Spring is sprung......

Spring is sprung,
the grass is riz,
I wonders where the birdies is?
The bird is on the wing they say,
but that's absurd,
because the wing is on the bird!

Lets take a walk round my garden.............
starting at the back

The bush in the photo below has never flowered before as it was dominated by the huge laurel - until we cut that back hard last year.
I'm not quite sure what the yellow bush is. Any ideas?

Name that bush?!

If anyone knows what the lovely maroon plants are, I'd love to know!
They grow to about a metre high and have sweet little yellow flowers in mid to late summer.
Now to the front garden - and first the view from my bedroom window.

The quince flowers positively glow at this time of year.

The wisteria is slowly opening - it should be a good year for the flowers after our hard winter. The fragrance has been wafting around in the breeze today ...... I wish I could bottle it, I'd wear it all year round!

Let's go back up to the Japanese garden to finish off.

I hope you enjoyed your wander round?!
