After a hard two hours work this morning cutting out brambles from a hedge I took a stro;; round my garden to see what is going to delight on May Day. My goodness what a lot of blossom to come - lilac starting, laburnum getting there, apple and pear will be in full flower soon, mock orange just covered in buds, weigela starting as is Potentilla fruticosa, aquilegia aplenty. buds opening on the peonies, Dutch iris sure to be open at last as the buds have swollen,late tulips , bluebells and forget me nots and double daisies, campanulas, poached egg plants . No doubt there will be lots more as I have never seen the borders so lush. I hope it will be good weather for photographs. Here is the painting I did on Mayday 1991 up my garden.
