Spring in shades of pink
Our children have returned from Uni this weekend and the garden has come out in a blaze of colour to welcome them home.
|The blossom on Linda's magnolia tree has been outstanding|
It has been another beautiful day today, we even managed to have a Sunday roast in the garden.
My daughter made us a wonderful rhubarb crumble with the first rhubarb this year, picked from the garden, it was delicious.
The sun was shining through the leaves of the crocosmia. Daisy and Twinkle were in the garden too enjoying the company and the sunshine and made perfect models for my plants!.
|Daisy with Euphorbia wulfenii|
|Twinkle with Euphorbia oblongata. I purchased the seed from Sarah Raven a few years ago, she uses it in most of her flower arrangements. It is a wonderful plant it is easy to grow and seeds everywhere but can easily be pulled out.|
A couple of years ago my daughter an I attempted to cross pollinate a deep purple and white hellebore, and the result is this light pink one at the front of the picture, which I think is quite pretty.

On Weymouth beach this afternoon everyone was enjoying the sunshine.

Hope you had a good weekend too.
