February 2016 garden diary

Hellebores – their bright and varied colours, both deep and pastel shades, have warmed our hearts throughout this dreary month






Lambs Ears Stachys byzantina – not looking quite so furry on a cold, damp morning

Raking out the moss – then feed the grass in April and May to get a good sward in the summer …

Tom Thumb miniature daffodils

Visitor … Green Woodpecker – long, thick beak that it drives hard into the ground and seems to probe around (maybe with its tongue?); sometimes hangs about for more than an hour, slowly moving across the lawn; interesting to look at the holes it’s made after it flies off! Lesser Spotted Woodpecker also comes now and again but less frequently (do you want to say it or shall I? Ok, it’s spotted less often …)
