At Last - Spring!

Wandering round the garden wondering where to start after this winters` devastation, I became aware that the spring flowers were all trying their best already so I abandoned the trowel in favour of the camera!

Hi Marion, Thanks so much for sharing your garden. Thoroughly enjoyed the tour - made me a little homesick (I've been in New Zealand 6 years) I could almost smell the spring air !! Thanks Chris

Cameras always beat trowels, Marion. Although I wouldn't recommend using a FinePix to do the weeding with. Great shots, thanks for sharing

Missed this, lovely blog, puts my garden and photo's to shame, I'm also envious of the vaiegated quince and butterburr and the fact living where you do your garden at this stage is where mine is now a month later.
