Morning 👋🏼☕️, looks like these Iris 'Red Ember' are finally coming out to play. Perhaps the sun will come out too? 🤔 #iris #iris-hollandica #irishollandicaredember #dutchiris

The Dutch Iris bulbs are speeding their way along! It's funny how these bulbs are now already this big, yet hardly any of my daffs are poking through the soil 🤔 #iris #iris-hollandica #irishollandicaredember #dutchiris

None of my daffs have put in an appearance yet either, yet I have bluebells beginning to push their way up! 🤔

A few people are doing the bird watching this weekend, whereas I might be mostly going daff and primrose hunting 😂 @fuschia @mojo

Well I found some daffs finally! The garden is literally buzzing right now. And I did find another primula under a hedge - not sure if it's the lost pink one, but time will tell. Have fun with the birdwatch tomorrow Mo - I just downloaded the pack from the website so may have a go too 🐦🔎✏️📋 @mojo

I managed to do birdwatch late this afternoon Rich but still amazing how many birds do come into the garden in the space of an hour. Did you manage to do yours? @richard.spicer.7906

I did Mo! Glad to hear you did too. Although I didn't see as many as I'd hoped. Next doors cat was pottering with so I think he was frightening them off. Oh well - got a couple of nice shots, will post later 😊 @mojo

It was getting quite dark when I finished mine Rich, noted a jay and a nuthatch but not quick enough to take photo. Look forward to seeing your though 😊 @richard.spicer.7906

Dutch Iris - this one has a smoky rich purple colour with copper coloured falls. Apparently quite a good one to use in cut flower arrangements 🤓 #iris #iris-hollandica #irishollandicaredember #dutchiris
