Blooming lovely

“People from a planet without flowers would think we must be mad with joy the whole time to have such things about us.”

Iris Murdoch, author and philosopher

Since the weather has (finally) been getting warmer we’ve been enjoying watching what’s appearing in our garden because, of course, we had no idea what was lurking beneath the soil.


Peony by the front gate


The peonies are nestled under a stunning Laburnum tree


Clematis keeping the rose company outside the front door


What colour will you be Rosie? (And yes, we shall nuke the bugs)


There’s plenty of Lily of the Valley in the back garden – it smells divine!

So, to have all these things just bursting into life is great, especially as we’re really not that green fingered. Who knows, maybe when we’ve finished with the house we may discover a new passion…..
