I usually favour the blue spectrum in my flower garden. But in spring it is different. Yellows predominate. In the summer yellow seems out of place, somehow, in spring it is highly appropriate for it goes so well with the fresh greens that show themselves. The new growth of the grass, the leaves unfurling and the plant growth emerging from the dark soil. The colours range from dark yellow/almost orange through to pale lemon.
The warm weather has brought everything along beautifully although I have had to water my containers more than I would have liked for this time of year. Alas, along with the new growth on my plants, comes the new growth of weeds
I have been tackling this patch of couch grass for over 25 years - it comes through from the field behind - and unless I dig down to Australia, I fear I will always be tackling it. It is in my rhubarb patch and doesn't look so bad once the rhubarb starts growing - it is the bane of my life and I have tried everything to get rid of the darn stuff. Anyone got any ideas, that work, on getting rid of it once and for all?
