There are lots of lovely flowers and plants in the garden at the moment! Dashing in and out between the showers over the weekend I managed to get a few photos.
I love the colour combination of the purple Honesty flowers against the acid green Euphorbia
and the bright blue of the Muscari or Grape Hyacinths - all that remains in the small spring garden I made a couple of years ago
Lovely little violets have self-seeded amongst the gravel - they always remind me of childhood woodland walks
The unusual cream coloured marsh marigolds growing in the pond.
I now know that the plant above is called Bergenia or Elephant's Ears thanks to all the kind people who told me what the plant is on my post about Biddulph Gardens. Our plant has red edged leaves and red stems unlike the one I saw there.
The bright yellow flowers of the Kerria Japonica are just opposite the conservatory windows and are a lovely cheerful sight at this time of year.
Last but not least a joy to come! A lovely tight flower bud amongst the fresh green leaves of the peony. I haven't got it in a cage but took the photo overhead through the support it will need later in the year.
