Let me take you back in time……
The daffodils this spring were marvellous! We had a few warm days at the beginning of April that brought the flowers forward and then from Easter onwards the weather was decidedly chilly. Very dry but chilly and with very little sunshine.
The white daffodils look just like butterflies when a breeze catches them! Most of these flowers are scented as well.
The blossom on the fruit trees was good this spring.
Other trees with blossom looked wonderful this spring too.
I took photos of some of the plants in the garden.
Last autumn I ordered some tulips and planted them in large tubs. I was glad I did when I saw the damage the deer had wreaked on those planted in the borders! I covered the tubs in wire mesh and left them at the back of the house to over-winter. I had no mouse, vole or deer damage at all!
This post has taken me weeks to write because I have been so busy and tired! I thought about abandoning it a couple of times because of its lateness but decided to post it after all and I hope you will forebear with me.
My choice of music is ‘Schmetterling’ (Butterfly) by Grieg, one of his Lyric Pieces.
