Growth and colour at last!

And they're off....

It’s been a long time coming, but finally, after the longest coldest, and maybe driest spring for ages, we’ve had a decent period of warm and wet weather, and stuff is growing at last.

Activity on the nursery has concentrated our minds away from the garden for the last few weeks, so it was almost a surprise to walk through the garden last evening, and see how much it’s changed.

It’s still some way off its blousy mid-summer best of course, but it’s reassuring to see the seasonal progression somewhere near on-track, and to be able to look forward to the glories still to come.

The planting in the foreground is our “just-outside-the-back-door” potager, with herbs, garlic, variegated yellow rocket, and just getting their heads into shot, blueberries (this year we have enviromesh ready to confound the blackbirds!).

Off in the distant right of the shot you can just about make out the lozenge borders (still unplanted) with our new, and growing very nicely, yew hedge down the middle.
