How Does Your Garden Grow?

My garden just grows wild these days.  The mix of Flanders Poppies and Aquilegia by my back door come up every year from self seeding.  The yellow rose is almost overgrown but always has a very sweet perfume when flowering.

Evening Light

These two photos should go together as a panorama.  They depict part of the view from my home showing the long shadows over the contours of the lawns in the evening light.

Floral Beauty

In a sad way fallen blossoms can be very beautiful.  The Paulonia has flowered well this year but my tree struggles in the conditions prevailing here.

The End of Winter

These bare trees are now well coated with leaves and look lovely with their fresh green coats.  But winter can be very picturesque as well and I enjoy scenes like this in my garden.

Spring Garden Pictures

This year my Spring garden has been very pretty.  This lavender bush by my door attracts many bees so care is needed when going past.  The dogwoods and bluebells were out together and looked most attractive.
