Grape hyacinth planter | Growing SpacesI’m definitely starting to feel like I can see Spring finally approaching, and as I notice the bulbs start to push up through the earth in the garden, I’ve also noticed how neglected our garden is. We’re itching to get back out there to tidy up after Winter and start planning what changes we might make this year.

For now, I’m going to enjoy watching Spring arrive and celebrate when the blossom starts to appear. I planted up some grape hyacinths (a favourite of mine) in a terracotta bowl planter from Homebase last weekend, and they now greet me by our front door as I come and go. I love their soft blue flowers and they remind me of my parents’ garden, which is always full of colour in Spring.

    I’m itching to get into the garden too. I have a brand new canvas of a garden to create 🙂

    So pretty – reminds me it is time to buy some snowdrops in the green in the hope they’ll survive better than the bulbs the squirrels enjoyed over the winter
