Better late than never...

At last some of our spring crocus have emerged... and, to date, they haven't had all their petals nibbled...


We have also made the effort and pruned the Pampas Grass....


The ride-on mower has been serviced, apart from fitting a new filter...

Spring is on the way...  or at least it's starting to look and feel a little less like winter out there!

My crocus have not even got a bud on them yet! We have just shorn our pampas but ours is huge and we had to borrow a trailer to cart it all to the dump. I love them most of the time but not when they need tidying up!! We still have to service our ride on mower! Diane

I have never seen a Pampas Grass looking so smart!... most people just seem to hack at them to reduce their size... the real, pampas, way to deal with them is to set fire to them... probably spectacular... but very,very messy. Our Croci are out... some of the frost hit pansies have flowers and the pussy willow is in full puss-mode... Spring is trying valiantly to go 'Sproing!!'

I was only wondering what to do with our huge pampas grass clump yesterday... now I know!

I love crocuses, especially the bright yellow ones. (And the deep purple ones.)
I find them much more pleasing than snowdrops which, by their very whiteness, seem to say "winter isn't over yet". Crocuses and daffodils with their joyful brightness just scream of spring sunshine.

......I think I'll dig out my old fifth form exercise book and go and write a poem now...........not really !!
