Trying to be  useful, Anne!! :P
 I think my favourites are  the  self sown celandines ( which I'm not  normally  too keen on!) and  the  truly lovely  combo of the  Primroses with the  anemones. Soooo pretty!  Thank you!

It,s sunny and warm here today so I,ve been sitting in the back garden with a cup of tea and watching the wildlife. Just like last year a frost has affected the new leaves on the Pieris. Primula farinosa is in flower. Clematis armandii has a lovely scent. The front "lawn" has fritillary,s and primroses in flower. Several butterflies have been seen, including this peacock which stopped to sunbath. Among the birds were chaffinch, goldfinch, sparrow hawk and buzzard.

An extraordinary garden!

Perhaps St. François de Paule after an unsuccessful crossing?

My Stachyurus Joy Forever is fully out now. There are more flowers on the left hand side - the ferocious February gales blew lots of the buds from the right hand, exposed side. Still super anyway!

And yet again the file is too big to post....

Carolyn, we  are  finding  our  connections are  slow these  days  so perhaps that is a  factor  in loading  your  images. May  just  be  easier to resize them yourself  960 pixels  wide  usually  works -  or  use  the  old resizing system.
Lots  of  things are  not  as they could- or  should  be  right now !

Well,  yes!!   I find that  the  more  natural ( self-sowing )  combos  arising in our  garden are  the  ones  which give the  most  pleasure  these days  !

Very nice to see so much color from everyone's gardens; still a bit behind here.
Especially the yellow/blue combinations are gorgeous!
