The new garden in spring

We moved into this house at the very end of October last year, when there was no colour in the garden except for the tail end of the lavenders.

 I wrote about the new garden in January and and looking back at it now it looks quite bare, with just a couple of splashes of colour. But 3 months later, I'm starting to see the garden blossom.

The only thing I've done in the garden so far is to tidy the borders a little, cut back the leggy lavender plants and remove some of the dead leaves from last year. I have some ideas for planting, but I'm going to hold off until I've seen how the garden progresses throughout the summer.
