Some welcome new blossom has appeared firstly the Mahonia

Then Bodnantense Dawn both have a lovely perfume

Ivy no perfume here but pretty anyhow!

The view from my kitchen sink yes I know the bird table by the wall needs straightening – two squirrels had a scrap over the peanut feeder!
The Larch needles are falling fast they tread everywhere!

The view from the front door, just leaf colour now it reminds me of that song “Where have all the flowers gone” – to the compost every one :o)

Thank you Jane :o)

Thank you Pam, the blossoms suddenly appeared in the sunshine at the weekend! the squirrels often battle it out over the peanuts but that was a pretty tough one to rock the sturdy bird table! :o)

Thank you TT - I love it as you know, it looks a bit drab today in the tippy down rain :o)

Thank you Holly Mahonia is a lovely shrub :o)

Beautiful Mahonia and fabulous views, your front garden is so colourful too.

welcome!

At the risk of repeating, what a fantastic position you have! The view from you kitchen sink must make washing up less of a chore. The larch is lovely - you get value twice with them, as the spring green is great too. Our mahonia is out as well, and so cheering. I heard the berries are edible once so tried one - it was OK but a bit bland, rather like a fuchsia berry.

Thank you Jaykaty the autumn coloured leaves have taken over from the flowers :o)

:o) Jane

Thank you Stera I never tire of looking at the views, the Larch is lovely in Spring green, I've not tried either berry I didn't know they were edible! :o)

Thank you for liking Drc :o)

Lovely views, Neellan. I hope the two little mahonias I bought in recent years grows as beautiful as yours - one was eaten by caterpillars so has a lot of catching up to do! I like the idea of your sparring squirrels too, even if it has resulted in a lop-sided bird table :)

You've got nice views from your house. I like that larch tree. The cones are very pretty aren't they :o)

Thank you Gee I hope your Mahonias thrive, this one has been here 12years, the bird table is upright once more
and the squirrels tend to come seperately now!! :o)

Thank you Hywel, the Larch cones are pretty I use them in Christmas arrangements, they are especially nice in spring they are a lovely lime green colour then :o)

WOW...... Oh how I'd love to open my front door to these views....I'm so jealous.Mahonias are such a splendid flower at this time of year, it's worth putting up with the lethal leaves they drop!!!

Thank you Gralew :o) I know what you mean about the Mahonia leaves always manage to get stabbed by one (at least) when weeding!! the Yellow of the Mahonia and Pink of the Bodnantense Dawn opposite are really cheerful on these dull rainy days :o)
