I can’t believe I missed the first wave of flowers. The sea of tulips, crocuses and daffodils have come and gone. I took these in something of a rush, so combined with that and my general lack of expertise in photography, they don’t quite capture the rage of colours that has erupted. For example, the former deadzone at the end of the driveway is now a pointillist paradise of yellow and blue faces, but they seem somewhat lost in these shots. They also lack much of the deeper greens of the foliage plants and, of course, the rather heady air that hangs in the garden (right now it’s from the lilacs, soon the lavenders will take over, with perhaps a catmint interlude). Ach, it’s still fun to share.
It’s still relatively early in the season, with much of the garden still developing. Every couple of weeks tends to bring a different plants’ new blooms. The forest is just about to burst—it looks like it’s going to be an excellent year for mountain laurels. I’ll hopefully get a chance to capture them as the summer creeps on.
