Winter Garden

I really love winter gardens. I am not really a gardener at all, but I love that the bulbs in my garden have sprouted green leaves that are by now long and luscious, and in some cases have already flowered. Last year was the first year we planted bulbs...



The garden was full of colour. I hope this year it is just as colourful, but so far, other than one red and one pink anemone, they have all been purple...





This one is white, but still with the purple...



I can't wait for the ranunculi to flower. Hopefully there will be some more variety with those. The snowflakes are just starting to flower as has the muscari. There are irises, daffodils and scilla to come.

We have a narrow border next to our driveway. In that we planted jonquils, ixias, babiana, sparaxis, spring star and freesias. The jonquils have been beautiful so far.And I have planted some tulips this year to see if I can succeed with getting some to flower. They are growing really well, so fingers crossed.
