The Gardens of Delargo Towers - March

Here we are again me dears with another month all but gone. March didn't come 'in like a lion' and seems not to be going 'out like a lamb'. We have had a mixed bag of weather though, warm sunny spring like days early on and hail and icy east winds towards the end. However things are on the move in the garden.

This species tulip started the month of to a good start.

pure joy.

Mean while the window boxes are looking fab too.

Last year we were so pleased that the Virginian stock had self seeded in the paving. This year it has done it again and looks even better.

the border is in a bit of a betwixt and between stage now that the early dafs have finished.

and our one and only surviving Hollyhock is still hanging on in its drain. Fingers crossed it might flower this year.

In the 'court yard garden' things are coming to life too.

Alistair's narcissus has managed to flower again.

as have his Wood Anemones.

Every thing over wintering in the pots are now in growth;

The cuttings have been potted on;

The pear tree is breaking bud;

Some of the Summer bulbs are up;

and with a little luck with the weather we might get some after work 'wine time' in the garden again.

P.S. In case you were wondering where Doncaster Donny was. He went of in a huff earlier but he is there in Night Garden somewhere.
