February Bulbs

The dry bright weather of the past few days has been a welcome change from the dull, wet weeks that preceded them. One can't say that spring has arrived, but hopefully it is a presage of what is to come.

The garden is not exactly a rash of colour but the various bulbs are putting on a reasonable show. As well as snowdrops and crocuses I have espied four or five daffodils which have decided to get a head start on their brethren and have come into bloom. One or two hellebores (aka Lenten Roses) must also think that Easter is early this year.
If the dry weather continues I might be tempted to prepare the onion bed in anticipation of a late March planting of sets. By then it technically will be Spring.
