The Garden – A Comparison

Several people have commented on how far ahead of their gardens is mine. I thought I’d dig into the archive and post some comparisons from the last few years.

March 2019

March 2020

March 2021

March 2022

I’d probably say 2019 was the furthest advanced, with 2020 and 2022 equal second and 2021 the most behind. No tulips yet which are a good indicator; there were several in 2019

About TanGental

My name is Geoff Le Pard. Once I was a lawyer; now I am a writer. I've published several books: a four book series following Harry Spittle as he grows from hapless student to hapless partner in a London law firm; four others in different genres; a book of poetry; four anthologies of short fiction; and a memoir of my mother. I have several more in the pipeline. I have been blogging regularly since 2014, on topic as diverse as: poetry based on famous poems; memories from my life; my garden; my dog; a whole variety of short fiction; my attempts at baking and food; travel and the consequent disasters; theatre, film and book reviews; and the occasional thought piece. Mostly it is whatever takes my fancy. I avoid politics, mostly, and religion, always. I don't mean to upset anyone but if I do, well, sorry and I suggest you go elsewhere. These are my thoughts and no one else is to blame. If you want to nab anything I post, please acknowledge where it came from.

  1. I’ve had several other such surprises, Geoff. These months are not as different as our memories suggest

  4. Memory is always a poor judge of actuality. The term “making memories” is very apt!

    They all look gorgeous to me, but the forsythia spoke of an earlier spring time.

    I’m surprised you’re ahead of us here in Maryland (U.S.) but we had a cold winter, for us, and have been cool so far this spring. No tulips here yet, though our squirrels don’t let tulips happen much in my yard!
