IMG_2823Some veery skinny iris there, and a rosemary that may or may not have survived winter. The cat has his vantage point back, overlooking the street corner.

IMG_2818The bargain bin tulips are taking their time, but I love the grey-green of the leaves and the squeaky noise they make.

IMG_2825My old friend Mr Clematis and his new shoots.

IMG_2828Hellebores still provide the only pop of colour.

IMG_2827More bargain bin bulbs – mini hyacinths and tulips of unknown denomination.

IMG_2821This is the first time I’ve kept a lavender alive over winter.  True, the weather was mild, but I think maybe I just didn’t water the other ones enough.

Had better start thinking about what to sow now!
