springtime

lots of spring growth about now :)
many of the trees are showing big fat leaf buds, some early flowers about too, like Daisy, Speedwell,
bluebells and wild garlic are showing signs of flower buds too,
while we may yet be in for another short spell of wintry weather, springtime is just getting on with the job :)

Our Wild Garlic is only just starting to show.
The Camellia has about 6 flowers open.
Plenty of leaves on the Roses.

thinks are at a bit of a standstill in our garden, and apart from a few Daffodils that have opened, there is not much happening,
so its nice to see other folks gardens are doing nicely :)

a garden a few doors along the street had a Magnolia with lots of flower buds on it a while ago, but those keen frosts we had have turned the buds into a brown soggy mess, so i think its going to be a flowerless season for that Magnolia, (unless they can produce a second crop of buds that is ? )
