It’s time to check the garden(patio variety) after the winter – which was reasonably kind in this part of the UK. There were some wonderful little surprises! I love nature, even if it’s in pots.
I cut this Violet right back, it seemed like it wouldn’t survive…Mother Nature thought differently.
These tiny little purple/yellow violas have popped up in different pots – they’re cute! And a nice surprise, as I certainly didn’t plant them. They were courtesy of the natural popping of seed pods, or spread with the help of birds’ natural processes 😉
This pot of strawberries is very leafy…is that a good sign for many fruits to come?
The sage is starting to show signs of new growth, although the thyme behind it not so much.
I didn’t think the Lily of the Valley would do anything – lots of green foliage evident – but on closer inspection, there are tiny little flower buds just peeping out.
And just because I love it:
I’m now on the look-out for two fuchsias – I bought one last year and it has not survived. It also seems the pot of mint has not survived…didn’t think it was possible to kill mint?!!
