What a difference a few days makes at this time of the year. Particularly if you get a little sunshine. As the second in a series of mainly image based posts to record the progress of the spring bulb emergence at Gelli Uchaf, as we open as a NGS snowdrop festival garden, this follows on from my previous post.
The snowdrops are in full swing now and at last we have a few daffodils out, just in time for St. David’s day on March 1st (Narcissus ‘Rjinveld’s Early Sensation’), but weeks later than the last 2 much colder winters.
Many more crocus are emerging all the time, and are being joined by early scillas. The Cyclamen coum are hanging on in there, the scent of Daphne bholua fills the air, the Canada geese have returned, the pied wagtails have started ridge bobbing, the frogs have spawned, the turkeys are laying.
And snow is forecast overnight.
