Pink blossom, hopelessly romantic?
Or sickly sweet like candy floss?
Whatever you think, and I find them far too frou-frou, I reckon we all cannot fail but to be impressed by this sight against a blue sky.
Finally a fine weekend is forecast, which will make a pleasant change, especially for a bank holiday weekend. Be sure to spend as much time as possible outside, that’s certainly my plan. D.
How lovely. On closer inspection those little buttercup type flowers were really soaked after the heavy rain yesterday.
Perhaps this note should just read ‘Stop the press: Spring is on its way.’
Who would not want to make room for this shrub. It likes a sunny position in moist but free draining soil and will reach up to about 5 m. The leaves are a rounded shape, deep rich purple in colour, reaching up to 10cm long. In Summer it has fluffy plumes that from a distance, resemble smoke, so pretty.
Have a good weekend.
