In today's sunshine


Another lovely Spring day to enjoy the early blooms
I just wish my garden was large enough for this ornamental cherry, it is nearly in my garden, on the verge & acrosss the road from my house

While out the front taking photo these two daffs are in pots on the steps
First is Professor Einstein, nice but top heavy so flops a bit no matter how I try & hold it up

This smaller one I’ve lost it’s label, but it’s small & delicate, supposed to be scented but not to my nose

Plus spotted these borage self sown seedlings coming up, I’ll transplant them into deeper pots later

I think you have won both ways with the cherry - you get the lovely blossom and not the hungry spreading roots...

That blossom is lovely Grandad, everywhere we go now its all coming out, I think we are having a really colourful spring, really lifts the spirits doesn't it, been nice here all week...Not much getting done indoors at the moment but who cares, I know where my priorities lie and in certainly does not include dusting, lol...
