As we are staying at home as much as possible for the foreseeable future, it is rather kind of the weather to be giving us such sunny days. (We have had some frosts overnight though). I have been enjoying being out in the garden even more than usual and I think it will become more important to me this year. Above is Clematis Rosy Pagoda.
The ever faithful Lathyrus Vernus which I love to see every year.
A double camellia given to me by my mum a while ago. Although it may not be so good for insects, it still earns its place in the garden at this time of year.
The beautiful blue sky behind the unfurling lilac and magnolia.
Tulip 'Brown Sugar' getting ready to flower (this was last Saturday).
Tulip Negrita also getting ready to flower.
Brown Sugar today. I would have liked to buy more of these tulips, but for the last two years they sold out before I could get to them. They have lovely strong stems and (I will have to check) I think they are scented.
Tulip Negrita today.
I was also rewarded by seeing this little ladybird enjoying nectar/pollen (my knowledge of ladybirds seems sadly lacking) from this rather bedraggled and nibbled Scilla. (I was really pleased that my sometimes a little unpredictable camera produced this image.)
Just a reminder that those little things that are so important and which I have rather taken for granted are still there, if I care to look and enjoy.
