Rarely does a day go past at this time of year without discovering one or two surprises in our garden - there's nothing better to lift your spirits but to stumble upon another of your favorite flowers out again after waiting all those months since last year. These double snowdrops were brought from my first home in Bristol and seem to be quite content in our Brittany garden!
Another of my favorites are the dear little Iris reticulata - seen here along with some deep purple crocus.
Another find today was that our lovely Camelia has come into flower too - we inherited this with our house so am usure as to it's variety but is stunning and adds much needed colour to our garden for a good many weeks! The blue tits love this bush in particular as it's a good place of refuge when feeding at the bird table!
