When I got up, the early morning light gave the garden a really magical quality, I just had to get out there with my camera.
When the sun catches the new leaves of the Amelanchier tree, they definitely glow and look quite wonderful.
It will be a while before the sun gets onto the back garden, but everything is looking very sharp in the morning light.
More flowers are opening on the rockery each day, soon this will be taking over from the woodland which is still producing more little treasures each day.
An hour later, the sun has almost reached the back garden, just the sun, the birds and my camera, what better place could there be?
On my way back I noticed that my Pulsatilla on the scree is now fully open, what a difference a bit of sunshine makes.
I also noticed a familiar honey perfume wafting on the breeze and saw that my Euphorbia melliferra was in full flower, the perfume spreads across the whole garden.
A tiny narcissus flower on the scree, tall in stature but such a tiny flower, I don’t remember buying and planting this one!
Spring is such a wonderful time of year and when the light is just right, it is totally magical! I went for my second vaccination this afternoon, so now feel that I can start going out again in a couple of weeks time, but will I want to? I’ve got so used to being here by myself, in my garden most of the time, but if I start going out again my garden won’t get the attention that it has had from me for the past 14 months, standards will slip! Maybe just one day a week to start with, what do you think?
