Bulbs bursting out

While removing ivy which was engulfing one of my garden sheds, I discovered a swathe of Hyacinth bulbs about to flower.
Emerging from under a pile of dead ivy leaves, these lovely plants which might also have some daffodils in the mix, look sensational despite having been covered for months by leaf debris.

Which just goes to show that often it’s the gardens which look as though they are empty often have treasures waiting to be found.

Another example is the fruit tree which I think is a plum of some kind. Again the ivy was doing a take-over bid from the roof around the tree and was stopping the blossoms from getting any sunshine.

Now all I have to do is keep the chooks out of the bulb plantings,
