Aprils nearly over, thank goodness.
Well thank goodness there is only one day left of April. Weather wise it has been a foul month. I have lost most of the buds on my wisteria, all the tops of several pieris, my japanese maples have brown edged leaves etc etc etc. Severe frosts have done more damage than I first realised. We are now going through another rainy spell. Woe is me! BUT every cloud has a silver lining.....the auriculas and cowslip have flowered and flowered. The drumstick primulas are still pretty and the white thrift is just getting ready to burst. I treated myself to a scabious today, butterfly wings, lovely name. The last photo is of our rusty old garden ornament CHURCHILL. This is for Rose, she knows why, and I am glad I am not the only one who sometimes can't see 100 per cent.
Also I would like to thank Mark at The Green Fingered Photographer. I won the monthly competition he holds "Wednesday Wanderings". The prize is one of his mounted photographs. Mark has a way with the camera that most of us can only dream of, and I have a great respect for his work. Tku Mark it will be a priviledge to have one of your works on my wall.
