    At last, things are coming to life. A couple of things have died over the winter but other different plants are popping up everywhere and what a cheery sight :D. Would love to see your gardens throughout the seasons so feel free to add photos.

    Looks lovely. I only have crocuses in flower at the moment but as it's pouring with rain at the moment I don't think a photo of them would look very good. I keep seeing daffodils in flower everywhere but mine have not come out yet. I only put them in last year, would that make any difference?

    Many, many years ago I bought two hellebore plants, one a dark red and the other a white Christmas rose. Now Spring is a sea of many different patterns. Pics are of part of the sea and some of my favourites.

    Thank you, I love them. They cost lots to buy because they take a couple/few years to reach flowering size. I just let them do their own thing and I have loads to take to shows on our welfare stall. I could send you some smaller ones that should flower next year. Pm me if you would like me to see if they will survive the post. I have so many so nothing will be lost if they don't make it.

    Thanks for the offer @QOTN but I don't think I've got room for anymore plants and nearly all my garden is in the sun so I'll just enjoy watching yours. :)

    My wallflower is completely out now and smells lovely.

    Offer is open to you if you pm me your address. No paypal but I can just about afford the postage. Bear in mind I am not a professional plant mailing service but hopefully they should survive.
