Our week away has seen big changes in the garden here. Rain has watered the parched soil and brought forth myriad bulbs and buds. A brief canter through the grounds today, to illustrate the progress of Spring.
The first of the snake-head fritillaries.
Early bumble bee.
My favourite daffodil, Tête a Tête. This compact variety loves to clump, and the resulting massed flower heads are glorious.
The first azalea to bloom has the soft blush of a wild dog rose.
The ever-present jack.
Snaky spires of Euphorbia.
Spring personified. Ty Isaf gets ready to display tens of thousands of daffodils.
