This is Linda's tree - we planted this magnolia in our garden to remember my friend Linda who died of cancer at the age of 32, eighteen years ago. It was only a few feet high when we planted it but it has grown into a magnificent tree that brings us joy and reminds me of our friendship.

Over the past few days the trees at the bottom of the garden have been transformed by the stunning blooming apple and cherry blossom. We only have a short way to go to appreciate their beauty.
This bulb selection I bought from Lidl back in September, for less than £3, has been flowering for over a month starting with blue hyacinths and blue anemones and has been fantastic! I hope they will be selling some more like this in the Autumn.
We have had a week of almost constant sunshine and you can almost see the plants growing before your eyes. May has to be my favourite month of the year! What is your favourite month?
