1st photo is of a hellebore I've had a few years now just coming into flower. It's a super looking flower and seems to really like the shade of the front garden.
2nd photo is of the ever reliable and fantastic primula Dark Rosaleen. Clumps up nice and fast and I plan to spread it even more this year. My very top primula. Hope to get a bit done this weekend.

Delighted to see these in full flower today when I came home. I have been watching them for the last week. They are a super daffodil and stand up really well to the elements and stay in flower for several weeks as far as I can recall. They are also a full month earlier than last year.

Got out in the garden for a small bit again today and I'm really starting to see some progress. I pruned my Wisteria a small bit to try and keep the tree shape as I have 2 wrapped together. Anyway I. Noticed I have loads of buds on the purple flowering one so can't wait and also what I think are two buds on the white flowering one. So it's gonna be very exciting over the next month or so.
Got more weeding and tidying done today and also planted out my new tree fern with plenty donkey manure and multi purpose compost in around it. Really like it's new spot by the pond. Really getting going now and enjoying seeing all the new growth on things and all the daffs and primroses ready to flower.

Was in hanley's today and had a look through the summer bulbs with nothing really appealing to me until I spotted this stunning Honka Dahlia. Got 3 for €5.95 and it's called Verrones Obsidian, I love that it looks almost black with a hint of red. I think it's very tropical looking and will fit perfectly in here.

This evening after being inspired by Paddy & Mary's I went out into the garden to get a bit done and quite pleased with the work. I did more cutting back and weeding. Planted our clematis princess Diana and the dark hellebore I won two weeks ago and also a lilly African queen. Did some watering in the greenhouse as it hit 20 degrees in there today and gave the brugs a small feed. Hoping to get another small bit done tomorrow all going well and it's relatively dry. Some photos of the ever reliable tete a tete and new hellebore plant out, I can't capture the true colour of the hellebore but it is fantastic blue-ish black kinda colour :D
