Well if you are in the UK you have to admit today was one of those perfect spring days we might remember from our younger days. There is something about sunlight shining through leafless trees that shouts Springtime in the garden to me. So I spent a few hours tidying, pruning, planting and butterfly chasing this afternoon. This perfect Orange Tip butterfly eventually co-operated and posed prettily on a daffodil for me.
Everything is bursting into life plant-wise (including the weeds of course) and in just a week the ground I had cleared of dead stuff and weeds is disappearing under re-emerging perennials and new weed seedlings. Luckily in this lovely patch of my biggest flower bed the spring flowers are crowding out - or at least hiding - those "plants in the wrong place".
And before the sun disappeared completely it threw these lovely rainbows on my wall by shining through the old chandelier drops I have hanging in the window.
