Friday has come round more quickly this week with May Bank Holiday Monday. I seem to have been a day behind all week. It has been chilly here, as we have been mostly under cloudy skies with a brisk easterly wind, so time spent in the garden has been shorter than usual at this time of year. There is still much to do, but the ground is so dry it is impossible to get on with some jobs. It is remarkable how most things are flourishing despite the lack of rain. When the sun has been out I have taken the opportunity to snap some of the growth and early blooms.
The flower beds are filling out.
The climbers are reaching for the sky and the fence that was repaired last year is beginning to be clothed in plants again.
The shady area at the top of the garden is springing into life
Even in the darkest corner the ferns are beginning to unfurl.
The Ranunculus are simply beautiful in colour and in form.
It may not have been as warm as I would have liked and certainly not warm enough to sit out but every trip into the garden has brought pleasure so that cannot be all bad can it?
I hope you have had a good week.
