Happy Spring Equinox

Happy first day of spring! Festive touches of the approaching season have been spotted in our garden during the last week:

The crocus are always the first happy signs of spring. This year they were just a bit later than usual. This was only the second time since Ellie was born that her birthday was not the first day that we had crocus blooming in our year. Here, they are joined by a bright yellow dwarf iris.

I love the foliage in the garden.

The hens and chicks are hardy, abundant and welcoming.

And of course, we will watch the tulips closely. Two years ago I put in 200 bulbs - when they are in bloom it is glorious!
