This week I've seen daffodils, primroses/primula, forget-me-nots, hyacinths, hellebores, cerinthe, forsythia, aubretia and the first few camellias.
I found this Hyacinth growing under a bush. I must have planted it there last year but it was a rather lost so cutting was the answer. There are two more spikes which I'll cut when they've opened a little more.
I've added some of the gorgeous new leaf shoots which are so welcome and so beautiful.

Here is willow, spirea, cotoneaster and wigela. The spirea is my absolute favourite.
One of the fun things about moving to a new garden is finding out what is growing. Last spring daffodils popped up everywhere closely followed by white blubells (white bells?).
Here are a few with elaeagnus shoots. Last year the sides of a hedge were pruned but not the top. Another job to add the my very long list.
