Round the garden in 80 days #68

The last post I wrote on the garden featured snow. The weather couldn’t be more different now with bright sunshine and temperatures edging towards 20.

We are also onto the next phase of spring flowers. The glory of the snow are still in abundance in the back garden but in the front one there is now a blaze of colour from the tulips.

Two years ago, the cluster of three tulips on the back lefthand side of the photo were two pink and one yellow. Last year, the yellow disappeared, leaving just the two pink flowers. Now, as you can see, we have yet another variation on theme.

Another unexpected event is the summer snowflake appearing now. I’d thought it should flower in June, although after checking the RHS website it would appear that it does flower in spring.

Anyway, happy Easter to you all. Let’s hope for pretty flowers and pleasant weather for the rest of the spring.

Yesterday, when I wrote this post, I was unaware that it was the 10th anniversary of this blog. 18 April 2022.

About Helen

I have always been interesting in living a more environmentally friendly lifestyle and used to do what I could. Now, I have come to realise that we have reached such a point in terms of environmental degradation that it is more important - perhaps - to focus on building resilience. I therefore do as much as I can to reuse, grow my own and encourage a supportive community, for example. I also keep reading and learning all the time.

    Tulips are just fabulous so big and bold. I’ve had two different ones pop up this year too.
