Realised that I haven't updated the "Garden Today" feature for nearly three months. Whilst we were away in India, we had the only severe frost of the year which killed all the last remaining surviving annuals from last year.
Anyway, the bulbs are just coming into flower. Today was a "Sun and Showers" sort of day. Lots to do in the garden...

Back of the house in one of the sunshine periods
Most of the cherry trees are out
Back wall
Heather and daffodils in the pots on the patio
Verburnium in front garden
Many of the early daffodils are out
The day lilies are sprouting well. What a contrast to last year....
..when they were eaten daily by the deer. So far, the massive expense on the deer proof fence and automated gates seems to have been worth it.
