Spring has sprung here in Surrey. Everyday sees a new type of flower open up. Hard to resist taking pictures!
The double Hellebore came into the garden via one of those offers where you pay postage only for ten plants. The plants are tiny and usually at the ordinary end of the spectrum. Indeed the other nine are simple single flowers. As luck would have it I planted this one by the front door and so I get to see it often. What’s even better is that it keeps on flowering well into May, three pounds well spent!
The Oregon Grape, Forsythia and Aubretia all came with the house and were part of the pleasure of our first Spring in the house seeing what was in the garden. Later we will have lots of bluebells, for our first couple of years they were just leaves and no flowers. Somebody must have flicked a switch because ever since the garden has been a sea of blue.
