Here are 3 Tete a tete daffodils, mahonia flowers, primroses, ceanothus foliage, lavender foliage and golden Corydalis 'Berry Exciting' foliage.
The colour belies the weather which has been appalling. You can see the rain in this picture. On Sunday, when I took this, we had by turn windy, hail storms, torrential rain and the odd sunny spell.
I've managed to get outside this week by picking my moments and focusing on a task for that window.

Here is a quick look at the broad beans sown a few weeks ago, see here. The grew away well and we kept them on a hanging shelf away from pests.
Also a good way of creating more shelf space at this time of year. This is filled with tomatoes in the summer. Underneath, just now, is Cavolo Nero, rocket, newly potted dahlia tubers, and geranium and alstromeria roots, which I bought mail order, and are just shooting.
|This is the lovely root system of the bean.|
Here they are planted in the poly tunnel border. They look so pristine, so far untouched slugs, bean thrips, chocolate spot or mice! It's only a matter of time.
