New shoots area growing on shrubs reminding us that the garden is waking up.
In the next few weeks we can look forward to getting in the garden to do a tidy up.
Grasses can be cut back.
Seed heads can be removed.
Dead parts of perennials can also go.
Take time to notice the young growth of the tulips and other bulbs.
This will give you an uplifting feeling after all the bad weather.
Of course I am talking about the East Midlands.
I am aware that other parts of the country may not be ready for this yet.
Bad weather has been an awful feature in many parts of the country.
Let us hope that this will soon calm down.
