Last Monday, I talked about March being noted for its yellow and its onset has indeed started here at VP Gardens. It's a dull day here, but the daffodils manage effortlessly to cheer up the gloom.
Walking around the garden this morning, I noted how much better the more dainty daffodils looked compared with their larger, more blowsy cousins. They're also less likely to be felled by the fickle winds of March. The blackthorn blossom is about to burst too - we may yet have another go at winter.
I'm meeting up with Victoria later to go round the Abbey Gardens which open for the NGS today. As the house is up for sale, this year might be the last opportunity for us to visit. She also has some spare Iris 'Katherine Hodgkin', which she is kindly giving to me - hurray.
I can't think of a better thing to do for Blooms Day than to meet up with a garden blogging buddy :)
Garden Bloggers' Blooms Day is hosted by Carol at May Dreams Gardens.
