Sunshine does the trick


By neellan


Before Easter bare branches and tight buds were the norm here, a few days sunshine and what a change…..

A few buds open on the Magnolia Stellata

The Cherry Blossom is about to burst forth

Narcissi looking cool

Aubretia attracting lots of Bees and Butterflies

Isn’t nature wonderful? ……in the sunshine!

Yes its been a great week weatherwise. At the risk of being boring, I loved the white narcissus too - they contrast beautifully with the wall behind. What a difference a few days of sunshine make.
