Spring has sprung up in Yorkshire. My Dad’s always been a gardener. Every time we visit there is something interesting to see.
These hellebores don’t get much attention but do well in this shady spot.
He usually grows shorter daffodils because of the wind blowing across the Vale of York knocks the taller ones over.
hyacinth chionodoxa (Dad put me right) bringing a bit of colour in his front garden. Apparently, the bees love it on a warmer day, they get lots of pollen from them.
The twisted hazel was planted for my Mum. She was into flower arranging. This summer we hacked it back and it is looking very sculptural now.
I love this pot in the greenhouse
Last but not least, he likes alpines and has 5 species tulips in an outdoor alpine bed. This is Tulipca humilis violiacea Black base.
