Oh what a beautiful morning, oh what a beautiful day!

What a lovely sunny weekend! Just thought I would share some of the plants in my garden coming to their full bloom and cheering me up no end! Firstly the Camelia’s-

Then the other spring flowers which are gracing many gardens at the moment- love the blue of the anemone!

Next we have some recent purchases from the stalls at the local visiting international markets, got quite a bargain- 2 white azaleas for £2 and a pink one as well! Also got a leptospermum and a convolvulus for £2 each. Very happy with my purchases!

And finally, a little out of place but I saw it for £1 and just couldn’t resist the colour!

Hope you enjoy your gardens!

Sticki- this is called Pieris taiwanensis, its leaves are matt rather than glossy like the forest flame next to it and its new foliage turns bronze rather than red but its flowers are slightly bigger I think and it seems slower and more compact in growth. :-)
Thanks for all your comments, I love this time of year when everything starts to really show off!
