There’s so much going on in the garden at the moment. My husband is convinced that the trees just wait until our backs are turned then churn out a few more leaves and blossom. It seems that every time we look things are more voluptuous and gorgeous. Here’s a collage of some star plants for May here in Lancashire, North West England.
Top row – Cherry Blossom and Magnolias
Second row – Clematis alpina
Third row – Apple Blossom and Lunaria annua (Honesty)
Bottom row – Wisteria and Camassia
Below – Lilac and Viburnum opulus ‘Roseum’ syn Sterile
I love these soft pastel shades of spring. Although soft lilac and creamy white flowers are common in summer too I find that they are often over-shadowed by blooms with much brighter colours. I enjoy them more right now in May when their chalky pastel colours sing out with the fresh lime green leaves of spring.
Have a lovely day & Happy Gardening! Gillian 🙂
