Whilst I trudged around in England under some grey skies Germany has finally had some decent weather and my garden is completely different after 10 days away – not least my scraggy lawn which is now covered with daisies and dandelions. Trailing hearts have flowered, the anenomes that I was convinced had rotted in the ground are now flowering – mauve and white – the herbst anenome has come back and all the daffodils and other spring bulbs are beautiful. Virtually everything I transplanted from other gardens has come through – I am particularly pleased that the peony made it because I've never had any success with them before. Only the hollyhocks are slow.

I was worried about leaving these babies while I was in England but they flourished under the watchful eyes of Suzannah, my neighbour. On Monday Herr L comes to measure up for the garden and he's bringing a sample of stone with him for the walls. He intends to start work at the beginning of May and then it's all go.
