Finally the snowdrops are appearing. After having the coldest March on record for 100 years I think the worst is over. I removed the layer of leaves that covered the garden so I could appreciate the snowdrops all the better.
The winter was beautiful with a layer of white snow covering the garden debris and making everything look sparkly and new. But once we reach the brown stage of spring I can't hlep being impatient for the flowers of Spring. I even made an urn with artificial flowers.
Now is a good time to rake the garden. The ground is still frozen and you don't damage the tender plants.
