This is the view from the kitchen door. I like to walk round the garden in the morning when I first get up, it seems a good start to the day.
We've had little rain but plenty of cold winds over the last few weeks, so growth is slow and I've been loathe to do much work in the garden in these conditions.
The pond is in a bit of a mess.
But in spite of poor weather ferns are unfolding, flowers opening and the borders bushing out.
Ground elder grows well whatever the weather!
The tulips are almost over
and the barricades up in the veg garden.
Just waiting for some sunshine!
