Here is one of my lilac - it fills the air with its perfume

 It is really large (hides the compost bins) There is Clematis montana 'Elizabeth' climbing through it and will have another clematis still to be planted for late summer colour

Lovely Matty and Lizzie. I so enjoy these photos

Will take my camera out tomorrow and post some pics in the evening.

I'm sure I can smell that lilac

Thank you for gorgeous piccies everyone. I haven't much prettiness to contribute at the mo. but my apple blossom is particularly glorious this year - huge cumulus clouds of the stuff

Love the tubs, Lyn - that last one looks like it has been flower arranged!

Flo - love apple blossom - what sort is yours? And does it turn into many apples (squirrels pinched all mine last year)?  Did you ever get your 48 lavenders??  Spent yesterday morning potting mine up!

Those hyacinth colours are delicious

As promised  - here is my tulip Angelique:

 And a phlox flowering its socks off:

 And, as you can see, I rely heavily on forget-me-nots for my spring colour!:

Lovely pics. Hyacinths are beautiful together, sprig of apple blossom could hardly be more perfect and the tulip is almost like a lovely rose. Spring flowers are so pretty.

My garden, pics not great bit at least I've managed some.

Trust they are the right way up.

20/05/2013 at 17:22

Bit small, try harder next time KEF!

20/05/2013 at 17:34

But it's pretty and well kept, edges done and the right way up!

Best effort. First time I've found USB port on computer tower on my own. Miracles take a bit longer.

Love all recent pics here..great to see as weather hasn't been kind.

Just happened on this thread... Lovely to see so much colour from around the country, especially after that dreadfully long winter. Here goes with my first attempt to post a photo from my garden...
No ... Can't seem to do it. I need help...
I'm using a Touch screen on an iPad where all my photos are stored. I can find a 'Copy' menu to 'pick up' a photo but when I try to paste it into this box there the 'Paste' option just is not there.
Anybody out there also using an iPad and who knows how to paste in photos into these discussions? Please?

Birdy I think others have had probs with ipads too. There is also a problem with the photo thingy on here because we can't enlarge any of the pix so many of us have uploaded our pix to an external site instead and then transferred to the forum threads. I use 'photobucket' as it was suggested by another poster on here and have found it quite easy to use.

Thanks for reply Fairygirl. I'll have to come back to this problem - haven't done a thing today - isn't that the way when you've found like minded people to chat to?
Feel a bit peeved that the wonderfully immediate camera / photo facility on iPad can't be used on this otherwise great site.
Will look up 'photobucket' another time.
