It's a funny old Spring: state of the garden in early May.

Everything has just come into flower at once.  Primroses, vinca, camellias, azaleas.  The late daffodils are still holding on, but the bluebells are coming out too!  My big cherry tree is already opening up delicate pale flowers, while the little nectarine tree is still covered in deep-pink flowers.    In the woody bit at the top, there are gangs of wood anemones, wild garlic and bluebells, all pretending not to notice one another.  And there are even red campions coming into flower too!

The top of the garden is starting to look a bit disshevelled already as everything leaps for the sky - but let us ignore that, and admire the cowslips (with the rhubarb towering magnificently behind them).
