What Has Been Happening

Today, shyly, a warm sun peeped periodically through the slow moving clouds, which released no rain. This gave an opportunity to wander around the garden to explore what has been happening whilst we have lurked inside.

The winter flowering cherry still has no idea that its season is over.

Views from the paths are enhanced by

continuing varieties of camellia,

daffodils,

 hellebores,

and pansies.

Comparatively new arrivals are epimedium, honesty, comfrey, aubretia; and

wallflowers, blending with

euphorbia, that with its fly, like the alliums, attracts insects such as the bee and the tiny creature on the wing to the right of that.

This evening we enjoyed a second helping of Oliver’s Chinese takeaway, with which Jackie drank Hoegaarden and I drank Ribera del Duero Camino Nuevo 2016

I am a septuagenarian enjoying rambling physically and photographing what I see, and rambling in my head as memories are triggered. I also ramble through a lifetime's photographs

  1. After a generous lunch, I dined on cheese and crackers, and a hard boiled egg. I washed it down with some Rubrato Aglianico Feudi di San Gregorio. That’s an acceptable red from Lazio. 🙂

    1. I remember going to the Victoria halls in London to see the Royal Horticultural Society’s Spring show, they introduced the first ever ‘Pink’ daffodil, what a ‘Wow’ factor that had, it made the national news on TV. I have always loved them.

  2. Spring has arrived here also, on the Canadian west coast, although the temperature does nothing to beckon us outside! But nature is amazing, and plants bloom and flourish at their allotted times in spite of lack of sun. I have a tiny garden compared to yours, but there are enough wonders out there to keep me amused!

  3. Lovely spring flowers. In April, it’s smart to take advantage of sun breaks. Today I foolishly stayed inside during a bright sunny hour, waiting too long for my walk which ended in rain. Luckily, it was only a light rain.

  4. So lovely to see the blooms in your garden Derrick and to see your Yucca plant has survived the frost.. We tied ours up in the centre yet we still lost one of them to the extreme cold and snow.
    Glad the Sun came out if only briefly.. 🙂 We have almost forgotten what it looks like LOL

      1. Oh, I can imagine! You’re very welcome. Thank You for sharing all the news, tours, past information and garden photos. Your watery winding road pictures are so lovely, Derrick.
