Through the Garden Gate February 2018
Hurrah! There are signs of Spring emerging again, but not sadly in our garden with such abundance as this. It is definitely something to strive for, isn't it fantastic?
Back to reality our spring border under the hazels, isn't quite as colourful, but it is now in it's third year and each year it gets better. It is good to look out from the conservatory windows.
I was hoping to have more flowers to show you this month, and although our solar panels have surprisingly recorded more sunshine hours in February compared with the past two years, it still feels that there was more plants appearing this time last year. Has anyone noticed this too?
Some of the snowdrops are still in flower.
I bought a pack of six hellebores from Lidl in the Autumn to plant in a pot in the front garden. The variety of the flower colours have been a lovely surprise, and I really love this soft pinky shade. They will be a good addition to the Spring border later in the year.
The rest of the flower borders are full of fresh new green growth and the vegetable and cutting borders are still quite empty.
So I have an extra Garden Gate to wander through this month.

The snowdrops and the cream hellebore made a lovely combination.
