Spring Starts...

Spring gardens are my favourite!  I planted almost a thousand bulbs each year in my 46 Orchard Crescent garden, and kept with the tradition in my new garden in Grimsby last fall.  Around the Maple tree out front was a wonderful show of Snow Drops from March through to April.  Now the Pushkinias and Scillas are starting to bloom in their pretty blues. I'd like to have my own March Bank, after the famous hillside of spring colour at Winterthur, just south of Philadelphia.  I saw it this past spring and was awed by the grand scale of the planting and the brilliant results. 

Here's a painter's version done last week.
