Flowers (I would hope) most people have seen in some form by now, whether in their own gardens, at the side of the road, or in someone else’s garden:
Daffodils and Tulips, along with several other bulbs are well-known spring flowers, but even these have many different types and they all flower at different times, for example the multi-headed white daffodil (right) has only just come out where the single yellows and rockery daffodils are well finished.
Some flowers you may not have seen before:
Things are certainly moving, and if you don’t believe me just take a closer look around – the grass is looking lusher, there’s flowers and leaves coming on plants and seeds are sprouting. Even the trees are starting to get their spring-green haze. Oh, and just quickly you have to check out this asparagus and rhubarb – going to have some tasties by the weekend!
And now a few things to remember:
That a lot of gardens, especially productive ones and at this time of year, aren’t perfect display pieces, but you can put tubs on empty vegetable beds to brighten things up a bit. . .
That we all need to take a minute to enjoy the sunshine that comes our way. . .
And that everybody like to try something a bit different every now and again!
