Selection of Flowers in my Garden Today


By neellan


This Welsh Poppy popped open in the sunshine this afternoon

The Orange poppy followed suit looking rather crumpled in it’s rush to enjoy the sun!

Double Pink Tulips finally looking frillier – I think they are called Angelique

Love the bloom on the Dark Knight Tulips

One of the first Rhododendrons to open, it is pale pink now it used to be white, this Bluebell has beaten the others too they are all still in bud in the Spinney.

The other Rhododendron to be ahead of the rest is this yummy pink one – I don’t know their names alas.

Lovely sunny weather and a little rain has done wonders for the flowers this spring hope you enjoyed seeing a few of mine that are flowering today.

I do like the crumpled orange poppy - it looks ever so lovely. Your Rhoddies are nice too and isn't it great when the sun comes out and brings the flowers along with it :)
