The mild temperatures of recent weeks have encouraged a delightful display of anemones both in patio pots and in the borders.
The photographs included in this post and the next were taken in my garden four days ago (4 March) and provide a colourful prelude to the season ahead.
In Spring, the orchards of Ibiza are carpeted with wild flowers.
Yesterday was a warm, sunny day – we have had several recently. The flowers responded appropriately. It was a joy to be in England now that April’s here!
Even the fish in the pond basked in the sunshine!
One of the great joys in my garden at this time is seeing the rosemary and forsythia in bloom next to each other. I don’t find the individual flowers of either shrub particularly exciting but the combinations of colour and shape are stunning and uplifting.
