I’m not really sure I like daffodils, they get a bit overwhelming when every hedge is full of them – I prefer the subtle prettyness of the Primrose.
But.. Mole Valley Farmers did have a good deal on Daffodil bulbs last year, so we got 2 sacks and planted the lot. After first poking up through the grass early in February the Daffodils are now in full flower – the splash of yellow across the garden is lovely. Maybe I do like Daffodils.

Spring is coming !

It’s winter at the barn, the trees are bare, the ground is cold and wet. The rain was relentless through January.

But, at the start of February the days are noticeably lengthening, the weather has changed to cold and clear. Spring is on the way !

The thing I like about this time of year is that the nice days feel special, a hint of things to come.

We’ve been busy planting the garden. Hundreds of daffodil bulbs went in during the Autumn, and now they’re all starting to come up.
