All the flowers at once

Double-flowered lady's smocks are flowering around the canoe in our garden

The bluebells are out.  It seems to be a dry spring this year though, so I don't think they will be around long, they prefer it damp.  The daffodils are still around, but starting to fade.  There are violets, primroses, red campion and stitchwort all over the hedges too.

Coming back down into the village, looking west towards the sunset through an oak tree.  I love the golden colour of oaks coming into leaf,and Brythen is such a wonderful long-legged curvy shape.
