Spring in the Garden

0 comment

In the last week or so, I can definitely feel spring in the air. Although we now have flowers throughout the whole year, the garden looks best in spring – that’s when most of them are out. The ornamental red currants and cherry, the daffodils, spirea, skimmia, wisteria, bergenia, clematis and so on. Some plants, like the skimmia and red currant are just beginning to open and the bees are returning to the garden in droves.

There are still a few weeks before the flowers really appear en masse but even now, I get a sense of excitement that the garden has finally woken up and that growth is accelerating to the point where even daily changes seem to be noticeable.

Each year the garden looks better and better as it emerges from the winter and with all the work that was done and all the plants that were put in, I can’t wait to experience it all this season.

I'm Sunil Patel, this is me. I created the Garden at 13 Broom Acres and I open it to visitors. I also bake and write blog posts giving a "behind the scenes" look into what it's like to maintain such a garden.

Visit the blog, then come and visit the garden. We can have a good sit-down, a jolly chinwag and a relaxing cup of tea with a sinfully generous slice of home made cake.
