A bud has appeared on my new little magnolia tree called "Yellow River".How exciting is that on a day when it did not look as if the rain would ever stop?

We exceeded 12 hours nonstop rain but dry now so i took two pics of my one Star of Bethlehem whichhas flowered.  I am sure I bought more than one bulb to plant in the autumn last year!

It has not stopped raining in Bristol all morning and still raining.  The roads and pavements are dire.  Puddles have appeared in places in my drive which have never been there before.

Such a wet day.  There is a duck pond outside my kitchen.  Thank goodness for conservatories but I do need to clean windows as soon as the weather is better.

I thought that too Joyce.  as they are coloured right from emerging I imagined them shivering  as they emerged one of those cold mornings and saying to each other "Oh drat,  We've missed the summer!"

I am used to my self seeding aquilegias offering me a choice of flower colour ranging from white to deep purple and all shades of blue or pink in between but this one is offering a variegated leaf cultivar.

Lily Pilly no need to feel ashamed.  You probably do not realise my garden is a wildlife friendly garden and full of native plants as well as cultivated varieties.  And very often it is the natives that are the most beautiful.

You must mean the elderflower head. Lily Pilly.  I just buried my head in its scent then took its picture.  This is the common ot garden one not the fashionable black leaved one.  Just beautiful.
