It’s lilac time again ! Do you remember I showed you my lilac tree in bud 2 weeks ago ?
IT LOOKED LIKE THIS (syringa vulgaris Beauty of Moscow)
EXACTLY 2 WEEKS LATER IT LOOKS LIKE THIS
THIS IS A CLOSE UP, SOFT LILAC BUDS AND PURE WHITE FLOWERS
PRETTY AS A PICTURE ( I think)
As all the buds are blooming at the same time I put lots of them in vases for myself and the rest I gave to family and friends. Each year I remove all the flowers and each year I get lots of flowers back.
We have such nice weather at the moment, very sunny, bright blue sky, not too cold….what more do you want. I try to enjoy it as much as I can cos colder weather is on its way.
We have a very stubborn tree, our Amelanchier (juneberry) starts blooming every year on April 1st. But as we have had a lot of sun and soft weather we were sure it would bloom earlier this year. Just one little branch has been in bloom for about a week now and the rest is still in bud.
JUST 2 SMALL FLOWER STALKS.
THE REST OF THE TREE LOOKS LIKE THIS; ALL FLOWERS STILL IN BUDD
MY SKIMMIA KEW GREEN IS BUZZING WITH BEE’S NOW THAT THE FLOWERS ARE OPEN
OUR WATERHEN (coot) STILL HASN’T FOUND A MATE YET, BUT SHE IS FEELING VERY MUCH AT HOME IN OUR GARDEN. LOOK AT HER BEAUTIFULL BEAK.
I am still very sad about my little dog who died suddenly last week, I miss her a lot.
