Cottage Garden - 20 March 2012
I always look forward to a wonderful burst of vibrant yellow as the first daffodils appear in my tiny 'woodland garden'. As of this morning there are a bank of them standing tall and straight with healthy green buds ready to unfurl when the time is just right. In this part of Suffolk the first daffodils tend to properly flower on or around 20 March which is officially the first day of Spring so very good timing in fact ... have the first daffodils bloomed in your neck of the woods yet?
It wasn't really planned in any way (I'm not that organised and have no idea of their names) but I seem to have various varieties flowering at different times, with the one below showing its pretty face well into May. Isn't it gorgeous!

So alas, no daffodils here just yet but still going strong are the snowdrops, together with purple, yellow and white crocuses which all look very, very pretty indeed.
(Oops I tried to upload some photos from this morning but my camera is misbehaving and as I wanted to get this post published before going out I have decided to just go with the daffy pics only - sorry)
Happy St David's Day!
