Stood on the patio is a planter and these crocus have appeared in it. We didn't set them and so I can only assume that they have self set. They are a beautiful purple striped variety and there are no more like this anywhere in the garden.
Regular readers of my blog will know that in our family on Ash Wednesday we traditionally eat 'Bedfordshire Donuts'. The job of making the donuts falls to my Mum and so today a plate of delicious freshly cooked donuts were delivered to us which we enjoyed during the day.
Today was Shrove Tuesday so this evening pancakes were cooked and eaten with traditional lemon and sugar.
We have a section of the garden near the greenhouse where any indoor pots of spring flowering bulbs, that have finished flowering, are planted - daffodils, hyacinths, etc .. These 'Tet-a-Tete' dwarf Narcissus bought a couple of years ago and then transferred to the garden are now flowering.
