The magnificent Electric Blue Crocus.These lovely flowers fill me with hope that the winter is drawing to an end.The weekend saw the clocks go forward to British Summer Time. Brrrrr, someone tell the weather!
I had a little re potting session.These Box ball plants are now in these bigger pots.Once they grow on a bit I will shape them.I quite like the organised form of clipped shapes.It might be as you get older you like solid structures in the garden.I keep waiting for Asda to drop its Buxus ball prices but they don't.
The leaves are gloriously emerald and full of vitality.They caught the sun Saturday when I took the photos.I will shape them into a round shape.I toyed with the idea of a wire cage to grow Buxus through into shapes like triangles,balls,spirals,or animal shapes.A Cat or a Peacock?
The greenhouse has been warmed for the past two nights with a paraffin heater.The seedlings are starting to germinate in earnest.The only problem has been the Tomatoes that look sickly.I have bought a second pack of Tomato seeds from B&Q (where i got the paraffin) in case the first lot fail.
The Daffodils remain tightly shut,waiting for the warmth of Spring to lull them into flowering.The Tulips are also waiting for the sunshine.
