After some wet and windy weather (still rather changeable) it was good to get out-and-about in the sunshine. Thankfully we haven't missed out on blossom time whilst in Italy. Actually we haven't ventured beyond our local area. I went to the library to pick up some reserved books and couldn't resist taking a photo of the blossom hanging down on the low branches on one of the ornamental cherry trees in the park.
I'm joining Amy for Five on Friday link-up and I'm sharing some collages of photos of what's been happening in our garden since the beginning of May.
Many of the plants and shrubs have become established since we moved into this house a few years ago. The apple and pear trees are also doing well and are in their third and second year. They're in full blossom and have the potential to produce some fruit to enjoy later in the year. The branches of the fig look rather stark in comparison, but the tree will soon produce leaves and hopefully a lot of fruit.
I love tulips and I've had so much pleasure seeing them open up in the sunshine. The collage doesn't do justice to their beauty as you look down into the flower heads. I also enjoy looking at the white pelargoniums. We have also red and pink ones, but the white ones are my favourites. Mr. P. remembered that I'm trying to create a corner of a flower bed for plants with white flowers and has planted out some white ones there where they look good against the green hedge.
It's always interesting to see how other gardeners are doing not only in the UK, but in other parts of the world. Gardening gives us such pleasure.
Thank you Amy for hosting Five on Friday. Do visit her Love Made My Home blog and see what others have posted.
