Saturday 2 March 2013 – Dunham Winter Garden (5)

Nallo Lady reporting from the garden again.  What a contrast to last Saturday and what a difference some sunshine makes in bringing out the colours!

The hellebores have multiplied again, with buds ready to burst open:

The sun makes the white birch bark and snowdrops stand out against the brown soil:

Hellebores come in several varieties:

These snowdrops greet visitors on the entrance to the Winter Garden…

…and these stood isolated next to the path:

The robin was keeping his eyes on me, but pickings amongst the leaf litter must have been good because he didn’t fly off.

These small Pulmonaria (Lungwort – so named because the white-spotted leaves resemble lung tissue) seem rather lost and have suffered from spatters from the nearby sandy path:

After indulging myself amongst the flowers (and I wasn’t the only photographer!) it was back home for a rather late lunch! Finally it seems like Spring has arrived.
