    Spring certainly has arrived at your garden, BigBilly. The flowers are gorgeous. The purple helibore is very pretty & isn't familiar to me. Love the colours of your daffodils. They are so bright & cheerful. :D

    Many thanks for posting them. Looks like it had been raining, too. :lol3:

    Thanks Joy and Glad, Little bits of colour starting to pop up.
    Have been very busy with changes to the gardens and sowing, also our son next door has been given a 16ft by 8 foot metal greenhouse so have been helping him with the footings for it, Hope to get pics soon to post.
    Had a bit of rain but a sharp frost last night.

    Nature certainly believes spring has, well & truly, arrived in your garden, BigBilly. :bravo: The flowers are looking so colourful. You sure have been busy in your conservatory & have so many plants well on their way. Good stuff!! The frogs have been busy as well & that is a great shot of their spawn, by the way. Love the little vole too.

    Thanks for posting these great pics, BB.

    Lovely flowers BB. You are certainly ahead of things judging by your conservatory pics. I enjoyed very much catching up on your garden, there is so much to see already!. It was great to see the frogs eggs on the water, I haven't seen that in years. :cool3: :thanks: and :luck: for this years planting.

    Your flower garden layout is looking so good, BigBilly. You certainly have been busy. Are the main flowers, in the wonderful cattle trough planter, primroses?? They are so bright & cheerful. The grape hyacinths are so pretty, too. Congrats on your first tulip flower. It is such a beautiful colour. Love it.

    What a fantastic shot of the bird thoroughly enjoying itself in your birdbath, BigBilly. It is delightful & made me smile. :D The hyacinths & tulips are so pretty & you do have a lovely bright display of the tulips. Have never heard of skunk cabbage. It certainly is an unusual looking plant & flower. I like unusual. :lol3: Does it smell as its name implies??

    Many thanks for posting these wonderful images, BB. :D

    I revisited this thread and want to comment on the vole picture. Are they harmless little creatures or do they do damage like a mole does?

    Not aware of the vole doing any damage in the garden Glad, but then ours have quite a good lifestyle , free food and a secure roof over their heads as they live under the slabs of the bird
    feeders and also in the dry stone stone walls round the garden.

    What wonderful flowers, BigBilly. :love: They will give your flower garden a lovely head start. So the spidery looking flower is a geranium?? Have never seen one like that before. It is fantastic as are the others. The osteospermum looks really cute & your lobelia is doing very well. I tried to grow it here but it didn't last too well as it was too hot for it, I think. White bluebells!?!? Who'd have thought. :lol: They are gorgeous & must look great in your flower garden.

    Thank you again, BB, for posting these beautiful images. :photos:

    What a gorgeous colour the rhododendron is, BigBilly. It is absolutely beautiful. That is definitely saxifrage, too, not that I am familiar with it, of course, but did let Mr Google do some searching & found a pic of it which was almost identical to your image. It looks to be a really attractive ground cover plant. Love the daisies & stocks. They are so English country gardenish, if you know what I mean. I'll bet you are pleased to see the ferns in action, growing & unfurling their new fronds.

    Do hope spring continues like this for you & your garden & that the unpredictable weather has disappeared. Thank you, BB, for posting these lovely images of some of your amazing collection of flowers.
