The most exciting thing about this time of year is how suddenly the borders seem to spring into life and I can start to remember the lovely colours of summertime! (Picture 1)

The Hazel Grove is ablaze with the spring bulbs and the celandine is doing it thing as usual! (Picture 2)

When I took a few minutes to get down and check out the Sedums Puss decided to pretend to be a tiger in the long grass!(Picture 3)

Back on track, I hope!

I have been totally frustrated with all that beautiful weather - between non-gardening intrusions into my gardening time, and then a nasty flu bug that is taking its time to go away I have had little opportunity to do much gardening for the past couple of weeks. As part of my "recovery" I took a gentle walk in the garden and was delighted to find that my Clematis Armandii which has struggled to survive here for the past 4 years has actually surprised me with its very first flowers!

What a difiference!

My son and his little family in Bardelona treated me to a trip to celebrate a "significant" birthday and I was delighted to talke up the offer and spent a lovely week in Barcelona. Arriving back I was greeted by a delightful display of my favourite Spring flowers - the humble Daffodil! But of course there were lots of other Spring flowers to enjoy! Putting up a journal hopefully capturing my delight in how the Spring aspects of my garden have matured.

I am so impressed with my latest helper in the garden. Now only did she know what she was doing but she is also a tireless worker! I was encouraged by her enthusiasm and really enjoyed the company in the garden.

We got through a amazing amount of clearing and tidying as well as getting the compost heaps sorted. We even takled the first of the paths using a new hoe-type tool I bought in Johnstown.

I'll put up a few photos showing the areas we cleared!
