Spring can't be far away now

I've been gardening at my MIL's on this first day of March and it's been lovely and sunny, I hope this is the start of better weather.  She's got quite a lot of flowers in bloom -

                                          miniature daffodils

                                          and an iris with some aconites

and back home in our little woodland, a patch of violets

I'm sure it was only a couple of years ago that I transplanted a violet I found in the lawn and  it's really spread.  It can't be to the rabbits taste!  


  1. It's so pretty! Nothing much happening in our garden yet apart from some straggly Crocuses. xxx

  2. Lovely Spring flowers, I have never grown Crocuses, would like to try them and I just love Hellebores. I read somewhere that they hang their heads in shame as every part of them is poisonous.......

    Autumn is officially here and it's trackies and long sleeves in the morning now, but a beautiful blue sky sunshiney day to follow.

  3. Wow, they're early! We have snowdrops and crocuses here but nothing else has peeked out just yet. Can't wait for the daffs!

  4. I love helibores, mine seem to have disapeared this year! Your MIL has a very pretty spring garden

  5. I adore sweet violets..they are my favourite, favourite spring flowers...
