Normally I don't like anything too garish or bold in the garden.
This ornamental cherry is inherited and a little too brash for my liking
but it certainly adds a splash of colour on a dull grey morning.
I prefer a little subtlety like the blossom of the apple tree
Or these pale pink tulips
You would hardly know the Soloman's Seal was there
it is so subtle
|Forget-me-nots and Lavender|
A lovely combination of Forget-me-nots scrambling through
the Lavender bush
These little pockets of colour from Honesty
and the bleeding hearts
Here and there pale lemon Cowslips puncutate the lilacs and pinks
A self-seeded Garlic Mustard plant
with tiny white flowers and pungent leaves.
All the above plants subtley blend in amongst the lush foliage
which is just how I like it.
