Scottish Spring Garden

Early April Garden

I took the photo above a couple of days ago when the weather was quite good. It’s of the rockery area outside my kitchen window. I plan to cover all of the earth with pebbles, in the hope of stopping too many weeds from germinating.

As you can see there’s quite a bit of colour in it at the moment, primulas, miniature daffodils, narcissus and the red flowers are dwarf tulips, they’re a nice splash of colour but the flower head is almost normal tulip size, it’s just the stem which is dwarfed, I’m not too sure if I like the effect.

Today it has rained most of the day and it seems like our weather is dipping back into winter instead of springing forward. I went out without having boots on for the first time this year, just an experiment which I won’t repeat soon as my ankles were freezing. I hope the weather warms up soon.

  1. Exactly as you said. Beam me up to float down into your garden. It’s coming along beautifully this spring. It’s looking so robust for early April.
    I know about weather setbacks. We had a most unusual day Monday. It snowed all day, the temperature never rising above 18 degrees F, and winds gusting near 40 mph. We only got about four inches of snow, and it will be gone soon, which is the good thing. (At least I got a good, wintry feel out of it!)

      • Judith,
        Thanks, the garden is coming on. It’s so sad that you didn’t have a good load of snow this winter though. I know how much people in the Highlands rely on good snow for the skiers and people who enjoy yomping around in snow, and it seems that your area is just the same. I hope the weather settles down and gets back to ‘normal’.
