This is a very exciting moment in the garden. It’s spring! It all started with the snowdrops, and now the magnolia and daffodils are in full bloom and I love it!
Having been very expert for years at buying packets of seeds but never sowing them, I decided that this was the year to do much better, and actually got around to sowing seeds for Zinnias, marigolds, cosmos and foxgloves.
This morning I went to water the tiny pots and was rewarded with the first tiny shoots! A spring garden, miraculous in so many ways.
This season is very much one for building the excitement and anticipation of the summer to come. There is still time to introduce new ideas and to move or divide established plants. I have some additional pressure this year as it seems likely that the garden will be photographed at some point. Simultaneously exciting and scary!
I know that some of you are emerging from a long hot summer, and others are still under snow. I’d love to know what you have planned for the season to come, do leave a comment and let me know. Or take a look at this story of spring renewal I wrote a couple of years ago.
