I hope these Snowdrops hang on in flower till our show.Our Rhubarb serves two purposes, both useful and beautiful (in the great William Morris tradition). First it makes great Rhubarb crumbles (Chris likes these, but not me) and secondly as a great foliage plant close to our pond.A couple of details from some terracotta pots that have made it through the winter.
These miniature Iris are lovely. It's a shame they are so short lived in their flowering, I'm not sure they will stay nice and fresh for our show either.
One of my favourite shrubs is Viburnum carlcephelum. It has the most delicious scent in the spring and I stop to smell it every time I go down the garden path. These are the flower buds emerging.And the leaf buds too. Can't wait to have that scent wafting through the air! Spring is definitely on the way! (-:I thought I'd finish with a Poppy portrait. She was helping me with the pruning......kind of! (-:
