Sunny garden in late spring

This is my garden last Thursday morning before breakfast. Do you blame me for not wanting to go to work? It's not large and has nothing particularly unusual in it. But flowers are so wonderful! These are just bright yellow tulips.
A view down the garden. See the fantastic red leaves on my little plum tree towards the end.
Flowering cherry with rhododendrum at its base. Already today, three days later, the blossom is starting to fall like pink snow on to the lawn.
Lilac - the sweetest perfume in the world, I think.
And here is it again. With my hand holding it towards the camera! One-handed photography - what skill.
The cherry again. Look at that sky!


This is Alpine forget-me-not - a wonderful intense true blue. It seeds itself - but not too freely. The photo doesn't really do it justice.

Now I must go and ice a cake. Son-in-law's birthday yesterday; Husband's today.

Nothing in particular in your garden???? It is absolutely stunning, Isabelle!!! Well, your photos make it look that way!

Well, thank you for your kind comment. Praising a keen gardener's garden is like praising the baby! I have no particularly unusual plants. I just like cramming them in, and planting them so that they look nice together. Or, that's the idea.
