Sad. But the next few weeks will see my spring flowers come to an end ,at present there is lots of colour so in the last few days have made the most of it.I have taken so many pictures it is hard to decide what to use.
So thinking in the depths of winter may be i would show some of the ones i have not used to date just to brighten things up


Viburnum Plicatum 3 pictures


Broom in the lower garden


Another variety


White Camassia, One Jamie has not stood on


Looking down to a lower level


Alliums self seeded


Rhododendron Sappho


As above close up this is around 30 years old and massive .


This is the first one i ever planted


Could not resist a couple more Rho dos even though i promised not to blog any more


This i call the GOU effect as last summer i cleared an area after joining the group to plant these type of plants which did not exist up to then.
Enjoy

Yours is definitely a Spring garden BJS and a beautiful one at that, I think the Viburnum family is underestimated, so lovely yet tough. I like the Camassia, must look it up.

From the post on Goy it seems as if the London area is not as far forward as some of the more northerly gardens.

Grindle like most things they have grown large over the years this one is at least 10ft high.a few years back i allowed a yellow clematis to grow up and over the top, big mistake the top started to die off because it had no light since doing away with the clematis its has taken 2 years to recover.

thanks BJ, I'm glad you said about the clematis, I had been thinking along those lines, now I will just let it be.
