Hasn't it been lovely to see some sunshine and blue sky? My plants have definitely been enjoying it. Here are some of the highlights at the moment. Above is a Daphne 'Eternal Fragrance' which has looked like it is going to die for about the last six months but then surprised me by flowering and when I lean down and get my nose to the flower - wow - lemony, lily of the valley, delicate and almost delicious! If it doesn't survive, at least I'll have enjoyed these flowers.
Here are my hyacinths (the flash really doesn't do the colour any justice as they are a much deeper blue in real life, but they are in a shady area of the garden).
Excitement of unfurling tulip leaves. I am really hoping for a riot of colour this year.
Beautiful markings of crocus.
My three hellebores are doing well although they like to hang their heads downward so need a bit of help when being photographed.
Another pretty crocus.
A view of that elusive blue sky through the branches of Prunus Kojo-no-mai - a bit of an experiment as I couldn't see what the picture would be like, but I'm pleased with the result.
For a bit of feel good ELO 'Mr Blue Sky', here's a link to Youtube. Enjoy!
