Apple blossom always looks beautiful with the droplets of rain
Morning all, the sun was shining first thing so I took the opportunity to grab a few photos from the gardens, but there are not many to be had still and we are a good month behind now, what a funny season when the daffodils are out with the lilacs.
The only lilac in bloom, we have several varieties but all the others are tight buds still
In the orchard it's also a funny season, the pears have now blossomed and in full leaf and there looks to be a reasonable amount of fruit, the plums and gages are just going off and the apples in the early stages of blossoming as you can see.................note one small terrier by the name of Poppy going about her work of keeping things in order.............at least I am sure she thinks she's in charge of everything, a typical terrier really.
So far this the only Viburnum in bloom the rest are way behind, I think this one is Lantana but we've got several varieties and I get some muddled, but it's a biggie pushing 10' and that's after it's winter prune. Note the blue sky, that was a couple of hours ago and now the rain clouds are gathering
This Kerria Japonica is really struggling, the one in the top hedgerow looks better but after all the rain this week it's a bit wet underfoot the go up through the paddock to take a photo
Self set Pansies, they never fail to give a good show
And a glorious daffodil, plenty still in bloom and here we are mid May
OK folks, that's my little share for today. Now I need to get my head down and do some office work then later on some magazine work which needs to be on it's way very shortly................a Christmas commission this early would you believe. Hope you all have a good day.
