Just a few captured moments from around and about in the last few days...
The leaves on the hornbeam starting to unfurl. They always amaze and delight me, the look as though they have been pleated and folded up and even when the undo themselves they still keep their pleated look. That is why I love them so much!
There are still a few old leaves hanging on, but the fat buds are there just waiting to do their thing and show us their beauty.
The clematis - a montana of some sort I think - is in bud and will be flowering soon. I love the way that the flowers have four petals and the flowers seem to come I fours as well. How clever is that.
There are bright green leaves appearing on plants all over the place. I just love green!!!!!
You cannot tell, but these are tiny little new holly leaves.
The plants in the garden are springing up all over the place, above are daylilies and below is my beautiful peony. I took this picture of the peony on Sunday and it is now about twice this height!
Flowers are either blooming or well on the way to flowering.
The roses are all in full leaf now and they will be beautiful when they flower.
Bulbs are doing their thing as well. You can just see above a lily popping out from under my bluebird and the bluebells are flowering too. Some of them are white!
The primroses are in full flower now and I really need to divide them - and the snowdrops which finished some time ago. All is busy busy busy in the garden.
The grape vine is still bleeding, and the other day it was really going for it. It seems to have calmed down a little, but there is no sign of any of the buds breaking, so I am keeping hope, but it isn't out of the woods yet - no pun intended!
Finally the flowers on my "seasonal" cactus are just about to appear!! Exciting times indeed.
Just a little round up of what is growing and happening I thought. Turns out quite a lot is happening! What is blooming and growing in your garden right now?
