Well, that saying and the reverse of it in relation to March weather always seems to hold true and this year was no exception. As I write this, the weather is benign in the garden; a lot different to the start of the month. The cover picture is of Scilla siberica, in among Namurian rock.
The two pictures above show Berberis darwinii and Drimys winterii, both putting on a show for the whole month.
And then, these two pictures show Sebaea thomasii “Bychan” and Pieris “Forest Flame” with Chionodoxa “Glory of the Snow”.

This part of the pond had been invaded by Horsetail last summer so a digger was brought in to remove the pondside soil with unfortunately all its riparian plants. Hopefully the remains of some of the plants will surface about the water this summer. Below is one of them, Butterbur in a plastic tray. The flowers always arrive before the leaves.
