    Spring or Autumn???????

    I always preferred Autumn to Spring - I think the colours attracted me. But this spring has been epic - I think I'm converted now. Bear in mind our Spring arrives much later here in the Highlands.

    Which season do you prefer?

    I couldn't decide either until walking through the blue bell woods with our dog this last few days. The scent is glorious but I do wish it would warm up a bit more.

    We visited RHS Wisley last Friday and it was so chilly we needed gloves! We didn't have any unfortunately 😁

    How beautiful those fox cubs are.
    There are six of them, but they move so quickly it is hard to get pictures.

    Definately WINTER! (And I'm not joking!)

    It would appear Spring has it - and why not .

    Spring in Ontario is very short. We don’t put bedding plants out until mid May, so only hardy bulbs flower before then. Leaves are just beginning to appear, but summer is just around the corner. I seem to go from boots to sandals overnight. We do have fox cubs in the garden already.

    Another vote for spring, and hopefully warmer weather on the way. Although it's a long time coming this year, now May, and I'm still freezing

    Definitely spring for me, it’s when our rear garden ‘springs’ to life. The mature shrubs and lilac tree start flowering and all the Pieris changes colour. Sadly we lost our very old cherry blossom tree to high winds in February. Also it’s good to see the perennials in the Dutch walling come to life.

    Autumn time means a constant carpet of leaves to be cleared back and front as we’re overshadowed by a neighbours row of enormous horse chestnut and lime trees.

    We’re also letting the grass grow on the sloping part of the garden, it’s filled with primroses and dandelions…the insects love it. 🐝 🦋 and unfortunately some of these 🐌

    I just love both equally, when its spring it is my favourite with all the flowers butterflies and trees all in new growth, then when it is Autumn I just love that, all the different colours and the hardier flowers but when you stand at one end of a road that in Winter can look sooooo drab and all the glorious autumn colours are on the trees I think it takes a lot to beat that........ I do love both equally x hugs x x

    I have 6 large acer trees around my garden all of different shapes and coloured leaves and they are a joy to watch burst into life in Spring. I also have a silver birch, another large tree that springs into white blossom and then a very large honeysuckle that has spread and grown into our elderflower tree. So we have an elderflower with honeysuckle flowers!

    However, the absolute joy I find are our patches of snow drops when they come out in spring. You know winter is receding and spring has arrived when they come out.

    My favourite is definitely spring as it shows better weather ahead.
    We also have 2 smaller shrub acers in the front garden. Then another two in pots. As you can guess I love them especially as they change colours with the seasons.
