The title of this post has been changed. It was F r o l i c k i n g in the front garden, but seemed to be attracting the attention of some internet robots so I changed it!
The title of this post, ahem, might lead you to wonder what this is about, but it isn't anything worrying - promise! Thinking of post titles just defeats me sometimes and I thought this might make you laugh!
The front garden has of course not been left out of the spring gardening. I have seen buds coming out on the clematis - no pics! - and it will soon be full of growth and buds.
I like to have some pots of flowers by the door - especially in the spring - to welcome visitors. The bay tree is doing well and so are the polyanthus. I added some daffodils in two pots.
The bucket was full of crocuses that I showed you and now these miniature daffodils have come through to take the place of the crocuses.
One of the best things about spring is that the hornbeam hedge sheds its leaves - somewhat messily! - as the buds of the new leaves push the old leaves off. That is a definite sign of spring.
We have always had these wild violets growing in the grass, but the seem to have increased in number this year.
They are so pretty. I thought about picking a tiny posy, but the stems are so short that I left them in the grass. It seems that they are very happy there!
It has been so good to get outside again and enjoy the garden. I am hoping to do some more this weekend and we will probably spend Easter doing lots more too!
How is your garden growing?
