We waited a long time for Spring this year and although the heavy rains were welcome, they have made a lot of work in the garden Every vaguely sunny day I have been out weeding, cleaning up the remains of the bulbs, doing lawn edges and tidying after winter. Now Spring is here and almost gone and I still have to clean up the later bulbs, lay mulch, another weeding and a lot of Spring pruning.  Nevertheless, despite the weeds, the garden has really put on a great display.

Early in Spring, the irises were really gorgeous

The prunus showed its Spring coat

The dogwood looked stunning

 The crab apple looked like a bride in her lovely gown

The magnolia looked a dream

The tulips popped up among the bluebells

And the aquilegias came up all over the place

I do love the garden in Spring. Still more to come next time.
