More Blossoms


By neellan


The recent lovely weather has encouraged more Blossom to burst forth

First the Amelanchier

A closer look – love the contrast with the brown leaves

Japanese Quince – Chaenomeles was not far behind

Lovely Orange blooms like a Japanese painting

Rather late this year the Forsythia growing wild through next door’s conifers

But a welcoming bright yellow down by the gate

Magnolia Stellata

Now the clouds are gathering and it seems the cooler weather is about to return – the blossom will be all the more welcome.

Very attractive isn't it, our forecast predicts a huge drop in temps for the next few days as well, I do like your view and your Amelanchier looks grand against the backdrop....

All very pretty. it will be a shock to the plants when the weather suddenly turns cold again. i hope the wind doesn't bow the flowers off the Stellata, its so attractive. Mine's dropping now.

Thank you Steragram, my Cherry Blossom is falling like confetti sadly, but everything else is so far holding it's own despite the chill breeze today.

Thank you for liking Kidsgran :o)

Glorious blossoms, isn't the quince beautiful, so vibrant, our cherrys just stsrting to blossom so hope it lasts.....confetti is a good description when it drops, the worst is westerly wind and rain, covers the windows in pink!

What a riot of colour,Neellan..I love the Amelanchier enhancing your lovely view,.and the others are so vibrant too..and the dainty Stellata is so pretty..It turned cooler here in the afternoon ,so I hope it doesn't spoil the lovely blossom..not much rain forecast as yet,so they might be ok for a while :o)

Thank you Pam The Quince is a lovely colour isn't it? rain here today so everything is looking droopy, hope the westerly wind keeps away for you until your blossom has had it's moment of glory at least! :o)

Thank you Bloomer pleased you like the blossoms here, it has been quite chilly and wet today but not much wind about so hopefully I get to keep them all for a while longer! :o)

We had rain last night,so the plants got a good watering,and much needed,but this morning it is beautiful sunshine,and blue skies..maybe a shower later this afternoon,but a chilly frosty night forecast..My seedlings are out in the fresh air,but they will be back in the cold frame tonight...
