spring in the garden
Everywhere around the village is turning yellow with daffodils. I have a few but I'm not very keen on yellow flowers so for the most part my spring garden is blue, white and pink.
All of the hyacinths had their first year in pots in the house before being planted out in the garden. After a few years the flowerheads are smaller and sometimes the plants disappear completely but each year a few more make it into the garden to contribute to the spring display.
Lastly, a summer clematis, almost in flower. I know I should be cutting this back. Monty Don definitely mentioned cutting back hard even though this year there would be flowers already - it seems a shame and I haven't got round to it yet!
