I always enjoy watching the coverage of Chelsea and the gorgeous plants on display there, so I thought I'd record some of the flowers that have just come into bloom. All the sunny weather has made such a difference...only a couple of weeks ago the garden was mainly just green but all of a sudden there's colour. These alliums are a favourite of mine.
And this clematis has just opened in the last couple of days.
Has anyone else noticed that the flowers of the Welsh poppies appear larger than normal this year? Wonder why that is. They can be a nuisance seeding everywhere but I still like them.
Another favourite is this rock rose. I think it's probably helianthemum 'Fire Dragon'.
This bright pink rock rose against the path opens in bright sunshine. Beautiful May!
