18/05/2016 Busy in the garden.

Maximum temperature  18C, minimum  6C.  32 km/h  SW winds. 5mm rain measured this morning.
Azalea.

Common Lizard.

Climbing Rose....

The promise of more flowers soon.

Bee on the Choisya ternata,  note the pollen basket on is leg.

Californian poppies.

Peony.

Iris.

Bumble bee with a good pollen collection.

I think this may a dog rose.  It was in the cotoneaster shrub when we bought here 11 years ago.  It is a very vigorous plant and gets cut back to ground level each year.

Carrots and parsnips growing well.

Pumpkin and squash planted today. Rhubarb behind and broad beans on the right.
