The bluebells are finally coming out and it was the perfect day for a bit of work around the garden. I've put in foxgloves and oriental poppies, both I hope will self-seed.
The cherries are in blossom and really hoping for a bumper harvest of morrellos this year; last year's cherries dropped off in a really dry spell.
Just adore this red crab apple blossom, wonderfully vibrant.
I've also planted a miniature lilac. I just had to buy it down the garden centre this week, as it reduced me to tears as my old cat Freddie used to love lying in the one I had at the old house so I bought it in memory of him. It smells divine.
Of course I was working under supervision and my work was scrutinised throughly by Archie,
then Mickey checked that the cat walk-ways across the bed were still accessible despite the influx of plants,
and Merlin checked out the newly pressure-washed decking and found it perfectly adequate for a bit of rolling in the sunshine!
