Springtime

It's as perfect a day as you could wish for out there - sunny, gentle breeze. The garden is looking it's absolute best - a feast for the eyes, ears (with bees buzzing busily) and nose. This port wine magnolia is a case in point. It is a fairly modest looking flower but the smell of lollies out there is intoxicating!


The wisteria is suddenly in flower, which heralds the beginning of spending the next few months keeping it on its trellis and not taking over the garden.


The maybush looks magnificent. It's a pretty dowdy looking plant for most of the year, but in these few weeks it definitely pays it keep.



I like this weigela with its two tone leaves. Unfortunately it's in an out-of-the-way part of the garden. Need to strike some cuttings and address this.


The last of the stone fruit - this one a white peach to flower. Which makes me think of fruit fly, my nemesis. Off now to order some exclusion bags - I will eat stone fruit this year!
