    ...same colour,  different fragrance: Lilacs of 2021. They're blooming everywhere right now  :-)

  • Hi Mart1

    Yes it is lovely to see all the Trees and shrubs,bursting forth with their blossoms and smells.

    Just hope the rain knows when to stop, or we will all be working overtime with new growths..

    Lovely to look down the garden on very wet and gloomy day,and see the colours beginning burst through.

    It might be a dull day, but the view still looks good.

    Hi SunnyKate2 and Mike B ! Yes, every day leaves and weeds are growing visibly. While some blooms dissapear, new show up. And nothing is so fresh like the smells of a garden or meadow after rain.

    On the photo: Lily of the valley , planted with love by neighbours in our appartment house.

    Have a great weekend everyone :-)

    Yes, those wonderful weeds.....
    It seems it was a waste of time, and money, putting weed killer down with the current weather.....

    What a garden and what a panorama! You're blessed to live there, Sunny Kate  :-)

  • Our grass is getting close to be cut, but before that happens, I thought I'd get down and grab some buttercup pics.

    And a waxcap!

    Finally, the Spanish Bluebells looking good.

    For those interested, this was the set up, a mini tripod, wide angled lens and using the Canon Connect app to remote shoot, because there is no way I'll get up from down there....

  • Our grass is looking more and more like a meadow, I'll be devastated when it has to be cut.

    More flowers appearing, a yellow poppy

    Lovely wildflowers, Mike, I am sure your pollinators are happy. I must have been asleep, but have only just heard about no-mow-May where it is suggested that we do not mow for the whole of May, allowing the flowers to bloom to feed insects which will help to feed our birds. Wish I could convince Mr GB to leave the lawn cutting for a month but he is obsessed with having a tidy garden!

    Kind regards, Ann

    Thank you Ann.

    No-mo-May has probably been an easy one for a good many, with all the rain we've been enjoying, or should that be 'enduring'....

    But, all good things come to an end, and the gardener is calling Friday......
