Spring Flowers (2)

Anemone and Cyclamen 
It had been a couple of weeks since we’d last been down to the winter garden at Dunham Massey. The sun was shining. It was Sue’s birthday. SaHH (Stay at Home Hazel) was progressing well with her current assignment.

No excuse not to visit the garden, then. And here’s some of what we saw; the winter flowers (the identities of which we didn’t note) are coming on a treat now it has warmed up a bit. It was also good to see bees being very numerous and active in some of the flower beds.

The gardeners keep these birch trees nice and clean to match the Snowdrops

And in our garden the blackbirds are singing - are they in love?  The wood pigeons certainly are.
