The grass is growing, the fields are losing that dirty mud colour as fresh crops start pushing upwards, and the trees are rapidly turning green – you know that fresh lime green of sycamores that stands out so dramatically against a blue sky?
Talking of blue, my Grape Hyacinths are looking exceptionally good this spring, having spread everywhere I look. Plenty for a vase for Cathy’s Monday meme.
In fact, there are quite a few white ones too, as well as the pale blue Muscari ‘Peppermint’ which I especially love.
But not only the Muscari are enjoying the unusually warm temperatures this April, with the odd shower and cool nights as refreshment…
Tulips, daffodils, pulmonaria, cowslips, mahonia, snowflakes, hyacinths…
I must also show you a photo I took on our outdoor table so you can see what the rain brought with it – no, not pollen, but Sahara sand!
Thanks to Cathy at Rambling in the Garden for hosting this meme… I am late posting today, but am always glad if I have the time to join in! 🙂
