We woke up to snow and minus figures on the thermometer that would make any gardener cringe at this time of year. Vengeance took its toil on many of the flowers as they battled with the snow, heavy frosts and then those April showers............of hail!
- The old cottage garden Pulmonaria officinalis and the amazing aerodynamic bee-flies.
- The nectar rich Lathyrus vernus which the bees have been drooling over as you'll see in the middle collage picture below (middle collage photo taken last week but flowers still in bloom today).
