A good walk over the Bowland Fells to blow away the cobwebs.... Sun.28th March 2010.
Sunday March 28th 2010
I don't know about other parts of the country but up here in the Lancashire Pennines Spring is frustratingly slow to gather pace after our colder than average winter.Whether it's because I'm getting older and more impatient and longing for some warm sun on my back I'm not sure ,but I'll bring my Blog up to date about the progress of my garden.
The Snowdrops are finishing
The miniature Daffs are opening
A hungry Hedgehog just wakened from hibernation (suprisingly small to have survived the winter)
My resident Ducks are still around
A favourite of mine around the top pond... the Golden Saxifrage.
The first Primroses are opening
In the Alpine Scree Garden some of the early alpines are already in flower
The Purple Saxifrage is at it's best.
It will be about 2 weeks before this beautiful alpine comes into flower
on the cliffs of Phen-y-ghent in the Pennines.
