A mild spell in late February encouraged a few more flowers to appear, bringing a little more colour into the garden.
This year I have several new plants in the garden. Most were chosen for the purpose of attracting bees and butterflies and to add colour and variety. A few new plants appeared all by themselves and are interesting new additions. Some have come from packets of mixed wildflower or cottage garden seeds which I scattered last year and had no idea what would appear!
Along with photographs of new plants I have included more pictures of some of my favourites.
