I took these photos in late evening - just like in my previous 3 posts Behind Closed Gates and Rare and Unusual flowers and Exquisite Woodlanders: Erythronium revoltum. I was alone in the garden catching the final rays of sunlight ...
|One of my favourite views of the garden - last year the same cherry tree was in flower when I visited - this year it had finished already. Everything is flowering much earlier this year.|
|a canopy of spring colour greets the viewer as they reach the rock garden|
|Clumps of hazy blue scilla flowers grow under the shrubs in some parts of the garden.|
|Rhododendron flowers are terrific and there seemed to be more blooms than leaves on many shrubs. Oxlips and trilliums grow below.|
|In some areas there's a froth of creamy yellow oxlips. I'd never have seen so many in one place before!|
|Dicentra cucullaria with its white flowers and yellow tips contrasting with the soft ferny silver foliage|
|Oxlips and Dicentra formosa|
|The very first meconopsis flower opening at Branklyn - 17th April 2014 - you can see the array of blue at Branklyn from 2013 here.|
|Erythroniums with blue corydalis|
I'm involved in a photography mentorship programme at the moment so blogging about my own garden and sharing the photos across social media will be quite sparse over the next 7 weeks!
Thanks for stopping by today and I would love to hear from you. Please feel free to leave any questions or feedback in the comments section.
