Wordless Wednesday – Spring blossom

The quince tree has put on leaf and the blossom is opening all within a few days

This crab apple has pinker flowers but the fruit is yellow, unlike the crab apple I showed yesterday the fruit on this one never stays on the tree for more than a couple of weeks

I’m told this is an ornamental flowering plum, possibly Prunus blireana


A new purchase, Magnolia stellata


Wordless Wednesday – Iris unguicularis

Iris unguicularis

Iris unguicularis

I’m pleased to see that the divisions I’ve made of Iris unguicularis are all now producing flowers. It is the plant that flowers for the longest period during winter; often from November to May
