After quite a few years of growing veg in our little city garden I’ve decided to give flowers a go this year. I started with bulbs thinking even I can’t mess them up but hadn’t banked on the crazy weather this spring. My snowdrops tried to come up to early because Christmas was so mild and then got clobbered by the repeated snow, the alliums seem to be a bit delayed and the ranunculus are nowhere to be seen. One thing has been doing well are all the tulips, they’re huge.
I’m also loving the trees. The Acer (Maple) has finally started opening its leaves, the plum tree is covered in blossom, the ancient apple tree appears to have survived another winter and even my tiny pot bound cherry tree is doing it’s best. Bring it on summer!
