“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…..
We were delighted when the tree in our front garden burst into blossom.
Since I was a kid I’ve absolutely loved spring blossom.
The boulevard in Weston-Super-Mare, where I grew up, enchanted me from an early age at this time of year. I have many happy memories of walking under the pretty pink blossom trees.
And so it kinda reminds me of my mum, which makes me extra smiley.
