Good morning. What a beautiful morning it is again. The weather here is breaking records and filling us with a joie de vie. Gardeners are filling their boots and quite literally filling their boots with garden jobs and its debris at a time when, last year, we had not even begun the Winter clear up. So far, so good.

I am enjoying seeing bumblebees on the Viburnum bodnantense and hearing skylarks in the fields. Daffodils, snowdrops, primroses, crocus and hellebores are flowering, injecting pings or dots of colour around and about. It is Monday which means I need to bring something in from the garden to enjoy at close quarters and share with you and Cathy

Tiny black petals edged in gold are I believe Primula Silver Lace. These are an eye catching favourite of mine as I adore the tiny black petals so smart, so chic.

The crocus may be white but the purple markings on the outer petals are divine.

The pot is Japanese, purchased at Darsham Nurseries.

Have a great week and thanks for reading. D.
