Before we officially welcome spring with open arms (have we ever been more ready for a new season? 😴😍) I thought I’d share what I’ve been up to this winter in my own little garden.
Ours is a new-build garden and started out with nothing but a whole lot of turf last August. Since then I’ve been making some flower beds – gradually breaking up the heavy clay – and planting quite a few perennials, as well as shrubs which will eventually bring us plenty of winter colour.
Since January I’ve made an effort to take a photo (almost) every day to document what these new plants look like through the fairly mild winter weather. Below are some of my favourites…
Since these photos were taken I’ve been focusing on winter bulbs which have been bravely popping up amidst snow and frost throughout January and into February…
I’m so much looking forward to watching the daffodils and tulips beginning to bloom in the coming weeks.
What are your favourite plants for winter colour – and beloved winter or spring bulbs? Comment below or use the tag #camflowerjourn on social media 🌷 I hope that over time we’ll gather a friendly bunch of readers who’ll share some of their moments of joy in the garden via the Journal.
Until next time,
