With the explosion of growth happening in the garden at the moment it would almost be worth showing the Tuesday View, hosted by Cathy at Words and Herbs every day rather than once a week!
Tuesday View 18th April 2017
Let’s zoom in to see the plants that make up the view today.
Eschscholzia californica is now adding the bright dots of colour previously supplied by tulips in the Large Island
The Above Californian Poppies have fringed edges and duel colours making them even more like tulips!
Dianthus add some perfume to the scene
Zooming in to see the tiny pink flowers of Cistus
Phlomis, now in full flower all around the garden, this one in the Large Island is one of the largest and produces far, far too many seedlings each year
Iris Jane Phillips with wild lupins
Standing in the same spot as for the Tuesday view but twisting just a fraction to the left the other side of the Large Island comes into view
Small flowered white Cistus
Dark Cotinus foliage is usually later into leaf
Elegantly tall Irises
Every time I walk around the garden I find a new Iris has opened its buds. At this rate all the flowers with be over by mid-May!
