Everything’s perked up in the last couple of weeks - daffodils are everywhere (quite literally.. I may have to do something about that once they go over…) and some already flowering profusely (the little ones), crocuses have come up through the lawns and doing much the same, a single, shamelessly pink primrose is brightening up a border next to a few violas, snowdrops have been going strong for a little while now.
Never mind all the flowers, the box and roses have really taken off! Can’t wait to see what one of the red ones does, on the wrought iron fence; it really did nothing last year except produce a couple of misshapen blobs (still very pretty), - and now it is covered in fresh, new, red growth.
Today the large holly finally got it. Another go and it will look quite perfect, instead of being dark, odd, and monolithic. It’s a shame it doesn’t produce berries.
