The last month of spring provides us with an abundance of colour.
Apple blossom from ‘Belle de Boskoop’ a culinary variety which if left on the tree until late December will provide a dessert apple.
Dicentra spectabilis ‘alba’, Dutchman’s breeches
Cowslips (Primula veris),
Aquilegia vulgaris, a classic cottage garden plant and seeds everywhere!
Lilac (Syringa vulgaris) huge bunches of flowers with a stunning perfume.
Wild violets, considered as a weed by many as it is very invasive.
Pittosporum tenuifolium . The flowers are very insignificant and sometimes hard to find on the shrub but what a beautiful perfume in the early evening.
The three little maids
