After our first batch of runner bean seeds failed to germinate (we did use last year’s seeds), I bought new seeds and they are just now starting to raise their heads above the compost.
Our blackcurrant bushes certainly seem to have set the ladybirds going
This morning I spotted quite a few ladybirds on our two blackcurrant bushes.
This morning the apple blossom opened up . . .
It’s that time of the year when you have to look now or you’ll miss something in the garden.
Not a day goes by without some new development in the garden.
I am also surprised at how advanced the hydrangeas are already; their buds are quite big and I hope they don’t think that because the December snow and ice have gone that spring is just round the corner.

It’s a wonderful time of year when so many plants start to flower . . .
They’re flowering thick and fast . . .
