These are difficult times for us all; those with gardens are so lucky to have that space to go into and see what nature is doing. The odd Brimstone has fluttered by, joining the buzzards aloft and the honey bees resting on the chard.
Earlier in the month late flowering snowdrops were in bloom, these were then replaced with daffodils. Many are still around with other spring bulbs joining in the colour show, including anenome blanda, crocus, and scilla to name a few.
Tulips are in bud now and will open over the next few weeks.
The clematis Constance also provides plenty of colour along with food: chard, purple sprouting broccoli, rhubarb to go with the green of the leeks, the ‘sprouting’ parsnips.
