May Flowers

Now that we are at the beginning of May I thought I would just quickly post some photos of what has been flowering recently. Starting with the lilac.Photo of lilac

The lilac contrasts nicely with the yellow laburnum blossoms.

The Spanish/hybrid bluebells have been posing with broom, tulips and primroses.

More tulips.

The cuckoo pint looks interesting.

Greater celandine.

Forget-me-nots and strawberries are flowering all along the path around my alpine trough ….

…which is also doing well.

And the dog violets are still gracing the lawn.Photo of dog violet

  1. Your way ahead with flowers than our flowers in Pennsylvania. We’ve had a few lilacs and sorts but nothing really flowering yet. Just beautiful flowers.🙂🙂

  2. What a glorious array of new Spring colour and growth, RR. I can only imagine the delightful scents that fill your garden at the moment.

  3. Beautiful photos. What kind of lilac is it? We have the common lilac and ‘Miss Kim’ (very short type). Your lilac seems to have double petals.
