The fruit trees in the garden are covered with blossom this year. Crab apple is so useful for wildlife, blossom for the bees and then fruits for birds. I have made crab apple jelly before now and it is delicious.
Geranium macrorrhizum is great for ground cover. I have also found that if I plant around favourite rabbit plants, the odour that the leaves produce when brushed, keeps the rabbits away.
Pulmonaria, another bee plant. This is a particular favourite for me. Many years ago my father gave me a plant from his garden. Each year I divide them and plant them in the woodland. There is now an abundance...........one little plant has produced many.
Epimedium 'Frohnleiten' I adore this little woodlander. I love its spreading happy, the way it dances in the breeze and the fact the new leaves have a pretty red tinge.
For the first time in this garden, all the maples have flowered. Whilst they are very tiny flowers, they look so beautiful en masse, they really are a picture.
Pulsatilla..........not too sure if I like the red. I much prefer the pretty purple flowers, but sadly the slugs seemed to prefer those too :( They have devoured every purple bloom and left the red. Such is life...............
Hope the sun is shining and your garden is thriving....................
