Yesterday I walked into town to meet a friend for coffee. Remember me showing you the daffodils along our main road here? Well obviously those have died back now but have been replaced with these lovely narcissi - we have had swathes of daffodils and narcissi along this road for months now.
I love this walk into town as although it is alongside the busy main road there is a wide verge with trees and if you concentrate on these and forget the traffic it is really beautiful.
I don't know if you can enlarge this one to enable you to see the detail on the petals - it's amazing and the squirly design make me want to copy it in some form of art!
Even the humble dandelion looks so cheerful and sunny especially with the little blue forget me nots don't you think?Boring old laurel isn't so boring covered with blossom each spire made up of hundreds of tiny flowers each with its complement of delicate hairy stamens.
Does anyone know what this is? I thought at first it was some kind of Kerria Japonica but my plant book doesn't mention a pink variety. Then I wondered if it might be some sort of blackberry but I haven't come up with anything remotely resembling it. Help!
In the afternoon we went to a nursery not far fom home and I thought this little arrangement worthy of a picture!
And inside the local resident who obviously thinks this is a self service shop!
