Happy May Day!
The weather has picked up again today - so far! - and the flowers are enjoying the sunshine so I thought you might enjoy seeing them too.
This little pot of violas was free from our garden centre and they are doing so well! I have a theory about plants, they don't like being sold! We always do so well with free plants, much more so than ones we have bought. These violas are proof of that!!
The tulips are finally out! Well, these ones anyway, the others don't seem to have any buds and look a bit munched on. I am blaming the squirrel although I don't suppose it was him. Probably some bug or other. Anyway, these look great don't they!!
We have no need to go hunting bluebell woods. We have loads of them right here in our garden! They look so pretty right now and seem to be blooming more than ever this year. This makes me very happy!!!
I never pick bluebells though. Even though these are in our garden. When I was a child I picked on once and got into so much trouble I would never dare pick another one in my life!!
They are actually protected and you are not supposed to dig up true English Bluebells.
This bed looks OK right now with the wallflowers flowering, but it is soon going to need some new plants.
So that is what is blooming here for May Day! I hope that you have a great day and that the sun shines on you.
Unlike the weather we had a couple of days ago when this came down.
This is hail. Giant hail!
My "seasonal cactus" doesn't seem to mind though. It is flowering again. Again!!!! I think it chooses its own seasons although with the way the weather is so up and down perhaps it is just really confused... I am!
Hope you have a great day whatever you are doing!!
