Striving for a greener, more ethical life

Archive for the tag “spring plants”


The weather has been strange in London for the last two months. Mild, then cold, then extremely mild then cold again. The region is in official drought due to lack of rain and despite a bit of rainfal over the last two days it is not going to fill the reservoirs and aquifers. Despite the rain and grey skies of yesterday I ventured out into the garden as I could see some of my favorite spring plants in flower.

Winter Iris - has been flowering since January

Lungwort originally from my mother's garden

My garden is full of plants that remind me of special people – primroses from my father’s garden when he moved back to Scotland, herbs and bushes taken as cuttings from a myriad of people and lots of plants that I have bought at Charity fairs and fetes.
