Sunshine and flowers

Gardening is a matter of your enthusiasm holding up until your back gets used to it. ~Author Unknown

Since the bank holiday (which was mainly drizzle for us) the sun has been out - so typical of the British weather.   It's been good for the garden though as lots of flowers are now brightening it up and our rhubarb is coming on a treat.

Our lilac bush is adding some lovely colour to the back garden next to the camelias and our hellibores which seem to flower forever.

In the front garden we have a multitude of Primroses and our Weigela is also blossoming well - love the contrast with the silver foliage plant which I have no idea of it's  name.

 I hope to spend some time in the garden this weekend weeding the borders initially and then hopefully enjoy some sunshine and stitching.  I am very close to another finish for May.
