letting them grow wherever unless they are a nuisance.
forsythia – pruned last year to get rid of the longest straggly branches, this has forced the flowers in nearer the base.
