Working in the garden

Corylus contorta
At last, a sunny warm day and a chance to work in the garden. The soil is very wet so I worked along the edge of the paths. Sadly both of the Osterospurmums jocundums have succumbed to the winter weather.
I was surprised to see the two lavenders seem to be thriving, I did not think they would survive.

I took this photograph after clearing various seedlings and grass. I grew a lot of my cut flowers along this path last summer.

Speaking of cut flowers, I picked a stem of Hellebore but it had flopped over after a couple of days. I cut off the flowerheads and floated them in water.
