Just out of shot to the right there are two Tulip flowers.
These are ones left over from a previous year. I certainly haven't planted any Tulips for several years now. I had forgotten about these ones, and I didn't even remember what colour they were. It looks as if they will be pink:
The Philadelphus tree / shrub that I pruned so severely last Summer is also smothered in fresh green shoots.
It still looks ugly at present, but hopefully in a few weeks time it will look OK. It couldn't really be worse than it was before I pruned it!
The Euphorbia is at its best right now. Green can be such a cold colour, but this shade of green is anything but cold:
The Golden Hops are romping away now, clothing the dull wooden fence panels with a fresh coat of zingy colour.
Talking of fence panels, the ones on the other side of the garden will soon be hidden by the rapidly rising Raspberries (how's that for alliteration?):
You can probably just see that I have put back up the wires which I had to remove when the fence was replaced a few weeks ago.
The ferns are also doing their thing. Their brown, dessicated stumps are suddenly bursting into life and thrusting up lots of rapidly-uncoiling hairy new fronds...
