SPRING - busting out in the garden

 A walk down the garden on wednesday evening showed spring had arrived in a rush.  These are the pictures I took and it was lucky I did because by the next day this dwarf cherry had as good as finished flowering.

   After a winter that really feels as though it has gone on forever it was lovely to see the leaves of the Acers  breaking bud and the spring flowers and bulbs all aroundthe garden.   

 The drumstick primulas that we planted last year have survived all of last summers rain and are welcome colour against the mud at the edge of the pond.

Golden marsh marigolds - both single and double varieties.

One of my favourites 

I like the colours and the checkerboard pattern of the flowers.

The stems almost seem to frail to support the flowers.

 Bluebell flowers beginning to emerge.
A frog by the pond - we are hoping that the frogspawn we were given has hatched and we will have a garden of frogs again
