The garden is slow to wake this year. We approach the 3rd week of May, and only now is the apple tree in bloom, only now is the grapevine sprouting leaves, and the tulips are still holding their shape after several windy and rainy days.
Is your garden also a bit behind this year?
The apple tree. Lots of bees around to pollinate, too, which makes me very happy.
The grapevine sprouted last week, and it seems to determined to catch up for lost time!
The bleeding hearts and daffodils are nearly finished blooming.
Tulips are still happy to be the centre of attention.
Now, that’s yellow!
It looks like an old fashioned rose but it’s actually a double tulip. All the rest were single.
