What’s Flowering in March?

It looks like that short lived bit of sun here in Manchester has turned into our typical regional weather. Rain, cloud and wind.

But, on the plus side- many of the plants we have in our gardens are fully in bloom and lapping up the wet weather, and today I wanted to share with you the plants which are flowering in my garden right now…

Mimosa (acacia)

This is an incredibly bee friendly plant which thrives at this time of year

Although only a few are peaking their heads up right now, in a couple of weeks my flowerbeds will be a sea of blue and pink!

Osmanthus Delavayi

We planted this 12 years ago in memory of our beautiful dog- Lara. She died on the 26th March and this always flowers exactly on the day.

LOTS OF DAFFODILS!

(although insects have gotten to some of them)
