Looking for Spring
I have ventured into the garden for the first time this year. I stayed long enough to hang out the sheets and then I fled back inside.
It is not a pretty sight.
I have been to driftwood's blog, and I have admired her self-seeding poppies and her lush green lawn and her budding wallflowers, and I wanted to respond in kind. But I cannot. I have nothing. I tried to take a picture of my bank of spring bulbs (in reality a patch of land with a few straggling snowdrops at the edge of it) but the neighbour's cats had left, erm, presents which you probably don't want to look at.
(Where on earth are my spring bulbs? They are coming up all over the place around here except in my bl@@*y garden. What happened to them?)
Here is a patch I planted in Autumn with some lovely, jewel-coloured wallflowers. Wallflowers are such good value! They come into life in the dead of winter and are there ready to greet you when the sun comes out.
Yes. I'm wondering where the wallflowers went too.
(Oh, if any of you are passing Waterstones, check this out)
