The 'Delargo Towers' Garden - February

February has been a bitter month with hard frost rain and strong winds. We were very pleased to spend part of it in Spain. here's a quick tour of what brightened our homecoming and tempted us out in to the garden.

The Narcissus 'Tete-a-Tete' have done well and look fab on their third year of flowering. Feeding after the flowers fade seems to be the trick.

Viola Morpho - looking a little tatty. They have looked great but we didn't get out and take many photos this month

Roll on March and the equinox and to getting some seedlings out of the kitchen and into the garden



  1. Spring's a bit late in arriving, it seems - but don't tell the bulbs; they're doing a great job of brightening up even the gloomiest days... Jx

  2. Beautiful!

    In the one tiny patch of green I see through my snow-filled yard, I've spotted two crocus buds.

  3. Thank you Mistress.
    Your spring must be even further behind than ours xxx but the joy of a flower breaking through the snow tells you that the evil grip of Winter has lost and your Spring will arrive with all its delights.
