The sun has just come out!


I have just been out under a blue sky and took a few pictures of a few plants in our garden.
We managed to mow the lawn yesterday so everywhere looks neater at last!

I hope you have all had a lovely Easter and have seen more sunshine than we have!

Almond blossom which has done well after a severe pruning last year.

Prostranthera which has spent the winter in our small conservatory but has been put outside because it’s petals are beginning to drop!!

‘Blue Beauty’ tulips bought at an autumn fair held at Rosemoor.

A pot of ivy and pansies.

Amelanchier against that rare blue sky!

The first bluebells under the hedge.

Jasmine inside the conservatory – not as many flowers this year but still pretty and strongly scented.

Guess what it is raining yet again – will it ever stop?!

I am sure you will have more blue skies soon Chris!
I had the same jasmine in my conservatory but it just grew too huge and was fastening itself round the blinds, so, it had to go!

Chris, I'm just loving your lilacs, pinks, mauves etc!!!! Gorgeous blooms you have!
Everything looks so floriferous in your garden, I'm envious! It's bursting with flower and colour. Such a pretty sight.
I do hope you've enjoyed a lovely Easter weekend!!!

Thank you so much for all your lovely comments. They made me smile after what has seemed to be an endlessly wet winter!
The garden is beginning to look better now and hopefully the sky will become bluer and we can all really enjoy the spring.
