Spring flowers are on display here, there and everywhere... along roadsides and decorating parks, houses and countryside. There are blocks of colour that show just how planting in bulk can be very effective. However, on a smaller budget, a few bulbs dotted around can still look good.
Left: Narcissus Tete-A-Tete planted last year, aren't as tall as many other varieties. With Northern Ireland's windy conditions, these shorter varieties hold up better to the gales.

|Above: Some crocus beginning to fade, whereas others are still going strong.|
|Above: Gorse growing in the countryside - not a bulb - but a prickly shrub that flowers throughout Ireland.|

Long May the Spring Colour Continue!
