Fiery Combination

Yesterday while working in the garden I noticed that these little fiery fellows were on the verge of opening, then this morning with their faces turned up wards saying look at me was a real delight as they are in the bed along the NE of the house. The redish pink of the hellebores makes this a lovely combination to brighten up this bed with skimmia, eleganus providing a backdrop for them. It's such a joy to see flowers popping up and unfurling their buds in this beautiful weather. Only managed to get 3 hours yesterday, few things to do then it's out for another stint of gardening. Polytunnel cover ordered should be able to collect from JF Mckenna Armagh on Wednesday so with luck the polytunnel will be up and running by the weekend.

Myrtle this was a case of pure chance that they look well together, a short while after I took this photo it had closed up again as the sun had moved totally off the front of the house.

Dave tomatoes are Roma and Costoluto Fiorentino hopefully in the tunnel and Garden Pearl in planters
