Spring after spring, daffodils never fail to delight...buttery golden, ethereal white, blush or just fresh, crisp, bright and cheerful yellow!

Spring is so powerful, in a gentle, sweet, fragile way...early bloomers: hellebore, shy pasque in pink, earliest blooming tulip in bud, first daff to bloom, crocus in pearly white, hyacinth fat with promise.

Tender New Leaves

Much as I applaud spring blooms, emerging new foliage is just as thrilling!  Coral bells are a delightful example.  The tender new leaves arise in glistening newness – demonstrated above by glossy cinnamon that fades to amber, fresh ruffled green, perfect crisp form in maroon, and lustrous purple-black.  If your coral bells are aging or have ‘lifted’ over the winter so that the crowns are exposed, then your foliage is probably shrinking.  Give them new life by topping up the soil around the crowns, or digging the plant to divide and re-plant – either way the way the crowns should be at ground level.  Read more about coral bells (Heuchera) by clicking here.

'Rosebuds' Of Sedum

Sometimes it is the tiny that can be thrilling!  If you have sedum in the garden, don’t miss their exquisite sprouting stage – the dainty new growth resembles miniature rosebuds, in a range of vibrant colours from deep burgundy to lime green depending on the variety.  Read more about sedum ‘rosebuds’ by clicking here.
