This is the Hydrangea that my friend Rosemary gave me for my Birthday. Thanks, Rosemary, I love it!
My recently-acquired Dahlia "Bishop of Llandaff" is living up to expectations, flowering profusely now.
This is a Hypericum, which volunteered itself into my garden some years ago.
When the Hypericum flowers fall, they leave behind these beautiful berries, which start off white but eventually turn a deep pink colour:
My Sweet Peas ("Spencer Mixed") are producing flowers now. Not a huge number so far, but there are plenty of buds, and the flowers that have opened are in a range of really gorgeous colours.
I'm going to count this as a flower too. It is my Olive tree, which is currently covered in flowers.
Of course an Olive tree in England is never going to produce a viable crop, although this one does usually set a few fruits each year - tiny things about the size of a Blueberry. It is not intended as a food plant though, simply an ornament on the patio. You can't see this in my photos, but it grows in a large terracotta pot. It helps me to imagine that we live in the Mediterranean!
Finally for today, I want to show you this Harlequin Ladybird larva. I have only seen a couple so far. Perhaps they are not numerous in my garden this year because there have been few aphids (their primary prey).
