Splash of Colour - February

I was determined to get into the garden over the weekend and I actually managed to find quite a bit of colour there.
Primroses, rhubarb shoots, a cheery pansy, cornus elegantissima, self seeded hellebore, winter flowering honeysuckle (has to smelt to be really appreciated!), self seeded hellebore bud, snowdrop buds (so nearly there) and sedum buds.  

The snowdrops (lovely double ones) appeared last year after I'd removed some paving slabs from that area - goodness knows how long they'd been buried.  The honeysuckle was in flower when I moved in, which is nearly 3 years ago, gosh how time flies!

There are plenty more blogs with splashes of colour, a list can be found on Silverpebble's blog and on the flickr group page.

Soon be spring - so much to look forward to.

I have my splash of colour posted today as well, indoors as opposed to your outdoors... one day I'll learn how to do the mosaic effect with photos... maybe.

There's so much going on in your garden already. I can't really say the same for mine, not a lot of colour there at all.

Oh wow - I'll have to stop and look at my own garden instead of rushing head-down to see to the hens!!

Hi Su
It is amazing what is going on in the garden when you take time to look.
There is indeed so much to look forward to.

Your garden must be lovely, my garden has very little in it at the moment of any interest. Thank you for your comment on my blog.

It's looking like spring already! Oh for one of those days when you can go in the garden and feel the sun on your back!

Wow, you certainly have a lot of colour in your garden. Mine is still looking rather dull!
