I know for sure that spring has sprung in the garden when the cherry blossom appears. This cherry tree dominates my garden and much of the planting has to be done to take into account its shade.
I’ve underplanted it with woodland plants, including this lovely dark hellebore.
The kerria japonica is just about showing itself, as is the bergenia. The camellia is finally flowering too!
We have lots of daffs, crocus and a few early tulips now, so I’ve been out cutting back last year’s dead growth on the perennials so that I can see the spring flowers popping up.
Looking forward to the warmer weather now!
