If like me you have been eagerly awaiting for Spring to arrive it is a complete joy every day when the sun shines and all those lovely signs of Spring appear.  Daffodils are still flourishing and tulips are poking through and in readiness to take over.

We planted pots with Helibores in the Autumn and filled in with  tulips giving a lovely Autumn Winter transition to Spring.

May blossom is now coming through, the birds are nesting and, best of all, lambing is in full flow – lots of cute lambs in the surrounding fields.

Ground prep started some weeks ago with organic compost and grit being dug into heavy clay soil to break it down and mulching of the flower beds and particularly roses to give them a real good start.

Spring is definitely my favourite time of year!
