When I bought my bungalow, nearly 13 years ago, it was all lawn. It is one of three built in the 1960s on a small meadow backing onto woodland.
The crab apple in front of the bungalow is in full bloom (the only plant I inherited from the former owners that I love) and it's just stunning. All I could hear as I took these photographs was the gentle hum of all the bees.
primula 'gold lace'
ajuga reptens purpureum
tulip (don't know variety)
alpine (no idea what!)
Welsh poppy and purple leaved violet
contorted hazel (hoping to cut some of this for an easter tree)
veronica (bit blurry - chicken pecked me!)
Apologies if I have got any of the plant names wrong. It was lovely taking time to appreciate my plants. I hope you have enjoyed them too!
