Superb gardening weather, definitely T shirt time. There is another flower on my Yellow River magnolia tree - smaller than the first but yellow.

Good day for potting up and June tomorrow so all half hardy plants can safely go outside now.  I keep finding more and more gorgeous coloured pansies.

That rose is "The Generous Gardener".  It is a huge shrub with me so could be a climber.  Smells glorious.  My garden is full of red, white and a blueish pink stocks so is very friafrant.  tempted to pick a bunch for the kitchen.  Some pics from the garden this morning.  So much elderflower blossom i could go into production of the cordial.

We had a very small shower through the night but just a trickle in the containers so not nearly enough.  Still it is very dark and gloomy now though still very warm.  we may see some more substantial rain today in Bristol.  Roses galore in my garden.  The clematis montana has been replaced by cream roses.  Great timing on their part.
