Thought I would show you how the back border we created last year is doing. The new crab apple tree is in bloom:

The frittilaria and dog toothed violets have finished but lots more blooms are around. This will be followed by a few summer plants and ferns. Other than having to weed, it should look lovely once everything gets established and closes up the gaps.
My homegrown foxgloves are huge (too early to flower yet), will be interesting to see what colour they are.
