The first of my three alpine beds, the one i planted up in the autumn, is starting to show signs of life.
Aren't these just lovely?

Looking good GG, looking good. The fruits of your autumn labours are coming through.

Thanks for your kind comments, folks. It is brilliant when you see a return on the work.
On Saturday I spent a while playing with the rocks in the lower bed with a view to getting it ready for planting. I think it's nearly there, just needs a big one near the centre. I can excavate a suitable candidate from elsewhere in the garden.
I spent a while planting things into some of the cavities in the stone wall - a couple of lewisias, two small hart's tounge ferns and some little sedums. Most of the lewisias I planted there in the autumn have taken well - there should be a nice display of flowers.
