Spring blooms

You may remember that last spring was a bit of disaster for blooms. My heart broke when my much-anticipated magnolia was frosted.

Thankfully this year we did not get summer in March and had a traditionally cruel April with lots of hints at spring warmth, but very little actual sun.

May has dawned and we are into full summer – bang –  just like that. The forsythia is shinning and you can smell it all over the yard.Forsythia

Inside I have a lovely bunch of Daffies to brighten the fireplace wall.

And look! Buds on the magnolia! Stay tuned!!!
