These are the shrubs and plants that flower in the spring – flowering usually during the the months of March, April or May.
It was quite a challenge photographing this little flower as it is only about 10cms high! Lying on the ground with a cold wind blowing all the flowers around, this was one of those occasions when a swivel screen on the camera would have been useful. Even a little insect had taken refuge inside the flower.
My Camellia shrub has loads of flower buds this year, but unfortunately something has nibbled the ends of the buds so that when the flowers open, the petals have scalloped edges! I suspect a snail is the culprit. This one appears to be unscathed.
Spotted the first ladybird of the year today – a Seven spot ladybird. We hardly saw any last year and as a result had so many aphids on the runner beans. I do hope this little lady survives and has lots of babies to eat the aphids!
