Garden news.

Although the weather has been cold and extremely wet, the garden is, at last, springing to life.

A Snakes head fritillary.

Azalea, not fully out yet.

The Wisteria is really good this year. It must be all the rain!

My dear London based sister, Liz, advised us a week or so back that they were experiencing the wettest drought ever. So glad that it has helped in your beautiful garden.

Fingers crossed that the hysteria* just gets better and better.

* Someone Dad's parents knew referred to this glorious climbing plant as a "Hysteria" so this name has stuck with us - along with "agathapanthus as described by dear friend of my Folks.

Your wisteria has such very pretty pale pink blooms; I hope both you and Gordon really enjoy their delicate blooms,
