In Ireland, some people optimistically consider the 1st of February the start of spring. It is also Saint Brigit’s day. The garden does certainly show signs of spring – so let’s be optimistic.
I have two – one white which is already fully open and this lovely red version which is nearly there.
2. Yellow crocus these are planting in grass under a birch tree and are usually the first crocus to appear each year.
3. Similarly these miniature daffodils are usually the first to appear. I have a couple of larger one that are also just opening too.
4. Snowdrops have been up for a couple of weeks – this pot was given to me by a friend a couple of years ago. (Sorry not best photo – always find them hard to photograph).
5. I am happy to report that the Japanese onions I set in the polytunnel a few weeks ago (late) are doing quite nicely.
6. And the replacement for the Victoria plum I lost last autumn is in, finders crossed it will be bountiful in years to come.
We also managed to clean the very dirty windows of the greenhouse and tomorrow I may even plant some seeds!
Many thanks to The Propagator for hosting six on Saturday
