Flowering Currant

Before I begin today I have to say thank you for your wonderful and hilarious comments yesterday.  If you haven't seen it you have to go back and read what Angel Gem said - she has a wicked sense of humour!  Beware though, do not read it while eating or drinking anything and make sure you are sitting down!!!  Everyone else was so lovely too, from serious to funny to deadpan and everything in between.  Perhaps we should do these sort of daft questions more often, I really did enjoy reading what you all had to say.  Thank you for the smiles!

********************

One of the most beautiful plants in the garden right now is the Flowering Currant.  It has got better each year since I started pruning it after flowering, more and more shoots and more and more flowers.



It certainly seems to be happy this year with so many beautiful pink flowers on display.




What more could you ask for in a plant!


I hope you have enjoyed seeing the beauty of the Flowering Currant!

Here are some of my other posts about just one sort of flower

  12. When I was young my friend Julie had a swing in her garden. I wasn't very fond of Julie but I did like her swing and as such I'm sure it was karma that led to me flying off the back off it into a pretty bush with pink flowers. My sore bottom was accompanied by a couple of stings from the alarmed bees that are drawn to the pretty plant and from then on I have always called it the bee tree! Nostalgia works in funny ways though and I now love sniffing the leaves and picking little sprigs of blossom to bring inside x Jane

  21. Gorgeous flowering currant, it's one of my favourites too, I remember it from the garden when I was little. I'm laughing about the napkins folded into the shape of Sydney Opera House. Of course we always do that here too. CJ xx
