New bulbs are coming up

Chiondoxia and Scillia:

My labels seem to indicate they are the same or very similar in flower type. I have blue, white and pink.

Dog Tooth Violets:

Unsure of their colour until they open. Finally Snake's Head Fritillary:

A bit blurred as they were wafting in the breeze. Hopefully, they will opensoon and I shall be able to see what their colours are as well.

DB took a snap of me applying white spirit to woolly aphids on some of my apple trees. They started on one and are migrating around. Painting them with white spirit seems to either kill them off or at least weaken them:





  1. Such a lovely start to spring.

    God bless.

  2. I have just one little clump of scillas and I love them so much. A beautiful blue.
