article imagePhoto Essay: Spring comes to the UK Special

By Jane Fazackarley     Apr 27, 2013 in Environment
Spring took its sweet time this year with temperatures being well below average during much of March and April, but finally there are signs that warmer weather is coming to the UK as the bulbs first planted in Autumn have started to come into bloom.
Although the weather is still a bit of a mixed bag with wild winds, heavy showers and the promise of more cooler temperatures on the way, we have at least had some sunny days this week, which served as a reminder that summer will soon be here.
The best part of the spring for me has always been the scent and colours of the many beautiful flowers that bloom this time of year, and while they might have been a little later than expected, the daffodils, tulips, hyacinths have all come out into full flower, and the winter aconite has put in a belated appearance too.
When I stepped out into the garden on Friday, I noticed the tulips planted in November had finally flowered.
The daffodils have been out in full colour for the past two weeks and are still in full bloom.
When I walked further down the garden, I discovered the hyacinths were blooming and that the winter aconite were finally starting to flourish.
And a lone tulip, which had been promising to flower for a long time now, had also started to come out into full colour.
As I continued to walk through the garden, I also discovered that as the new lawn is taking hold, so are the wild flowers.
