in the garden

out in full glory: snowdrops galore, primula, pansy, spring snowflake (leucojum), eranthis and hellebores
almost there: daffs, wild tulips,wild onion, pulsatilla, rose hip
budding: lilac, quince, black currants, pears
growing leaf: buddlia, figs, hydrangea
R moved the fig trees from their winter quarters outside as they have started to fruit but I worry about frost and have covers ready.
In the greenhouse the lemon is looking a bit weary but has made it through the winter, no fruit though.
We are still harvesting kale and sprouts and lamb's lettuce.
