My Bluebells have started to bloom. I think they are about 2 weeks early. :)

:) Bluebells appeared this week. One Berberis is looking great, the other is looking not so great. Percy the Pyro-wotsit is looking very good. The Juniper tree is not doing much but still looks comfortable after 3 years. The native shrubs are doing very nicely indeed (recommended). The freebie Rowan suggested by GM many moons ago is at last starting to show some life this year.
A few minor changes to make this year, but still on track for a garden that will sustain a wide variety of wildlife, including me beloved Sturklings who are nesting very nearby. :) :) :)

Dug out and thought I had got rid of my Grape Hyacinths last year. They were taking over the garden. However I missed a few. Planted the ones I dug out in the local wood. Nice display.

The may blossom has been out in my area for a week or two. It is now acceptable to cast a clout.(weather permitting)
